Core values



The personal quest that leads the individual to an appreciation of a higher Reality.

The philosophy of Vedanta and the wisdom of the saints have always guided humanity to this larger vision of life. Students will be encouraged to listen, read, and reflect upon such body of spiritual literature that is conducive to their inner refinement and self-unfoldment. All academics offered at the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth will therefore be aligned to encourage such a quest.



Communicating the wisdom of Indian knowledge systems through their source texts.

This will go a long way in nourishing ancient Indian knowledge traditions and creating living repositories who will in their turn nurture the tradition for the future. Knowledge of Sanskrit will be a key enabler for the study of original sources.



Relevance of the ancient to blend with the needs of a modern age.

While maintaining the highest degree of academic rigour, the University will specifically provide for courses and ideas and topics that will lead the student to finding a respectable living through gainful employment.



Sparking the intellect of the modern youth through conceptual and strategic innovation.

The University aims to transfer the wealth of many thousands of years through innovative pedagogy, teaching methodologies, content and nature of the programmes. The University will strive to be progressive, while retaining the continuity of current best practices.

Article #12, Title : Kyal-gayakicha Ras-grahan (Appreciation of Khayal Singing) was published on November 23, 2018

Gist : A Raga is unfolded in Khayal singing. This article gives a step by step development of Raga as followed in Khayal singing style. Different 'Angas' like Aalap, Bol-Aalap, Laykari, Taan, Bol-Taan, Bol-Baant etc are used to beautify Khayal rendition. When a listener knows the structure, he can get maximum joy of the performance. A raga rendition of each artist will be different, also same artist will present it differently since it is a spontaneous and impromptu rendition. That is the reason it is alive and 'happening' as compared to other music systems in the world.

Chair - Prof. B.V. Venkataramana, Karnataka Sanskrit University, Bengaluru

1. Mridula Aswin - Agreement and Conflict between Vyakarana & Nyaya: a study of Abhava in the light of Vakyapadiyam
The idea of negation is seen across various darsanas. The speaker briefly explained the theories of Nayyayikas, Vedantins, and others, which have seemingly opposing thoughts, and showed that they are formed on the same constructs. Abhava is translated to non existence or the property of non-negation, i.e. existence itself. The speaker described the different types of non-existence, with examples, and concluded with all the views of the different darsanas on abhava.

2. Sanjeev Panchal - च शब्दयुक्तवाक्यविश्लेषणम्

The speaker began by defining “vakya visleshanam” which refers to words and their coordinations and relations. He spoke about 3 sandehas or doubts that arise in this regard. By giving the famous example of “Alfred and Bernard fall” that modern western scholars use, he presented their views of coordination. He showed how different systems interpret this sentence using dependency tress and sequence structures. He also discussed the Indian standpoint in Vyakarana Sastra and concluded his paper by giving the different prayojanas of “ca” shabda.

3. Wimalakhanthi, Bhiksu University of Sri Lanka - South India and Sri Lanka: How Sanskrit Inscriptions of Sri Lanka Reveal Relationship between South India and Sri Lanka

The speaker's aim was to reveal the ancient relationship between South India and Sri Lanka through Sanskrit inscriptions. His discussion began with the explanation of the excavation of a citadel in alAniradhapura which exposed the tradition of writing in Lanka 2600 years ago. Providing several examples of Brahmi letters on potteries, he showed how well Brahmi was established in the Asokan era and how the tradition of writing was introduced by Indians to Sri Lanka before the Asokan era. He showed how the Sri Lankan epigraphs of the early Brahmi stage are similar to Magadhi Prakrit, and not to Prakrit of Sanskrit, which indicates no North Indian influence. He posited that the analysis of these inscriptions and engravings shows that kings paid respect to and protected both Buddhism and Hinduism in Lanka. These palaeographical similarities prove a direct relationship between India and Sri Lanka.

Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth

The inaugural session of the NFSI 2018 'Sastra and Discipline: Towards a Meaningful Dialogue' featured a number of eminent speakers, who shared inspirational ideas in an engaging manner.

Prof. P. N. Shastri, Vice-Chancellor of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, New Delhi, spoke about shastras being created for protecting the knowledge of the Vedas. He also quoted from the Rg-veda saying that the gods favour the hard working, thus giving a key maxim for success in today's age

Prof. Rajaram Shukla, Vice-Chancellor of the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, Varanasi, gave a talk on shastras and their purpose. He said that there are certain criteria for determining what a shastra is. But due to conflicting situations, new methods of interpretation of shastras need to constantly be developed. It is only then that shastras can continue to have a living presence in today's world.

Prof. Dharmarajan, Vice-Chancellor of the Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady, spoke about the importance of the Sanskrit language. He said that although we seem to value only technological knowledge today, all such knowledge is also available through Sanskrit.

Swami Advayananda, President, Executive Council, CVV, spoke about the need for ancient traditions and modern knowledge systems to become united into one system. The present should not ignore its foundation, and the past should not be thought irrelevant.

Prof. Gauri Mahulikar (Vice-Chancellor and Dean, CVV), Dr. Apparao Mukkamala (Managing Trustee, CVV), and Shri N M Sundar also addressed the gathering. This was an auspicious and appropriate beginning to the conference, which aims to discuss pressing issues related to shastra as a knowledge-discipline, in the context of Sanskrit and Indic Knowledge.
