(Structured Classes in Hinduism for Children)
IS a weekly gathering of children, between the ages of five to fifteen years that takes place in Chinmaya Mission Centres or in private homes, under the supervision of trained teachers.
The aim of Bala Vihar is to help children bloom, grow, and inculcate values through fun-filled activities. Bala Vihar enhances the overall development of the personality of a child at all levels — physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
Each week a specific value such as caring, sharing, forgiveness is taught and discussed. In the class the children share with their friends whether and to what extent they practiced that value. Shravanam and mananam start in childhood itself. Later, in the teenage years, focus is on understanding spirituality and fundamental Vedantic principles. This is a unique and remarkable feature of the Curriculum.
The intensive syllabus covers stories, topics and texts from Hinduism – the Vedas, Puranas, and Itihasas.
The syllabus is child-friendly and taught in age-appropriate levels.
