It is an educational experience for both you and your child! The curriculum comprises of a series of classes to benefit children of various age groups. Students learn from our puranas, ithihasas, Vedas, slokas and bhajans.
Swamiji has put in lot of time and effort and himself taught in Prajna training camp for the teachers to impart best Vedic knowledge to our children.
We are happy to inform you that we have started a new class "Sisu Module" for the 4-5 year old students. This is a unique offering from Houston JET USA chapter.
This is a specially designed module for these young ones to serve as a stepping stone to our religion, culture and festivals". Most of us were blessed to learn these from our grand parents and parents while growing up in India. We are trying to provide those same basic opportunities to these curious minds! We intend for this module to be fun, hands-on and educative! To get the most out of this class and also module 1 basic, it is necessary that the parents attend Prajna classes along with their young ones. This is an excellent way to help your child to keep up with what is going on at the temple and also to build upon what is being learnt! We are also excited to announce that we will be starting 5th module Bhagavad Gita for senior students.
