We offer Shloka class on an optional basis for children enrolled in the Bala Vihar program.

Shloka’ is a Sanskrit word which means a prayerful verse written according to certain grammatical rules. ‘Stotrams’ are shlokas of multiple verses, with varying degrees of complexity in words and meter, and set to various tunes. Stotrams are sung in praise of various Gods and Goddesses that are manifestations of the Supreme Reality.
