BMI Chart


The sound symbol stands for what Religion calls God, what philosophy declares as TRUTH or as REALITY.


Vasanas, the channel of thoughts created by our past actions and thoughts, which determine the contours of our present inner personality of thought and outer behaviour.


The body, mind and intellect - these are the three equipments through which LIFE expresses out in the universe.


Perceiver, feeler, thinker - this is the sense of individuality in each one of us: "I the ego", is the sole experiencer in me.


The world of objects, the field of emotions and the realm of thought. O-E- T - constitutes the world of things and beings which in totality provides our field of experience.


Chinmaya Mission Pledge

We stand as one family

Bound to each other with love and respect.

We serve as an army

Courageous and disciplined

Ever ready to fight against all low tendencies

And false values, within and without us.

We live honestly

The noble life of sacrifice and service

Producing more than what we consume

And giving more than what we take.

We seek the Lord's grace

To keep us on the path of virtue, courage and wisdom.

May Thy grace and blessings flow through us

To the world around us.

We believe that the service of our country

Is the service of the Lord of lords

And devotion to the people

Is the devotion to the Supreme Self.

We know our responsibilities

Give us the ability and courage to fulfill them.
