The Mission

Chinmaya Mission follows the guru-shishya parampara and makes available the ageless wisdom of Advaita Vedanta, the knowledge of Universal Oneness, to one and all. It is the universal science of life, urging seekers of all faiths, to understand their own belief system better. Chinmaya Mission is a Hindu organization that does not seek to convert and is focused on being a spiritual movement that aims for the inner growth of the individual.

 

 

The Founder

Swami Chinmayananda was a spiritual giant who walked this earth. Brilliant and erudite, his early years were full of questions that found answers in the form of his gurus, Swami Tapovan Maharaj and Swami Sivananda. Soon, with his unique mastery over India’s ancient scriptures and with unparalleled wisdom and wit he too guided thousands in seeking the ultimate Truth. The master wrote books, gave discourses and made available the knowledge of Advaita Vedanta to all.

The Visionary

Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda is the epitome of devotion. His very demeanor bears his surrender to his Guru and Lord. As the worldwide head of the Chinmaya family he continues to follow the trajectory of his guru's grand spiritual and organizational vision. He has pushed forward the teachings of Vedanta through discourses and writings, always reflecting intellectual clarity and humor. Forward thinking, Guruji has established value-based schools with the aim of nurturing stellar citizens of tomorrow; built a grand center to enshrine and promote India’s performing arts; focused on research and study of India’s ancient spiritual heritage so all can avail of it. India, in 2016, recognized his contributions to the spiritual world with the Padma Bhushan. His introduction in the Life of 'I' - On The Sadhana Trail is the inspiration that has unfolded as the book.
