CHINMAYA MISSION

If Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda chose to leave the hills and come down to the plains he also developed a plan via which to achieve this. And neither was this going to be a one off, but an ongoing feature. Hence Swami Chinmayananda had a Vision to begin with and he therefore developed a mission through which to achieve it.

Vision Statement: The inner transformation of individual’s through knowledge of Vedanta, spiritual practices and service to society, resulting in a happy world around them.

Mission Statement: To provide to individuals from any background, the wisdom of Vedanta and the practical means for spiritual growth and happiness, enabling them to become positive contributors to society.

The Chinmaya Mission® was established in India by the devotees of Swami Chinmayananda in 1953. Today, the Mission stands strong with over 300 centres encompassing a wide range of spiritual, educational, cultural, rural development and charitable activities (www.chinmayamission.com).

The worldwide head is Swami Tejomayananda, a direct disciple of Swami Chinmayananda. The Chinmaya Mission follows the Vedic teacher-student tradition (Guru-shishya Parampara) and makes accessible the ageless wisdom of Advaita Vedanta, the knowledge of universal oneness, through various grass-root activities that include the very young, the youth, the householder, the executive and the elder. The numbers of people who have benefitted from this vision and mission cannot be estimated.
