Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth (Chinmaya University) has received an in-principle approval on June 8, 2016 from Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, for establishing the deemed university for Sanskrit and Indic Traditions. Due to a change in the regulations for establishment of deemed universities that occurred subsequently, we are now in the process of establishing 5 departments in our main campus at Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula, Veliyanad, Kochi. These departments, encompassing a bridge between Ancient Indian knowledge traditions and their application in current day knowledge fields, will be established in the next few months and the University plans to commence its degree granting academic programmes from academic year 2017-18. In this year 2016-17, the University will begin a few Certificate Programmes in its twin campuses at Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula, Kochi and Chinmaya Naada Bindu Gurukula, Pune.

    Revered Pujya Swamiji,

    Hari Om. I submit my humble pranams. For nearly 50 years I am a humble follower Pujyasri Chinmayanandaji and Advaita Philosophy. All my background had been Sanskrit, Indian Philosophy and Indian Culture. I am currently working as the Vice Chancellor of Jagadguru Kripalu University, Odisha. I also worked as the VC of Sri Sri University for two years. Earlier to that I was working as Professor of Sanskrit and Principal of Vivekananda College, Chennai. I humbly request you Swamiji to visit my website at and bless me. My latest books will give an idea of how closely I am connected with the ideologies of Chinnmaya University. 1. Management Mantras -connecting ancient Indian thoughts with modern management concepts. 2. Sanskrit Drama – Origin and development 3. Dance Drama in theory and practice 4. The Ritual traditions of India 5. Yogasutra with a new look commentary. I hold M.A. Ph.D. in Sanskrit, M.B.A. M.Phil, M.A. Philosophy, M.Sc. Psychology and several degrees and diplomas. It will be my privilege to associate myself with Chinmaya University, may be as Pro Vice Chancellor.
    with humble pranams,

    Dear Sir,

    I am a retired Senior Principal Scientist from CSIR – National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology (NIIST), Thiruvananthapuram.
    I have qualified the ‘Kovida’ level (First class) in the correspondence course offered by Vishwa Samskrita Pratishtan, Kodungallor, nearing completion of the ‘Gita through Sanskrit course at Thiruvananthapuram. I am interested to join an advanced degree course in Sanskrit at Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula, Veliyanad, Kochi in the academic year 2017-18. Kindly send me details on the same and let me know when I should apply.

    Thanking you,
