Six years ago, with the blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, an online platform took shape to provide guidance to children and parents on how spirituality can be practised every day. Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas, Tamil Nadu, launched its portal, called sssbalvikas.in
Smt. Vidya Srinivasan, a Bal Vikas guru for decades and the then national co-ordinator for Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas, launched the portal at Prashanthi Nilayam. The website today hosts content for Bal Vikas gurus, children, and parents. It has activities that children can take up individually or as a group, teaching aids for gurus, and supporting resources that parents can browse through.
With Bhagawan’s blessings, the platform is going national. It will have content in all languages over the next few months, starting with resource material in eight languages.
While Tamil and English content is available for the entire Bal Vikas course, we started in Telugu last November on Swami birthday and Hindi, the previous year, covering only the syllabus for Group one.
The portal will also help anyone interested in Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas know about the centres in different locations.
