Founder – Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth
Welcome to the maternal home of Ādi Śaṅkarācārya, the great Spiritual General, and the torch-bearer of the renaissance of reason and logic. It is fitting that this is the home of the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth.
Here, set amidst God’s Own Country, scholars and Swamis have mingled for several years undertaking research, and organizing workshops focused on Sanskrit, Vedanta, Yoga and other allied fields.
When you come here as a student, you get enchanted by the beauty even as you become part of a caring family.
This campus is named in honour of a long-term devotee, member and patron of the global Chinmaya Mission, the late Shri G.V. Eswar.
Academic programmes at Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula
Few will doubt the antiquity and importance of Sanskrit. Fewer still will doubt that the language has a breadth and depth of literature, both secular and spiritual, unmatched by any other extant language. Also, none will dispute the value of the knowledge available. Therefore, not surprisingly, there are many young Indians keen to get acquainted with their heritage, and to understand what role it can play in solving some of today’s vexing problems. There is a widespread understanding internationally that Ancient Indian Knowledge Traditions such as linguistics, mathematics, arts and yoga have global applicability. However, the available educational systems are not geared to reach this in a meaningful way to students. Chinmaya University (CU) seeks to address this unfulfilled need through its educational programmes.
Our goal at CU is to help restore pride and confidence among youngsters and make them knowledgeable citizens by providing them with a sound understanding of Ancient Indian Knowledge traditions, along with modern subjects, and their practical applications. We visualize a CU graduate who is self-confident, proud of his/her legacy and passionate, who will be ready to contribute to nation building by taking useful roles in multiple sectors of the economy ranging from education to business.
Why should you consider the CU Programmes?
CU programmes are not driven merely by the goal of seeking jobs. In addition to making our graduates employable, we are also keen to make them follow their passion and heartfelt desires. Our belief is that only such an education can make a person successful in the long run. If you have any of these long-pending aspirations in you, CU programmes are tailored for you:
Unique positioning of the programmes
The available educational programmes belong to two extremes:
The programmes offered at CU are unique in closing this gap. Every student who goes through the programmes will be equipped with skills in modern streams while rooted in traditional systems of knowledge. The programmes will develop in the students a sound understanding of Sanskrit, Ancient Indian Knowledge and their contemporary application potential. Armed with this valuable knowledge he/she will be exposed to some of the modern day subjects in the areas of psychology/sociology, computer applications, communication, environment, business, government and society. This ensures that the students are fully developed, confident and proud of their own heritage and knowledge systems. Moreover they will be able to face the demands of the modern day work.
Our programmes are driven by our core values and vision: spirituality, purity, practicality and innovation. We believe that our students will be greatly benefited by these aspects.
The Path ahead for a CU Graduate
The inputs provided through the programmes are carefully chosen and delicately balanced to enable a broader set of options for the student. A graduate of CU will have multiple options to pursue in his/her life:
