TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR FAMILIES
I am so grateful for the last 8 years in this program and will miss it dearly. The lessons of Balvihar have shaped who I am and how I interact with others, teaching me respect, empathy, compassion and so much more. It has guided and supported me through personal experiences I have been through. I really have to thank the mission for creating such an open and safe space for teaching these topics.Teenager
I have been coming to Balvihar from the age of 5. We do many fun things like Yoga, listen to stories behind the Epics, prayers and bhajans. I have learnt that "Being mindful of others brings happiness".Child
I absolutely adore the classes as they are so engaging, thought-provoking and fun.Not only is Chinmaya Mission a great way to learn slokas and bhajans but it is also a wonderful learning experience. I have been going since I was very young and it has instilled many strong morals inside me while letting me explore and engage with my culture and allowing me to join a community of caring, loving peopleChild
