Chinmaya Mission in Sydney has been running activities since 1979. Our Chinmaya Sannidhi ashram was established in Castle Hill in 2004. Since then it has been home to a multitude of classes run for all ages. Classes include Shishuvihar, Balavihar, Junior CHYK(Chinmaya Yuva Kendra) , CHYK, devi groups and adult study groups. After its brand new renovations in 2015 and inauguration by Swami Tejomayananda in the same year, Chinmaya Sannidhi is fully equipped as a community facility in New South Wales and is continuing to run retreats, workshops, festivals and other public events.


Each week starting from 12th July, we will be providing online lessons for those who are not able to go to school due to the COVID restrictions. Each lesson will be for 30 minutes. Please follow the instructions in the Lesson.

Every week we conduct spiritual and well-being classes for Children, Teenagers, Youth and Parents / Adults and are held throughout Sydney and in the Chinmaya Sannidhi Ashram. All our classes are supported and guided by our resident spiritual teacher Swami Shrikaranandaji.

This program is designed so that the entire family can benefit by learning and praying together. The classes focus on developing positive values and are based on ancient texts (Bhagavad Geeta, Upanishads) and epics (Ramayana and Mahabharata). Chinmaya Mission has designed a specific curriculum for each of the different age groups. All students learn chanting and meditation.

Chinmaya Mission Australia runs many classes for children. These include

  • Baby Shishu Vihar (ages 0 to 2)
  • Shishu Vihar (ages 2 to 5)
  • Balavihar (school years KG to Year 6)
  • Junior CHYK (Year 7 to 12).
  • CHYK (Age 18 – 35yrs))
  • Adult/Parents Classes
  • Seniors

Some of our classes are also run as part of our Chinmaya Mission Family Program. We do this so that families can participate in their respective study classes at the same time. Our Youth and Adult classes are listed under the menu item study classes. Please find below the summary of the classes conducted as part of the Chinmaya Mission Family Program.

Every person tells the story differently and every time I find myself wide-eyed and learning something new. Chinmaya Mission
