The Bhagavad Geeta
Swami Chinmayananda breathed, lived and talked Bhagavad Geeta throughout His life. He carried the message of the Geeta to kindle the knowledge of the Self in millions worldwide! For that reason Srimad Bhagavad Geeta is the heart of Chinmaya Mission.
The Bhagavad Geeta is a manual for living, a book of direct experience. It Instructs on how to live a productive life, attaining fulfillment here and now.

Why Chant Geeta?
From the recitation of the Bhagavad Geeta arises the desire to know its meaning. Thence arises the Knowledge (of the Self). From this Knowledge arises fulfillment.
The study of the Geeta is the key to opening the vast treasure of God’s love for us. It starts with chanting, then study, and over time, assimilating (embracing) that same love wholeheartedly and completely.
Geeta Chanting allows one to begin this journey here and now, and opening themselves to the embrace of the infinite love.
Geeta Chanting Competition
Swami Dheerananda nurtured our Geeta Chanting Program from its initial beginning as a small competitive event with love and care. Geeta Chanting has now been institutionalized into Children Summer Camp curriculum and Weekly Bala Vihar Common Time agenda. As our Geeta Teacher, Swamiji has expanded participation categories to include reading and comprehension, to invite greater adult participation.
In keeping with His Guru’s mission, Swamiji is sowing the seed of Geeta Jnana in every CMWRC member, and through chanting and comprehension, making each of us more and more conscious of the knowledge of the Self.
