HTCS Educational Activities

Religious Classes - Vedic Hinduism (for Children)

About the Class:

The Vedic Hinduism classes provide children with exposure to our religion and culture. Using these classes as a means, our goal is to instill in children a sense of belonging and a yearning to understand the explicit and implicit messages provided through our religion and traditional beliefs.

Bhajans are easily learnt by the kids and can stay with them for a lifetime.

Yoga one of the richness of our tradition, has been adopted as a simple and workable means to a healthy body and a sound mind throughout the world.

Craft classes involve art work that relate to our culture and beliefs and serve as a means to express our involvement in this community.

Prayers/Shlokas and Stories help us with answers to many questions. As we know, Hinduism cannot be taught with a single book or a single discourse. It is learnt through a journey that involves being a part of the tradition. Hinduism, being a way of life, has accumulated over the years: many moral stories, written and oral philosophical teachings and a wealth of knowledge. Hinduism has also added value and meaning to our day-to-day life through simple rituals and beliefs that are symbolic ways to reach the Ultimate.
