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 am so grateful for the last 8 years in this program and will miss it dearly. The lessons of Balavihar have shaped who I am and how I interact with others, teaching me respect, empathy, compassion and so much more. It has guided and supported me through personal experiences I have been through. I really have to thank the Mission for creating such an open and safe space for teaching these topics.Teenager
My five years at Chinmaya Mission have taught me to recognise and comprehend both positive and negative circumstances in life, helping me to grow and prosper not only in scripture knowledge but also as a person. Chinmaya Mission’s events have helped me open up by expressing my perspective and gaining self-confidence.Teenager
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
In today’s world of distractions, CHYK class has been my anchor. I’ll forever be grateful for all the learnings, values and people I’ve met through CHYK as this has all been instrumental in inspiring the direction of my life.Youth
As a University student many of the classes dive deeper into Hindu culture with texts which are easier to read and digest. The Chinmaya Mission has found unique and innovative ways to link Hindu scriptures and made it easy for all ages to understand and appreciate the lessons told.Youth
