Swami Chinmayananda, known the world over as Gurudev, walked, talked, and lived Vedanta. Many called him a living Scripture. This books offers a glimpse into Gurudev’s spiritual vision, his teachings, and the vast legacy he left behind – the worldwide organization called Chinmaya Mission, through which the priceless knowledge of Vedanta is being taught. The first part of this book presents Gurudev’s teachings of Vedanta in an engaging narrative as seen through the eyes of a seeker named Maya.
Then we take a close look at the Sandeepany Sadhanalayas, the premier Institutes of Vedanta that Gurudev established for in-depth teaching of Vedanta. They are now considered to be one of his greatest contributions to the world of spiritulity. Personal stories of Sandeepany students abound, giving insight into the inspiring journeys of many who studied there. After that, we are taken on a tour through some of the many Chinmaya temples and altars around the globe. The book ends with a look at the future vision of Chinmaya Mission.
A true Guru’s words live on, far beyond the time he spent in embodied form. Swami Chinmayananda is destined to remain a living scripture for untold generations to come.
