Our world is rapidly changing. 🌎 Between climate change, politics, and societal crises, it has been increasingly challenging to learn how to navigate the stress, anxiety, and dejection resulting from daily living. πŸŒ€ Remembering that the purpose of our lives is to be happy has been slipping away more easily!

It’s time for us to shift our sense of grounding to that which is unchanging. Our Weekly Courses and CommUnities are designed for this navigating and relating. Beginning in September, these offerings will serve as the anchor of Knowledge that we need to be courageous and connected amidst change. 😌

There is a Course and CommUnity systematically designed for every seeker, both seasoned and new. Register, today! βš“

A Mother's Love keeps on giving and giving...

The ungrateful's life keeps on taking and taking...

Our CommUnity IS Grateful and has expressed this feeling through Generosity, by raising over 100,000 dollars in under 100 days for our Universal Mother! πŸ’š

At some point in our lives, we might wonder... Is there more to living and life?

Some of us may also inquire... Who am I?

Through our sincere pursuit of such Truths, the Sadguru-shishya-parampara comes into our lives and compassionately reveals the answers to our deepest questions. In Vedantic tradition, such Guidance is given freely and such an experience is priceless.

Still, out of gratitude and fulfillment, the student seeks to give back. 🧑 Guru Dakshina is an opportunity for us to offer our gratitude for the dedication-sacrifice-expression of our Guides.

Please donate generously to support the causes of our Guru-shishya-parampara.

β€œLet your hands and legs function, but let a part of your mind steadily hold on to the idea of the divine essence in you,” said Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda.

The Running from the Mind Challenge, organized by Chinmaya Mission Niagara, invites seekers with ALL levels of experience to quiet their minds through long distance running/walking. πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ


"The deeper you go into the ocean, there is less noise, less waves. The higher you go into the sky, there is less turbulence, quietness. In order to go high, you must go deep."

Contentment is our very nature and yet, living at the surface makes us forget this. 🌊 In an effort to dismantle forgetfulness and nurture remembrance, our CommUnity is taking the sankalpa to be deeper from Apr 9 (Rama Jayanti) to Oct 5 (Rama Jaya). Together, let us yearn daily, to be our deepest...


There is immense suffering in Ukraine. We can help in some small measure by supporting the efforts to provide hot meals, bread, and fruits to refugees in Hungary.

Let us come together to help those in need however we can. πŸ•ŠοΈ

In 2020, through our inaugural Elevate HERstory campaign, our CommUnity generously raised $33,003 for 3 women's shelters in Niagara... triple our initial aspiration! πŸŽ‰

This year, we're aiming even higher: We hope to raise $40,001 for comprehensive women's livelihood, literacy, and empowerment programs at Chinmaya Organization for Rural Development (CORD) Sidhbari. πŸ“š

Your support enriches CORD Sidhbari's ongoing programs at the forefront of participatory sustainable development, contributing to more than two decades of work that has changed the lives of thousands across rural Himachal Pradesh. πŸ™πŸ½

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. πŸ™πŸΎ

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. πŸ’ͺ🏾

A virus distanced... A Vision United...
