Swami Chinmayananda, a great visionary and sage of modern times, worked tirelessly to spread the knowledge of Vedanta. He established the Gurukulas, called ‘Sandeepany’, to ensure that the lineage of the teacher and taught remains unbroken and the Knowledge is ever kept live for all seekers. It is in the Sandeepany that the Acharyas of the Chinmaya Mission are bestowed the in depth scriptural knowledge, which they in turn share with the society.

Sandeepany is run exclusively on donations from generous devotees and philanthropists. All of us can be a part of this great cause. Offer your contributions according to your ability to the Rishi Putra scheme (sponsorship for the training of one or more Acharyas). Let this be one of the small ways we pay our gratitude to Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda.
