Dhamma & Sinhala School



Dhamma School

The knowledge of Dhamma and discipline introduced to children, at their early ages help them gain wisdom as well as cultivate social ethics, making them good citizens. Chicago Budhist Vihara is considering the propagation of Dhamma to younger generation as a paramount responsibility.

We Conduct the Dhamma School, once a month usually 3rd Saturday from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm. We have classes for various age groups.

Due to the fact that most of the congregation of the Chicago Buddhist Vihara are of Sri Lankan origin, In addition to the Dhamma School we also conduct Sinhalese (The native Language spoken by majority of the Sri Lankans) classes providing the knowledge to our children of their roots and culture.
