About the Chinmaya Mission
This website was created for the Chinmaya mission in India. This mission is a movement aimed to achieve happiness through spirituality. It was claimed to be a movement to Eternity and a sacred journey to happiness. They followed the declaration of Advaita Vedanta about the logic of spirituality and the science of living. The basis of the movement and their main Vision is world harmony and universal happiness. This was also the basis of the Chinmaya Mission.
The movement had more than 300 centers across the world and more than 60 years of socio-spiritual service. They had a following of more than 350 monks & tens of thousands of volunteers. The motto of the movement was: “To give maximum happiness to maximum people for maximum time.”
They also had a youth wing called the Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK). The motto of this youth wing is: “harnessing youth potential through dynamic spirituality”. They aimed to achieve this by various innovative activities, programs, and projects customized to the needs and interests of the modern youth. In CHYK leaders were groomed and potentials were developed by studying and reflecting through the programs offered by the movement. This was so the young would follow the teachings not only in theory but also with their actions.
The purpose of CHYK was to enable each young person to connect with oneself and encourage one to learn through all these various ways and methods based on their temperament. They had a lot of activities to ensure that these groups of youngsters learn the way of the mission. The main goal of all these activities was to let the youth absorb the message of the Rishis. Tuning to their inner silence, and exploring life, playing their roles well, and always looking at the bigger picture.
About the founders of transformingindians.org
There were two most renowned leaders of the movement. Swami Tejomayananda and Swami Chinmayananda. They promoted this movement to help India become a better place for its residents by transforming the mindsets of the people first.
Swami Chinmayananda was the founder of this movement. He was born on May 8, 1916, in Kerala, India, and had degrees in Law and English Literature before helping with freeing India from the British colony. His nationalist activities led him to become imprisoned but once he was out of prison, he worked for a newspaper company called The National Herald. On February 25, 1949, Swami Chinmayananda was introduced into sannyasa by Swami Sivananda, who named him ‘Swami Chinmayananda Saraswati’. The meaning of the name Chinmayananda was ‘filled with the bliss of pure Consciousness.
Swami Tejomayananda was born on June 30, 1950, in Madhya Pradesh, India. He was not spiritually inclined when he was younger. At the age of 20, a year away from getting his Master’s degree in Physics, he moved to pursue a teaching career. The change in him came about the day when he was attracted to a large banner announcing Swami Chinmayananda’s talks on Srimad Bhagavad Gita. This inspired him to seek the permission of his mother to join the Chinmaya Mission’s residential Vedanta course at Sandeepany Sadhanalaya in Mumbai. On October 21, 1983, he was introduced into sannyasa by Swami Chinmayananda, giving him the name, Swami Tejomayananda. In 1989, He was assigned to Chinmaya Mission’s U.S. Centre in San Jose, California, where he worked as acharya until 1993. After that, he became the Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide.
