Message from Central Chinmaya Mission Trust:
I am delighted to share the news that today the Government of India has officially communicated that Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayanandaji has been conferred the Padma Bhushan award.
The Padma Bhushan award is one of the most prestigious civilian National awards in India, recognising the recipients’ distinguished service of high order to the nation.
It is befitting that in the birth centenary year (2015-2016) of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji, His devoted disciple is being recognised through the conferring of this award. It is indeed recognition of the work of the entire organisation.
It is an occasion of great joy for the Chinmaya family as well as an opportunity to rededicate and resolve to take forward Pujya Gurudev’s work and message to more and more people.
In His Service,
Chief Operating Officer”

I thank the Government of India for bestowing on me the honour of Padma Bhushan.
In all humility I dedicate this Padma Bhushan award to my beloved mother, respected father, revered Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji, and the most worshipful God with whose grace and blessings alone this prestigious national recognition has been conferred on me.
I thank all my well-wishers who have been sending messages of congratulations to me with great love and regard.
With Prem & Om,
