Strengthen your Immune System, the Holistic Way

Fall is around the corner with cooler nights, windier days, and shorter daylight hours. It is a season of change from warm summers to cold winters. During this time our body too is changing as it tries hard to adjust to the changing atmosphere. That is why, according to Ayurveda, Fall is a time when our bodies become vulnerable with weakened immunity, making us more susceptible to disease and discomfort.

The good news is that with the right knowledge and simple practices, we can strengthen our body-mind complex by boosting our immune system in a holistic way. That means food, Mind, lifestyle, therapeutic breath yoga, and even music have a profound impact on our health.

The HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND day retreat is now open for registration where we will learn tools and techniques on how to build our immune system with five experts in their fields.

Registration: $60 per person. Includes vegetarian lunch and refreshments. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please note that in the registration process.
Seats are very limited. First come, first served.

Chinmaya Vishwa Vidyapeeth – The Crown Jewel of Chinmaya Mission

Puja Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda, was an enlightened master and a visionary. As part of His vision, Gurudev saw the need for a higher learning institution that integrated Indian knowledge systems with modern technology and educational approaches. In 2016, Chinmaya Vishwa Vidyapeeth (CVV) – the Chinmaya University, the crown jewel of Chinmaya Mission, was born. CVV is working to create values, share the vision of the Rsis, sculpt new leaders with knowledge of Indian heritage to selflessly serve society. This is the need of the hour. To support CVV, we will be joining the Mission’s global crowdfunding campaign. The Mission family will serve as Chinmaya Ambassadors and reach out to friends, colleagues, family members to help build awareness and raise funds for CVV. To learn more about the initiative, please see Pujya Swamiji, Swami Swaroopanandaji’s video.

We can, we must bring Gurudev’s vision to reality. Further details to follow.

Launch of ‘Guru Bhais’

On the blessed occasion of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s 28th Mahasamadhi day, Pujya Swami Swaroopananda released a wonderful new Chinmaya Archives module titled ‘Guru Bhais’. The link to the release is: https://youtu.be/m1oxDFT-snE When young Balakrishnan Menon joined Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh, he forged some strong bonds, made some long-lasting friends… Guru Bhais so to call them. One of his Guru Bhais is known by the world as Pujya Swami Chidananda Maharaj of Divine Life Society. Theirs was a divine connection; they were more like spiritual brothers, both disciples of Param Pujya Gurudev Swami Sivananda Maharaj.

To get an insight into the two great Masters and the deep bond they shared, view the module available at this link: http://archives.chinmayamission.com/gurudev/gurubhais
