Raise the Roof: The 5,756 sqft built-up roof at 1088 Ogilvie Rd has reached the end of its service life and needs to be rehabilitated in some areas and replaced in others. Without these repairs, the cracks will continue to allow water to leak into the building.

We need your help to raise $200,000 to pay for these renovations. Learn more.

Other Ways to SUpport

Poonam Puja: Maa Saraswati represents knowledge. Worshiping her with humility brings the required purity in our mind for the supreme knowledge to flow into us and let spiritual wisdom take root in our hearts. Sponsoring your own Saraswati poonam pooja is one way for you and your family to connect with the Divine Mother.

You will get an opportunity to choose a sari and ornaments for devi for the month, perform Saraswati pooja, and aarti with your family. Email us to learn more:

Gurudakshina is the ancient Indian tradition of offering with reverence, something of value, to one’s ‘Guru’ or towards his/her cause in recognition of the invaluable knowledge imparted.

At Chinmaya Mission Ottawa, knowledge is available for all and at no charge. We appreciate any offerings to help us share the knowledge and love imparted by Guruji.
