Chinmaya Sandeepany 10th Anniversary Celebrations

जयतु जयतु केन्द्रस्सर्वदा चिन्मयाख्यः
भवतु भवतु चात्र वेदवेदान्त बोधः
भजतु भजतु भक्त्या देवमादिं जना वै
वसतु वसतु लोके शोभनः कर्मयोगः
May this Chinmaya Mission center always shine victoriously.
May there be study and teaching of the Vedas and Vedanta here.
May all members worship God with devotion,
and may the beautiful spirit of karma yoga be in the hearts of all.
– Pujya Swami TejomayanandaJi

It is a great joy reminiscing the past decade filled with study, service and worship as we proudly commemorate the 10th anniversary of our beloved Chinmaya Sandeepany ashram. In June 2014, we moved into this sacred ashram, a place where devotees could come and seek the grace of Lord Jagadeeshwara, spiritual wisdom, and inner peace. Over the years, this space has etched several sweet memories for us through Bala Vihar, festivals, discourses, camps and pujas. Join us in celebrating the 10th anniversary of our new Chinmaya Sandeepany ashram from 2023-2024 by participating in yajnas in different locations by Swamins from Chinmaya Mission. The celebrations will conclude with auspicious rituals led by Pandit RavichandranJi in June 2024 and a grand finale yajna by Pujya Swami SwaroopanandaJi, Global Head, Chinmaya Mission, in August 2024.

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Chinmaya Mission San Jose Sandeepany Ashram, CMSJ is excited to welcome Swamins for a series of Jnana Yajnas at the various Bala Vihar locations! On-site childcare will be provided for all discourses. Details and sponsorship options are provided below.

About the Speaker

यस्य देवे परा भक्तिः यथा देवे तथा गुरौ | तस्यैते कथिता ह्यर्थाः प्रकाशन्ते महात्मनः |

प्रकाशन्ते महात्मन इति || श्वेताश्वतर उपनिषद् 6.23 ||

Swami Shantanandaji is well known for his unparalleled devotion to Lord Krishna and for his absolute devotion to his Guru, Swami Chinmayanandaji. Due to this unique qualification that Swamiji possesses, many devotees come to him from diverse backgrounds, cultures and geographies, and discover Self-knowledge through the study of major Upanishads, Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, Ramacharit Manas, and Narayaneeyam (to name a few).

Swamiji served his Guru as a traveling secretary for two years and became sannyasin in 1992.  True to his devotion to his Guru, Swamiji himself traveled extensively, taught near and far, and has devotees in every part of the world. As every devotee that has interacted with Swamiji knows, he is a member of everyone’s family, and everyone is a member of his Chinmaya family. Swamiji is an authority on the scriptures, yet remains unassuming and easily approachable as he connects with people across generations, languages, and faiths.

Swamiji was instrumental in building the Chinmaya Mission center in Hong Kong and many centers in the USA.  He is the current resident Swamiji at the Chinmaya Mission Tri-State Center. He is also also the president of Chinmaya Mission West and oversees the activities of over 60 Mission centers in the USA and Canada.
