Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s visit to Melbourne in the year 1981 saw the birth of Chinmaya Mission Melbourne. What started as a small study class at 4 Pioneer Drive, Templestowe has ultimately turned into what is now called Chinmaya Dham.
Chinmaya Mission Melbourne has grown ever since and today has 5 centres outside the ashram location, running regular weekly classes for all age groups. Chinmaya Mission Melbourne runs regular annual children holiday programs, teenage camps, youth workshops, adult classes and family retreats.
Chinmaya Mission Melbourne is blessed by resident Acharya Swami Aparokshananda who also visits Adelaide and Perth conducting various camps, workshops, retreats and giving discourses on a variety of topics based on Hindu Scriptures.
