The source books of the spiritual wisdom [of India] are the four Vedas: rig-veda, yajur-veda, sama-veda, and atharva-veda. The Vedas are fulfilled in the last portion called Vedanta or Upanishads. Another famous Sanskrit verse likens these Upanishads to a cow and the Gita becomes the cow’s milk: sarvopanisadogavah, dogdha gopala-nandanah partho vatsah sudhibhokta dughdham gitamrtam mahat. The Gita, the milk, is milked by Lord Krishna himself, who is presented as an avatar of the Lord in the Mahabharata and in the Bhagavata. He is the one who is teaching the Gita to Arjuna. Arjuna serves as the calf to whom the milk, the message of the Gita, is given.

    Baal Vidya helps my kids to understand and appreciate Indian culture and Hindu religion. The weekly classes provide them an age specific environment where they learn about the Hindu epics like Ramayan, Mahabharat and scriptures like Bhagvad Gita, Upanishads and Vedas in a modern and practical context.

    It is just as important for young kids to be culturally smart as it is to be academically smart and that’s why Baal Vidya is really beneficial.

    For just one hour a week, Baal Vidya is really useful for people to be more open minded about others and your own religion as Canada is a very multicultural country.
