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
