yatpāda padmam hṛdaye nidhāya|
Samāpta dīkṣā munayo babhūvuḥ
tam bāla dattam śaraṇam prapadye||
(Śrī Datta Dhyāna Mālikā)
Though the form of Bāla Datta (infant form of Lord Datta) is small, it holds immense luster. By constantly meditating upon His holy feet, the sages achieve fulfillment of their penance. I take refuge in that infant form of Lord Datta.
Vision:To make children grow spiritually and inspire them to be good human beings.
Bala Datta Pledge: As a leader of the future, I pledge service, dedication, and compassion to the society I live in, through mentoring, random acts of kindness, and volunteering my time and efforts to local causes. As an individual I pledge to make a conscious effort for personal and spiritual growth to be a better human being and to accept the ideas and contributions of others. I pledge to be a helping hand to those who need assistance or guidance and to comfort them in a way that they feel secure. I pledge to make a difference with everything I do to respect others, to feed the hungry, and to set a worthy example for all children to follow. Sri Swamiji, please give me the honor, integrity, self-control and courage to help make a better, more peaceful society for everyone.
