Chinmaya BalaVihar 


“Children are not vessels to be filled but lamps to be lit. The seed of
spiritual value should be sown in young hearts…It must be cared for with
the warmth of love and affection, and such a tree shall blossom forth
flowers of brotherhood, love, peace, bliss, and Perfection.”.
– Pujya Swami Chinmayananda
