Shloka Classes

'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. The Chinmaya Somnath Shloka class focuses on teaching different Stotrams to children. They serve to inspire children with devotion to the Supreme.

At the Chinmaya Somnath chapter, the Shloka class is exceptionally popular. Shloka class children are often invited to recite Stotrams at different temples, various CMWRC events and other functions.

At Chinmaya Somnath, two Shloka classes of 40 minutes duration each are offered on an optional basis for children enrolled in the Bala Vihar program. The two shloka classes have similar curriculum. The first Shloka class is scheduled in between Bala Vihar Sessions 1 and 2; the second Shloka class is scheduled after Bala Vihar Session 2.

Shloka 1: 11:10 AM - 11:50 AM
