Chinmaya Mission is engaged in the dissemination of Vedanta, an ancient philosophy of India, which teaches the art of living happily under all circumstances, in all places and at all moments. Chinmaya Mission offers a unique Study programme for all ages and stages of life.
By attending these classes and associating with like-minded people keeps me divine centred. Swamiji’s classes are captivating, with his ability to bring down the message of Gita and Upanishads to modern context through eloquent explanations and examples. Participating regularly in discussion classes has helped me become more reflective and intuitive.Adult
My triplets, Aadhi, Ram and Meera have been attending shishuvihar sessions for over a year now. They love the bhajans, stories and games from SV and talk about them / sing the songs through the week. I would recommend SV to any parent who wants to sow the seeds of spirituality and Hindu culture at an early age in their children’s lives.Adult
Surrounded by some of my now closest friends; our discussions, readings, and reflections are an anchor and source of growth – something I first only truly realised in my tougher moments. Developing devotion and learning about Vedanta has helped me understand my mind, manage my anxieties, and even try meditation!Youth

I like Chinmaya Mission classes because they teach children about Indian culture as well as good habits that we can pass on into the future. I enjoy the stories of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Chinmaya Mission has taught me to become a better person in the future and has taught me more about the richness of my culture. I am so lucky to have a community like this because I have now understood my culture better than I used to.Child
I have been a part of Chinmaya Mission for the past 4 years. I really love coming to Chinmaya Mission every week and learning a lot about spirituality and Hinduism. These classes have been something that I look forward to, as I find learning about the different methods to keep your spiritual health extremely fascinating. Chinmaya Mission’s classes have given me so many new opportunities like volunteering, organising, hosting different events and programs.Teenager
I came to Chinmaya Mission hoping to master my mind and conquer my external challenges in the shapes of study, work and friends. What I have found is peace of mind and love for the family-like community and extraordinary teachers. With their support and guidance, I better understand my mind and am on a journey towards that state of fearlessness and unconditional happinessYouth
Chyk Class has been an amazing way to spend time learning about spirituality with like-minded people who are all so supportive of each other. Everyone I have met during Chyk Classes and global Chyk camps has been so lovely and the sense of community definitely shines through in all our classes and activities. I truly cherish being a part of this family!Youth
Chinmaya Mission was established in India in 1953 by devotees of His Holiness Swami Chinmayananda. His life journey from a skeptic of religion, to a spiritual seeker, to a supreme master of Vedanta is an inspiration in itself.
