What is the Chinmaya Mission?
The Chinmaya Mission began in 1953 with the lessons of Swami Chinmayananda. Teaching the Hindu principles of Vedanta, Chinmayananda encouraged his followers to seek spiritual fulfillment and provide service to others in their communities. His legacy lives on in the form of the Chinmaya Mission, which has expanded to include more than 300 centers throughout the world.
