Chinmaya Mission conducts the Balavihar for the purpose of teaching India’s rich spiritual heritage and the fundamentals of Vedanta to the younger generation.
Balavihar is a place for children to bloom and grow. In Balavihar we help children to make the right choices in life, because it is these choices that will determine their future. The Balavihar curriculum is based entirely on our scriptures. Through games, arts, crafts, stories, and other unique techniques, the Balavihar program imparts and reinforces spiritual and cultural values. The curriculum designed for all grade levels (Pre-K through Grade 12) is creative and dynamic, and covers a wide range of topics such as:
- Stories of Ramayana and Bhagavatam
- Symbolism in Hinduism
- Selections from Ramacharitmanasa
- Values from the Srimad Bhagavad Gita
- Hindu Culture / Sanatana Dharma
