Hindi Vedanta Course in Sidhbari commencing May 2021

Dear All, Hari Om!

The Sandeepany Sadhanalayas or Vedanta Gurukulas of Chinmaya Mission are Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s greatest gift to the world. It is in their halls of learning that the transfer of the subtlest and most divine Knowledge takes place. The respect that Chinmaya Mission commands today is an expression of Pujya Gurudev’s vision and the work of the alumni from these institutions.

In keeping with this tradition of learning, Sandeepany Himalayas, Sidhbari, will inaugurate the 13th batch of the Vedanta Course in Hindi, on 8 May 2021, Pujya Gurudev’s Jayanti. Swami Avyayananda will be the Acharya of the Course. Over the years, the generous donations of well-wishers have enabled the legacy of the Vedanta Courses to grow in numbers and stature. Members can partake of the blessings of this rich heritage by contributing to the Rishi Putra Scheme. The sponsorship can be for the training of one or more brahmacharins, and part sponsorships are also welcome.

For all available seva options as part of the Rishi Putra Scheme, please contact:
