Gurukul

Gurukul classes are currently being offered at Yugal Kunj (located in Duluth, Georgia) during the academic school year to open young minds to spirituality and the richness of Hinduism in a very fun-filled and loving atmosphere. The children are exposed to basic Hindu ethical and moral concepts from our ancient scriptures that will not only help them to be proud of their heritage but also start to develop their character.

Academic Year 2020-2021

Children classes are being offerred at the following three levels.

  • Level 1: This includes children who are 4-7 years old in the current academic year. They will be in the "Baal Ramayan" class where they will learn important stories from the Ramayan. The story telling will be complemented with hands-on activities that will help with the retention of the material while having fun.
  • Level 2: This includes children who are in the age group of 8-12 years in the current academic year. They will be in the "Hindu Values (A - Z)" class where they will be taught about a character quality beginning with a letter in the alphabet (e.g. Ambition, Belief, Compassion, etc.) and about an individual that exemplifies that quality. They will also learn about the life story of a saint (e.g. Ashtavakra, Bhrigu, Chaintanya Mahaprabhu, etc.) Classroom discussions and hands-on activities will keep them engaged.
  • Level 3: This includes children who will be 13 – 18 years old during the current academic year. These children will be learning about our "Itihaas." The children will learn about various characters from the Ramayan and Mahabharat and analyze the choices they made and the consequences of those choices. The children are expected to know the story of Ramayan and Mahabharat as we will not be covering the chronological story in this class. The spiritual philosophy will be discussed and analyzed in the context of today's modern life and the challenges that teenagers face in school and at home, especially growing up in the West.

There are about 35 classes in the entire academic year. Gurukul tuition is $220 for each child for the entire academic year.

The first 3 classes are free for students. This allows new families to explore the curriculum without having to make the commitment. If a student chooses to continue past Week 3, they are obligated to pay the tuition to continue.

Parents are invited to join the children each week and especially for festival celebrations.
