Knowing Hinduism!


What is Hinduism?

Unlike a religion in the Western sense, Hinduism is a way of life based on the teachings of ancient sages and scriptures such as the Vedas and the Upanishads.
Without a founder or a core scriptural doctrine, Hinduism is defined by a rich variety of ideas and practices from various religious and cultural groups throughout India. Because of this diversity, Hinduism is a continuously evolving religious tradition with contributions from many individuals.
Composed of layers of complexity, Hinduism incorporates a basic mindset that all beings have divine and immortal souls working through the cycles of birth and death to reach ultimate spiritual growth.


Tricities Temple Sunday Balavihar


We welcome your child and you to Balavihar. We have two Balavihar classes at the RIACC Tricities Temple. Details are provided here or contact the Balavihar Teachers. We follow the Chinmaya Mission’s syllabus for Balavihar. The greatest boon given by Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda to the younger generation is Balavihar.
