Curriculum

The two key components of this year�s BYG curriculum are Hindu Culture and the Bhagavad Gita. The first module, Hindu culture, is based on the idea that Hinduism is more a way of life, rather than a religion. It is part of who we are, how we act, what we eat, what we value�in fact, it defines how we live. However, practicing Hinduism or being a Hindu in a country and a state where the majority is not Hindu is no easy task, especially for teens. Getting a deeper understanding of Hinduism will help Indian-American teenagers to balance their Indian life and their American life, and live a happier and healthier life.

The second module, Bhagavad Gita, which is part of the Mahabharata, is among the most sacred of the Hindu scriptures and serves as a concise and practical guide to everyday and eternal life. It is a source of great wisdom conveyed through a dialog on the battlefield between Lord Krishna and Arjuna. While the Gita serves as a guide for all ages, it is of special relevance to teenagers who face constant pressure from various sources and have to deal with conflict at many levels.
