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.

The popular misconception is that man is a body with a soul. That is not correct. The truth is that man is the soul in a body.

Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth

Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda is at #CVV to address the students and the staff. On August 6, during his interaction with the students, Pujya Guruji spoke about how a teacher and a taught meet! His talks had a deep impact on Shreeya, a First Year BA student. In her appreciation of the talks, this is what she writes:

Swami Tejomayananda is the former head of Chinmaya Mission world-wide but the people in the mission fondly address him as Guruji.

He is a man of many many talents , though he speaks many languages they all convey the same devotion to the Supreme Self. I have know Guruji from my Balavihar days. Attending his talks gave me peace of mind and clarity, also his jokes made learning more fun.

Today's session came to me as a blessing. Even though the session with him was brief today the knowledge he imparted was infinite. Guruji recited this verse from Taittiriya upanishad which goes:

आचार्यः पूर्वरूपम् । अन्तेवास्युत्तररूपम् । विद्या सन्धिः । प्रवचनं सन्धानम् । इत्यधिविद्यम् ।

Guruji explained that in Sanskrit when the अ ('uh') sound merges with ई ('e') sound to create a sandhi (conjoint) sound ए ('A'). Likewise the acharya or teacher (representing the previous, poorva letter), joins the student (antevaasi or living in the gurukul) merge together through the process of talking (teacher) and listening (student) results in the sandhi which is knowledge.

Guruji's words were a ray of light in the dark spectrum of education in which i have just started venturing into. His smile brought me peace and hope which was amiss these few days. May God shower blessings on us. I am keenly looking forward to seeing him again.

Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth

Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth started the second academic year in a unique way. Swami Sharadananda Sarasvati guided first and second year students in performing the auspicious Vidyarthi Homa. As part of this unique ceremony, all students all took 5 vows:

1) ‘शरीरमाद्यं खलु धर्म साधनम्’ इति नीति वाक्यम् अवधार्य श्रम-क्षम-नीरोग-शरीराय स्वास्थ्य...

I will take care of my health based on the Neeti statement that the body is the instrument for fulfilling my dharma

२) ‘छात्राणां- अध्ययनं तप:’ इति स्मृति वाक्यं अवधार्य...

I commit to regular and sincere study based on the Smriti vakya that for students study is considered the highest tapas.

३)’सत्यमेव जयते नानृतं सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयान:’ इति श्रुतिवाक्यम् अवधार्य...

I will strive to be truthful in action, mind and words based on the “shruti” statement that truth alone leads to victory never untruth.

4) ‘स्वार्थो यस्य परार्थ एवम् स पुमानेक: सतां-अग्रणी:’ इति मनीषि वाक्य अवधार्य...

I strive to gain compassion and give up arrogance, meanness and other such selfish qualities, following the advice of the wise ones.

5) ‘संगच्छध्वं संवद्ध्वं सं वो मनांसि जानताम्’ इति श्रुति-आदेशम् अवधार्य...

I will strive to accomplish following the injunction of the “shruti”, social integration through seva.

What is human life without a goal? Prof. B. Mahadevanji (Chief Academic Advisor, @Chinmaya_VV) explains the difference between our goals as compared to the goals of our ancestors :… #CVV #ChinmayaVishwavidyapeeth #Goals #Ancestors

Unless we have a definite faith in the goal of our existence, and unless we believe, work for, and actually come to experience the goal positively as an existent factor, there is no hope of any plan becoming successful. —Swami Chinmayananda
