Welcome to the Chinmaya Vrindavan Teachers' Blog

Hari om,

Bala Vihar is a place where children come to learn about the culture and end up discovering themselves in the due course!

When children are younger, many a times, they may not be able to articulate to their parents - what they learnt in class or the activities they did. They may either give generic, sporadic or even evasive answers! This may continue well into their high school years as well :).

Hence, this blog has been created to archive the activities and lessons taught at Bala Vihar each week. It is to keep the parents in the loop, as well as help students catch up if they have missed a class or two.

On the righthand side, is a table for each of the 3 sessions - Friday PM, Sunday AM, Sunday PM. Choose your child's grade below that to read the postings each week, as given by their teachers.
(Note: The selected posts appear below Gurudev's quote.)

This is an effort to keep the parental connection as well as involvement, in the learning and growth of their children while at Bala Vihar. May our children excel in all their endeavors!

Let's join hands for the cause.

Please visit regularly for the latest updates each week.

Children are not vessels to be filled but lamps to be lit.
- Swami Chinmayananda
