AHA is proud to offer Bal Sanskar Shala for children of every age every Sunday from 10am to 11:15am at the Temple. It is a wonderful opportunity for kids and youth to learn and practice our Hindu way of life, develop social and spiritual awareness as well as leadership skills in a fun and enjoyable environment.
What is Bala Sanskar?
Bal Sanskar Shala is the place where a seemingly ordinary cowherd boy, Krishna, blossomed in to a divine incarnation. It is here where his magical days of childhood were spent and his powers came to be recognized.
At AHA we believe that every child has that spark of divinity within. Bala Vihar is a forum for children from our community to discover and manifest that divinity. It will enable our Hindu children in US to appreciate their cultural roots, learn Hindu values in an enjoyable manner while making friends. They will also develop a sense of Seva – Service to mankind and our society.
Benefits to Children, Family and Society:
Activities:Children will have lots of fun while they learn. Activities are planned for their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual development.
Weekly Activities: Games, Yoga, Vedas, Stories, Bhajans, Shlokas, Mantras, Sanskrit, Bhagvad Gita, Arts and Crafts and many more.
Festivals: Hindu Festivals like Ganesh Pooja, Holi, Janmashtami, and Shivaratri are celebrated with a special focus on children from Bala Sanskar Shala’s participation. Children perform the pooja themselves and explain the meaning behind the festivals.
Camps: We conduct annual Bala Sanskar camps. A time to explore, enjoy and make friends.
Community Service: Sewa or service is the best way for us to realize the divinity in all and serve the needy. Children from Bala Vihar classes are encouraged to visit elderly people in hospitals and/or participate in any appropriate activities such as volunteering, etc.
