Daily Inspiration

"Don't just invest on the child, also invest in the child. 'Investment on' gives outer prosperity. 'Investment in' ensures inner unfoldment and lasting prosperity. True education is 'investment on' the child complemented with 'investment in' the child." ~ Swami Chinmayananda

Bala Vihar

In Bala Vihar, the rich cultural heritage of India, including moral values, are taught to children and youth at different levels, using the medium of stories, drama, arts, crafts and discussion. Children are also taught popular Bhajans and Slokas. Chinmaya Mission centers have become models for teaching India’s rich spiritual heritage and the fundamentals of Vedanta to the next generation. Chinmaya Bala Vihar classes match the child’s learning ability with the teaching material and techniques. 

Chinmaya Madhuvan

Chinmaya Madhuvan is one of the latest centers located in Yardley, PA. Our typical Sunday morning, is a buzzing bee hive of activity. Over 70 children and adults descend into the campus of Chinmaya Madhuvan, bright eyed and ready for 2 hours of fun and learning. Children ranging from 4 years to 17 years sit in rapt prayer to mark the beginning of the Bala Vihar classes.

Beautiful Chinmaya Madhuvan also houses a Lord Krishna Temple where families participate in religious ceremonies officiated by a learned priest. Be it a fun environment for learning for children, an interactive spiritual study session for adults, a religious experience for the devoted or a peaceful refuge for the seeker, our ashram caters to everyone's needs.

Balavihar Graduates

Dear Swamiji,

My deepest thanks to you for making me a member of the Kedar family for last 13 years. Your simplicity humor and personality has made the Kedar families feel like more than just friends to me. The lessons I have learned from you and Balavihar will be carried into my college years and whenever I think of Chinmaya Mission, I will first remember your guidance.

Most sincerely,

Aditya Kumar


Hari Om Swamiji,

I would like to personally thank you for your presence in my life throughout Balavihar education. I still remember the first time that I came to the mandir when I was six years old. You had taken me down to the book store to get me a Balavihar bag, and all I could think of was how tall you were! I officially joined Balavihar six years later and still had the bag and My Prayers book that you had given to me so many years ago. I am so glad that I joined Balavihar when I did, because learning about Hinduism really helped me learn more about myself. We have shared a lot of laughs together and enjoyed many visits to Don Pablos! I am one of the happiest and lickiest people in the world to have you as a Guru. Thank you so much for always being available for support and guidance.

Sincerely,

Sunaina Gohil


Hari Om Swamiji,

Thank you for the 14 amazing years I have shared with you at the mission. You have taught me innumerable lessons about my culture, my heritage and my religion. These are the lessons that I will treasure and reflect back on when I am away at college. You have played a major role in my life and I will be sire to continue coming to you for guidance. Thank you for everything you have done. It has meant the world to me.

Respectfully,

Adithi Rajagopalan
