Balvihar started with just a handful of kids in our temple many years ago and now is over 250 children strong and continues to grow. Our Balvihar program helps to cultivate Samskaras in young minds, giving them a positive identity as Hindus! Samskaras are the childhood impressions that live on in our psyche and influence our actions throughout life. Unlike in India, where the mainstream breathes Hinduism, our children grow up in a diverse U.S. society so we need to teach them what it means to be a Hindu. Balvihar is a vibrant group of children and parents with an ever evolving curriculum that varies according to age. It includes yoga and prayers, an introduction to gods, the meaning of Hindu symbols, the history of India through the stories of saints and leaders, the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, and Vedic values, principles and practices of the Hindu religion. The year-end Annual Day Program showcases what they have learned through songs, dramas and dance.
