“Our Balagokulam chapter adopted a city park and a road. Our whole family enjoys the cleanup work along with other families. It is like get-together for community service. Thanks to Balagokulam for teaching my kids the importance and joy of service to local community"
"It’s an honor to be a small part of this major effort. Thanks for the opportunity to give back to the society in general and to the future generations in particular. Kudos to all those who were involved. Great teamwork."
HSS, a great thing happened to me in USA. Not just to me but also to my kids. Learning about Bharat, Yoga, Suryanamaskar with fun games and what not keeping every one connected to roots, culture and traditions. I have met talented people to get guidance. My daughters participate and enjoy in every program that is organized by HSS. Thank You HSS.
I want my kids to understand our rich Indian traditions, values and culture. I want them to feel proud of it which we alone as parents can't do it. Shakha helps teach them this.
Attending Balagokulam sessions has truly been an enriching experience for my daughter. All the activities planned within the sessions including the shlokas, geet, stories, discussions and games are all oriented around the kids’ age group and interests embedded with our beautiful Hindu ideologies. There has never been a dull moment and a lot of learning coupled with fun which encourages the regularity to attend & stokes the kids’ inner learning appetite!
I am the parent of a child who is attending Dharma Bee online Shakha. As a parent I feel so great as my kid is learning the Hindhu Dharma and its importance. This is really a very good platform for kids to learn ancient Hindu values, Yoga sutras, Hindu temples and stories from epics. He is also having fun with the games and fun puzzles that are held. Thank you so much.
Both my son and I have learned value for people and community. Most importantly, Vihaan started to know that Shakha means not just one hour of discipline, surya namaskar, khel and shloka. It's a path of living and leading a good life with spiritual as well as practical values. with Shakha, we know the meaning of extended family. As an Indian parent in the USA, we know it's hard to drive our cultural values into our kids. But, our shakha family makes it simple and interesting.
Balagokulum, I believe is a overall transformative process that focuses on all aspects of child development. Kids learn yoga, shlokas, stories, art & craft work and especially games where they learn to remove inhibitions, get involved, experience team work and enjoy.
Most of the cultural activities are targeted either for children or for adults, but balagokulam is an exception. It is a place where my entire family can participate, play together and learn Hindu values in a very fun filled environment. I always look forward to our weekly gathering.
"My kids learned about the Hindu festivals not just by reading about them but actually practicing the deeper meaning of it. We tied Rakhi to police, fire fighters, elected officials by visiting and thanking them. I say that is the true leaning"
