Our Motto : To Give Maximum Happiness To Maximum People For Maximum Time


Our Mission : To provide to individuals from any background, the wisdom of Vedantic philosophy and the practical means for self-development and happiness, enabling them to become positive contributors to society.

Our Vision :  Inner transformation of individuals through knowledge of Vedanta, self-development, and service to society, resulting in a happy world around them.

Chinmaya Mission was established in India in 1953 by devotees of Swami Chinmayananda. Under his guidance, these devotees formed the nucleus of a spiritual renaissance movement that now encompasses a wide range of spiritual, educational, and charitable activities, ennobling the lives of thousands in India and outside its borders. Administered by Central Chinmaya Mission Trust in Mumbai, India, the Mission is now headed by His Holiness Swami Swaroopananda.


Following the Vedic teacher-taught tradition (guru-shishya parampara), Chinmaya Mission makes available the ageless wisdom of Vedanta, the knowledge of the one Reality, and provides the tools to realize that wisdom in one's life. "To give maximum happiness to the maximum number for the maximum time" is the tenet that drives Mission workers to uplift humanity beyond selfish and sectarian attitudes and activities. Each person's gain is manifold: personal growth, heightened efficiency, contentment, and the ability to live with others in peace and harmony.
