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 Buddhist Vihara is considering the propagation of Dhamma to the younger generation as a paramount responsibility. We Conduct the Dhamma School, twice a month on Sunday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. We have classes for various age groups.
