Short Term Courses

We offer short term courses that will benefit students to understand he finer truths of life.Quoting from Prahlada Maharaj’s words – śravaṇaṁ kīrtanaṁ viṣṇoḥ smaraṇam [SB 7.5.23], children should be given the right teachings from a very young age. It is a fallacy that old age is the time to turn to the scriptures. The prescribed practices in our scriptures actually act as a guiding light to lead a regulated, peaceful life and hence have to be followed right from a tender age. We blend these time tested teachings with a touch of modernity to make it more palatable for young ones.

At the heart of this program lies the lofty vision of creating responsible, global citizens, with firm roots in our rich Indian culture and values. Our facilitators use well-mapped lesson plans and activities to make the classes interactive

Personality Plus : A unique Value Education program based on the strong values of the Indian Vedic wisdom.

Gita Quest : A well-planned module of handpicked and age-appropriate Bhagavad-gita shlokas will enhance the quality of thinking of students.
