Vivekananda Balaka Sangha

Vivekananda Balaka Sangha is a value orientation and personality development program for children conducted for boys in the age group of 10 years and above  (students of classes XI to X).

The course is designed to instill in children the eternal values of our cultural and spiritual heritage, and to bring out their latent talent through activities like music, yogasana, drawing, painting, Vedic and Bhagavad Gita chanting, recitation of hymns and verses, storytelling. The Balaka Sangha was designed to give practical expression to some of the eternal values and virtues presented by the great spiritual tradition of India as exemplified and taught by Swami Vivekananda. The directive principles of the Balaka Sangha are:

  1. Development of a harmonious character based on all-rounded growth—physical, mental, moral, and spiritual.
  2. Recognition of the dignity of the individual and the spiritual unity and equality of all human beings.
  3. Realization of the fact that one’s true welfare and progress is inseparably linked to that of others, and that sharing and loving service must become an integral part of one’s life.
  4. Stress on the truth that we are the makers of our own destiny, and
  5. Individual and social well-being can be achieved only through steady and sustained effort.

Every Sundays the Balaka Sangha sessions will be held for registered candidates from 6:45 am to 11:45 am in the Math premises.
