A mission that
drives us every day
Chinmaya Mission Ottawa is part of a worldwide Chinmaya Mission organization founded by devotees of Swami Chinmayananda in 1953. The objective of our organization is to enable individuals of any background to become positive contributors to society by providing them with the wisdom of Vedanta and practical means for spiritual growth and happiness,
Spreading the knowledge of Advaita Vedanta, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and other ancient Hindu scriptures.
The life of Swami Chinmayananda was one of extraordinary spiritual strength, immeasurable love and tireless service. In less than half a century, he has left behind a worldwide organisation, hundreds of institutions, and millions of devotees. This was all aimed at a single theme, discovering the Eternal within.
