Om Chanting Program
Let us inspire children and ourselves to develop love for chanting, the Lord, and interest in the great wisdom of this ancient tradition through chanting!
Brought to you by to the love, inspiration and guidance of our Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanadaji.
A great opportunity for children (5+) and adults to learn our sacred prayers and famous shlokas. This program is open to all who may be interested.
For Bala Vihar families, children are already learning most of these chants in their respective classes. This program will award children who put in a little extra effort to fluently learn / memorize the various chants. Register now to participate!
