In every age, it is observed that despite
scientific and material progress, man still feels insecure and incomplete, and happiness seems to be as elusive as ever.
This paradox was the subject of deep investigation by the Rishis (seers) of ancient India. Their conclusions, as
well as the sublime vision they arrived at, are enshrined in the immortal words of the Vedas and other Hindu scriptures.
Pujya Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda attained this supreme knowledge from the great Master Swami Tapovan Maharaj.
In early part of 20th century, the scriptures were the hidden treasure of selected
few. Gurudev took up the task of reaching this rich and subtle message to the common man through his discourses,
called the Jnana Yajnas. His talks were in simple language and
his thought-provoking humour and down to earth examples made the "difficult" philosophical concepts easy for all.
Chinmaya Mission was born in the year 1953. Today Chinmaya Mission is spreading the knowledge of Vedanta through
centres in India and around the world. Through Balavihars, Yuva Kendras, Study Groups and Devi groups, Mission addresses
the needs of the various sections of the society.
After the Mahasamadhi of Pujya Gurudev in 1993, Pujya Swami Tejomayanandaji took over the mantle of the Mission.
Under his leadership, Mission has expanded and is expanding further and further.
Chinmaya Mission, Karnataka is one of the most active centres of the Mission. Under the able guidance of
Pujya Swami Brahmanandaji, Chinmaya Mission activities have spread to various parts of the state.
We stand as one family
Bound to each other with love and respect.
We serve as an army
Courageous and disciplined
Ever ready to fight against all low tendencies
And false values,
within and without us.
We live honestly
The noble life of sacrifice and service
Producing more than what we
And giving more than what we take.
We seek the Lord's grace
To keep us
on the path of virtue, courage and wisdom.
May Thy Grace and Blessings flow through us
To the world around us.
We believe that
the service of our country
Is the service of the Lord of Lords
And devotion to the people
Is the devotion to the Supreme Self.
We know our responsibilities
Give us the ability and
courage to fulfill them.
