Our Masters

Swami Tapovanam

Tapovan Maharaj

He alone sees truly, who sees the eternal, unattacched, pure, wise and free Self in every creature and everything.

When all activities of the mind cease, what shines by itself is the Truth.

Swami Chinmayananda

Pujya Gurudev

Serve all. Give all. Take nothing for yourself. Reduce your demands. Learn to live on a bare minimum. Be in the world, but not of it. Keep your freedom and be ever detached.

 Swami Tejomayananda

Pujya Guruji

When our minds are purified through selfless action and made single pointed through worship we cannot remain satisfied with the small achievements in worldly life.

Who we are..

Dakshinamurti with Velli KavachamChinmaya Mission is a Global Spiritual Organisation, where people come together to learn - The Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and other texts of Advaita Vedanta. The Vision of Reality and the philosophy of life gained through this study of the scriptures is the primary focus in and through all our activities. And this actually is the springboard for the great Hindu way of life.

Chinmaya Meenakshi at Madurai serves as a centre of learning and was established in the year 2003 with the consecration of Lord Dakshinamurti.

From the Scriptures

न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते।|

There is no better purifier than knowledge.

Bhagavad Gita 4.38

आत्मना विन्दते वीर्यं विद्यया अमृतम् अश्नुते।|

One obtains strength from oneself and obtains immortality through knowledge.

Kena Upanishad 2.4

ஓதுமின் கேண்மின் உணர்மின் உணர்ந்தபின் ஓதி உணர்ந்தவர் ஓங்கி நின்றாரே!

Study, listen, assimilate. Those who have studied and understood thereafter rose very high.
