Who We Are | Our Values

We aim for the inner transformation of individuals through knowledge of Vedanta, spiritual practices and service to society, resulting in a happy world around them.

Under the guidance of Swami Chinmayananda, in 1953 devotees formed the nucleus of a spiritual renaissance movement that now encompasses a wide range of spiritual, educational, and charitable activities, ennobling the lives of thousands in India and worldwide. Today, led by Current Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide Swami Tejomayananda, it is involved in:

Spreading the sublime knowledge of Vedanta 
Vedanta is the core of Hindu philosophy. In fact, it is a universal science of life. A science which is relevant to all people everywhere, whatever their faith. Chinmaya Mission's stated mission is: ‘to provide to individuals, from any background, the wisdom of Vedanta and the practical means for spiritual growth and happiness, enabling them to become positive contributors to society.’
Reinvigorating Indian culture
