By the Lord's grace, and the blessings of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda and Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, Chinmaya Bala Vihar, Chinmaya Mission's world-renowned program of spiritual and cultural Vedantic learning for children, remains one of the most exceptional and unique programs to date. Pujya Gurudev conceived and coined "Bala Vihar," and set its structure and syllabus for optimal learning.

Under the guidance of CM Tampa's resident acharya, Swamini Akhilananda, the spiritual growth of CMBV students and sevaks remains the key focus. Chinmaya Mission's detailed teachers' manuals and exclusive training resources help give CMBV students a systematic and inspiring syllabus each year. All CMBV parents are highly encouraged to participate in the simultaneously held Chinmaya Study Groups, so that they can spiritually grow and unfold with their child.

We welcome all students, of all ages and backgrounds, to our CM Vedantic classes and activities, which promote individual and total spiritual growth through knowledge, devotion, service. We look forward to another year of love, learning, and laughter with you. Hari Om!
