    Relaunch of In-person BV Next Semester (Starting Jan 9, 2022):

    You may have seen the recent email message delivered to your Inbox re: relaunch of in-person Bala Vihar, starting Jan 9, 2022. Here’s a high-level plan for in-person BV:

    • All the facilities will be sanitized and ready by the end of the year
    • We’re consolidating in-person sessions into 2 sessions per facility, on Sundays only:  
      • Saaket: S1 (Sunday, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m.) and S2 (Sunday, 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.)
      • Chitrakoot:  C1 (Sunday, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m.) and C2 (Sunday, 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.)
      • Frisco: F1 (Sunday, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m.) and F2 (Sunday, 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.)
    • Cultural classes and teachers’ satsangas will be held between the two sessions. Due to the logistics constraints at Frisco, however, adult satsang and cultural classes will be available only at Saaket & Chitrakoot.
    • Initial session mapping from current eBV to the new in-person BV is as follows: eBV1 => C1, S1 and F1; eBV2 => C2, S2 and F2 
    • We’ll try and accommodate transfer requests, subject to session caps, especially for Frisco
      • The details of sessions, timings, coordinators and Swamiji/Brahmacharins’ assignments are shown below: 

      Thank you and HariH OM!
