We follow the Vedic teacher-student tradition (guru-shishya parampara) through the philosophy of Advaita Vedanta. Vedanta, the essential core of Hinduism, is the universal science of life, relevant to people of all backgrounds and faiths. Vedanta inspires people to understand themselves better. Thus, although Chinmaya Mission is a Hindu organisation, it does not seek to convert other religious practitioners. As a spiritual movement that aims for inner growth, the mission offers a wide array of Vedanta study forums for all ages, promotes Indian classical art forms and operates numerous social service projects. Millions worldwide have benefited directly or indirectly from Chinmaya Mission’s numerous centres, ashrams, classes, events, services and projects.
We regularly host visiting Chinmaya Mission Acharyas (spiritual teachers) who share the wisdom of Vedanta at centres around the world. Please check out our Events calendar or subscribe to our newsletter for regular updates.
