DOWNLOAD - Leaders with Empathy and Compassion with Indian Family Values as a backdrop - Lesson Learnt in 1 page a year - Desired Outcome


Visitors: Please feel free to browse through the detailed year-wise syllabus and content from the pages for respective years. You are welcome to copy, print and distribute the matter as you please for the benefit of youth development. We strongly believe it should not be used for profitable purposes of any individual or entity. We are developing the curriculum for the next few years. As we develop we will keep posting them.

Form your own school with a few families: If you are in a community and you want to use the curriculum, feel free to do so. Build your own place. So many people are doing it all over the world, you can do it also. All books are available for you to print and distribute. We are not asking for any credit. The curriculum is aimed at basic values of GOODNESS and practices without any interpretation by Swamijis. All the material is published and the parents know what is being taught to a 15 minute segment.  Curriculum is aimed at parents knowing exactly what their children are learning. Our grand idea is to showcase the Indian community values, show how to support each other and  leave the world a BETTER place and NOT a BITTER place. Community spirit can bring Joy irrespective of how much money is in one's pocket. Keep in touch.

We get together 10:00 am and do a 5 minute prayer in the hallway. If you come late, you will wait outside for 5 minutes. - Watch Video.
