Friday, July 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us this Friday 12th July for a special evening satsang with Swami Mitrananda. 7-8:30pm at Chinmaya Kirti in Hendon.
Swami Mitrananda is a direct disciple of Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda. He is the spiritual mentor of Chinmaya Mission Chennai and directs the management of the centres, temples, ashrams and schools there.
Swamiji is a trustee of the newly formed Chinmaya University, an institute for higher education and a centre of excellence for research of Indic studies. Up until recently Swami Mitrananda was the director of All India Chinmaya Yuva Kendra – the youth wing of Chinmaya Mission across India. But they wouldn’t let him go so easily and Swamiji now acts as the All India CHYK’s national advisor.
A dynamic force in all fields, Swamiji concieved and executed the Youth Empowerment Programme and through it he has trained more than 500 youngsters worldwide and given them the opportunity to serve society for a year and in some cases this service has become their life’s work. Our resident bramacharini, Sripriyaji, went through the YE Programme in 2014, just a year before she joined the Vedanta course. Swamiji also initiated CIM (Chinmaya Institute of Management), Chennai Chapter which is reaching out to colleges and corporate organisations with a blend of Management and Spirituality.
A highly sought-after speaker, Swami Mitrananda regularly lectures on Upanishads, Geeta and many other traditional texts. He travels across the world to spread the message of Hinduism and Vedanta. He has delivered management related talks in various leading corporate houses of India such as Hyundai Motors, Polaris Industries, TVS Group etc. and has also addressed students of leading business schools in India such as Symbiosis Institute of Management. He represented India at the Global Forum of Faith-based Organisations for Population and Development organised by UNFPA in Turkey in October 2008.
