CHINMAYA SWARANJALI – The Music wing of Chinmaya Mission
Swara to Ishwara

The origin of music lies in the very beginning of life itself! In the vast orchestra of Mother Nature, our great sages laid the foundations of our classical music. Great poet-saints elevated our music to the highest realms of devotion and purity and entered the realm of Life divine through music.Bhajans and kirtans expressing divine glories have the capacity to make us pause and experience a few moments of serenity and peace.
In fact, in Swami Chinmayananda’s words, “Music is an ornamentation of Silence” and should be used by seekers to experience the silence within, in our quest towards “Oneness” with our Divine Self.

About Swaranjali
Chinmaya Swaranjali, the music wing of the Chinmaya Mission, was formed by a group of musicians inspired by Swami Tejomayananda. Chinmaya Swaranjali is dedicated towards exploring the magical and wonderful world of devotional and classical music and also to spreading this joy and devotion. This group consisting of highly talented singers and musicians conduct several programmes, sharing the message of love and bhakti through their melodious and soulful music. Their unique audio visual music shows instill a sense of deep devotion in the minds of the listeners.Deeply touched and inspired by the teachings of Pujya Gurudev
H. H. Swami Chinmayananda, the members of the group do not look upon music as just an idle passion, but as a dynamic vehicle to seek the inner source of joy and divinity. They sing as a tribute to their Master and Guru, they sing to spread His message and they sing with their hearts soaked in His Love.San Jose Swaranjali has the privilege of taking part in 10 pujas in a year. They learn about 60-80 bhajans in praise of different deities each year. For the first time we are opening it for adults who are interested in learning bhajans. So if you or your child have some musical background or have the aptitude for music, please join in singing the glories of the lord.

Please note, however, that registration to just Swaranjali is not supported. Students have to be enrolled in and attend Bala Vihar/Yuva Kendra classes to be eligible to participate in Swaranjali. In other words, to register for Swaranjali, students must first register in Bala Vihar/Yuva Kendra classes and attend them.
