Gurudeva Paramahansa Yoganandaji felt deeply for the welfare of children and took a lifelong interest in their all-around education. He said:"It isn't academic education alone that makes people happy. It is "how-to-live" education — how to develop a harmonious, moral life, stronger will power, and spiritual understanding — that will bring happiness."

We sincerely hope you will take to heart this wisdom and counsel of Gurudeva and invest that extra time and effort needed to bring your child/children to the Sadhanalaya to participate in this specially designed program.

Registrations are now open and will close as soon as we are full.

May Gurudeva's love and light ever bless and uplift our lives....
