"Children are not vessels to be filled, but lamps to be lit. The seed of spiritual values should be sown in young hearts, and the conditions made favourable for sprouting and steady growth through proper control and discipline. It must be cared for with the warmth of love and affection, and such a tree shall blossom forth flowers of brotherhood, universal love, peace, bliss, beauty, and Perfection"
- Swami Chinmayananda.
Balagokulam is a gathering of children, between the ages of four to sixteen years that takes place in Community centres or in private homes, under the supervision of dedicated teachers and parents. The aim of Balagokulam is to help children bloom, grow, and inculcate values of Sanatana Dharma, through regular study and fun-filled activities as well. Balagokulam seeks to enhance the overall development of the personality of participating children at all levels — physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
Balagokulam sessions are conducted twice each month, i.e on the first and third Sunday from 3.00pm onwards
The Balagokulam is a division of Sanatana Ireland exclusively for children and it is governed by Sanatana Ireland's trustee committee. Balagokulam's curriculum includes systematic study of the various religious texts of Sanatana Dharma, with the aim of igniting the young minds and leading them on their journey of discovering the Divine within themselves. Other regular activities include learning basic Yoga asanas, the various rites and rituals, traditional ways of celeberating festivals and also learing Bhajans and Mantra japas. For added effectiveness the children are divided into two groups, one senior and the other junior, on the basis of their age.
A typical curriculum includes:
• Basics of Vedanta
• Shrimad Bhagavatam
• Symbolism in Hinduism
• Hanuman Chalisa
• India and Festivals of India
• Values from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and Ramacharitamanasa
• Characters of Ramayana and Mahabharata
• Hindu Culture
