Swamins, Brahmacharins and Members of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide
I am pleased to share a report from Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF), Adi Sankara Nilayam, on the Deeksha ceremony and Valedictory function of the 3rd Malayalam Vedanta Course, which was held there on 2 October 2020.
The ceremony and function took place in the presence of Global Head of Chinmaya Mission, Pujya Swami Swaroopananda, Swami Viviktananda (Regional Head of Chinmaya Mission Kerala) and other Swamins, Brahmacharins and devotees of Chinmaya Mission.
Three student Brahmacharis were given Brahmachari Deeksha by Swami Swaroopananda:
|Old Name||New Name||Posting|
|Ramesh||Br. Shankara Chaitanya||CM Thiruvananthapuram|
|Raghu Ganesh||Br. Prahlad Chaitanya||CM Palakkad|
|Adarsh||Br. Vishnu Chaitanya||CM Chengannur|
Three student Brahmacharis will serve Chinmaya Mission in white clothes:
|Br. Sudheesh||CM Alappuzha|
|Br. Vinay||CM Taliparamba|
|Br. Sudhir||CM Tripunithura|
The programme included two benedictory addresses – the first by Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda in Sanskrit and the second by Swami Viviktananda. Swami Gabheerananda, Swami Aseshananda, Swami Satyananda and Swami Advayananda blessed the Brahmacharis with their words of wisdom, after which Shri T. M. Reghunandan (Trustee-Treasurer, CSTK) delivered the vote of thanks.
The event concluded with Shanti Path followed by recitation of the Chinmaya Mission Pledge.

Our best wishes to the Brahmacharis, who will continue to serve the noble vision of Pujya Gurudev, bringing joy, fulfillment and wisdom into the lives of those they touch by their selfless, dedicated seva.
With Prem & Om,
In His Service,
