Balagokulam & Chetna
Gokulam is where lord Krishna’s magical childhood days were spent. It was here that his divine powers came to light.
“Every child has that spark of divinity within.” –Swami Vivekananda
Balagokulam is a forum for children to discover and manifest that divinity. It will enable Hindu children in the US to appreciate their cultural roots and learn Hindu values. This is done through games, yoga, stories, bhajans, shlokas, arts and crafts. Balagokulam and Chetna (Youth) programs are of 90 minutes duration that includes various activities related to physical, intellectual and spiritual needs. We have a dedicated team of teachers who are willing to work with and teach our children. Balgokulam is a HTCI sponsored program. The child needs to be registered for Balagokulam and the registration form is available here. The parents of Balagokulam students must be members of HTCI and the membership form is can be downloaded from here.
Balagokulam classes are conducted in five groups, Grades – KG (Druv), 1st (Eklavya), 2nd (Prahalad), 3rd and 4th (Arjun), and 5th and 6th (Krishna). The Chetana classes are for children in Grade 7 and above. Balagokulam classes are held every Sunday from 10:30 to Noon. The Chetana Youth Classes only meet 2nd and 4th Sundays (10:30-noon).
Every year the Balagokulam (for children) and Chetna classes are conducted based on a theme. The theme for this year is “Seva”. Using the links shown below, you can download the detailed flyers about Balgokulam, and Chetna programs and the calendar of events for this year.
