About Shishu Vihar

Shishu Vihar is Chinmaya Mission’s newest creative device to ‘catch them young’; a forum for anyone aged below 4 years. Shishu Vihar is an assemblage of infants, toddlers and young and new mothers for early introduction to spiritual education.


Indian tradition being familiar with the significance of sowing ethical seeds early, even as early as the pre-natal stage – Shishu Vihar strives to provide opportunities for this, thereby enabling spiritual development through cultural education. Classes follow a modern structure of play groups where children learn through song, stories, arts and crafts, appropriate to their age and development. For effective learning outcomes, several props, music and an extensive use of colours, shapes and forms are utilised to relay information to the infant.


Shishu Vihar classes are for parents and children between the age of one and four years. Sowing the seeds of spiritual wisdom in young hearts, this is a unique class for pre-school and nursery children to help develop the spiritual aspect of their personality. The weekly meeting of sevikas and children is brought alive with: Chanting…Bhajan Singing…Story Time…Art and Craft…Celebrating Festivals.
