We can all recall the uncertainty of the early days of the coronavirus challenge with vivid clarity.

And yet.

Amidst tremendous challenge, emerged extraordinary opportunity. We are moved to share that since April 2020, our CommUnity has come together to raise $422,387 for diverse causes. 🙏🏾

Even as many of our own lives were irrevocably changed, this CommUnity responded to the clarion call of the moment without hesitation. "I am, because of you," is the silent message of our actions. We have extended our hands and expanded our hearts. We have held each other in grief and in Joy. We have refused to leave anyone behind. ❤️

However, our work is not done: We aspire to reach $500,000 by Vijaya Dashami this October. 💪🏾

A virus distanced... A Vision United...
Are you ready for what's next?

As we slowly emerge from the chrysalis of pandemic, navigating the terrain of day-to-day living still feels uncertain. How do we face these ethical quandaries at school? At home? At the grocery store? 🤔

While the answers aren't straightforward, the qualities needed to face our questions with enthusiasm and integrity are clearly outlined in our scriptures! 📖 For this reason, seekers across the country will be gathering virtually to learn at the feet of two individuals who embody these Ideal characteristics -- Pujya Swami Tejomayananda and Pujya Swami Swaroopananda. 🙏🏾

With dynamic sessions for CHYKs and CSKs led by Vivekji to dive into the depths of our discourses, as well as programs for ALL ages, this year's Mahasamadhi Family Camp is an unmissable opportunity. ❤️

📆 July 29 - August 3

The extroverted equipment (body-mind-intellect-ego) are ever-identifying with possessions, positions, and pleasures in an endless search for lasting peace. 🤳🏻

Realizing the futility of this search, 300 extraordinary seekers (from 2014-2021) have chosen SILENCE to evolve from being extroverted (dependently joyous) to being introverted (independently joyous). 🧘🏽‍♀️

Join Vivekji for the next chapter of this story as He systematically guides 40 more seekers from their ever-changing equipment to the unchanging Self. 🕉️

What could be more meaningful than waking up each morning to *hear* the teachings of Bhagavan Krishna on the battlefield?
To *listen* with a calm body, quiet mind, and still intellect such that the teachings are internalized...
For this reason, from May 31, Meaningful Mornings will recommence and this time, following 30 minutes of relaxation from 07.15a-07.45a ET. Details and NEW Zoom code below.
7:15a-7.45a (relaxation), 7:45a - 8:00a ET (inspiration)

E-Balavihar Summer Camp on Tulasi Ramayana

Dates and Duration: Monday, June 14 2021 - Friday, July 30 2021 (7 Weeks)

Total of 34 days (no class on Friday July 2nd for July 4th long weekend) 

2 days of unique activities: 

Wednesday June 30th is Pujya Guruji’s birthday  

Friday July 23rd is Shri Guru Poornima.

Vision of this camp:

To inculcate in children love of God and goodness, in the youth to tickle their intellect and usher it the direction of Dharma, and in young adults to inculcate faith and trust in themselves and humanity via the platform of Śrī Tulasi Rāmāyaṇa (Śrī Rāmacaritamānasa) 

Right now, we are living in uncertain times and a lack of certainty can leave our Youth feeling conflicted and confused. 🤔 To rise above this chaos and grow into clarity, conviction, and confidence, what is most needed for our Youth? Role models with whom they can relate to. 🌱

Luckily, Shri Tulasidasji was a long-term Thinker and through His Devotion has illustrated the most ideal role models for our Youth to relate to. 🏹 In Hanumanji, we learn devotion. In Shri Lakshmana, we learn loyalty. In Mother Sita, we learn strength, and in Bhagavan Rama, we learn choice-less cheer. 🕊

Chinmaya Mission West is pleased to announce this summer’s E-Balavihar Camp from June 14-July 30! 🌻 Trained Teachers will conduct fun and energizing sessions for youth across elementary, middle, high school, and Chinmaya Yuva Kendra, including our own Vivekji, who will be teaching Grade 6! 🌟
