Ever since the temple opening in Melbourne, there has been an emphasis on the spiritual development of children . With the grace of God, bal sabha was established in 2006. The primary aim of the bal sabha is to develop satsang and spirituality in the young children. These objectives are achieved through the regularly Saturday classes. We try our very best for children to derive maximum benefit from these sessions and realize that religion and spiritualism does have a place in our lives.
In addition to satsang education, the children do take part in many other activities which include, but are not limited to:-
- Termly exams
- Quiz (both internal and competing against) the adults
- Diwali card , rongoli etc
- Clean up Australia Day
- Tree Planting event
- Kirtan singing in the main sabha
- And many other general duties for and behalf of the temple.
The students have kept on increasing .These children show a lot of interest and get involved in baal sabha. I really like to thank the main committee for acknowledging and motivating the children by giving them a general token at the end of each year. I would also like to thank a few of the youth who have come forward and having been giving us suggestions.
