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.

प्रत्नानि नूत्नानि च शास्त्राणि – अर्थसार्थवाहाः संवादाः
(Śāstra and Discipline – Towards a meaningful dialogue)
‪17th to 19th December, 2018‬
Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth’s flagship conference, NFSI-2018, aims to explore the idea of a śāstra as a unit and a mode of disciplinary thought, and the intellectual apparatus and commitments that a śāstra entails. We also aim to understand the formation and practice of disciplinary traditions in all possible realms, as well as their expression today, which includes domains such as the translation and teaching of śāstras. NFSI-2018 thus invites participation from śāstric scholars, academicians and researchers interested in contributing to this discourse.

Within this context, the conference will touch upon the following themes -

· Building disciplinary identities and forging traditions of thought
· Cross-fertilization between śāstra-s
· Boundaries and margins – Pandits’ śāstra, commoners’ śāstra
· Śāstra in other languages – lost in translation, gained in translation
· Śāstrādhyayana – teaching and learning a śāstra in the digital age
· Past and present – the continued relevance of classical lore

Introducing 'पदामृतम्', a new #weekly series on #Sanskrit words and their meanings/ usage/ etymology and so on.

Our Professors often come across interesting words as they read the Sanskrit literature. पदामृतम् brings you such content as shared by our faculty.

The first in the series is posted here.

मां ज्वरतः कुरु - Cure me from fever
मां कासतः कुरु - Cure me from cough
मां प्रवाहिकातः कुरु - Cure me from dysentry

ज्वरतः, कासतः, प्रवाहिकातः these words were derived after suffixing 'तसि' to the words related to diseases ज्वर, कास, प्रवाहिका etc. The Paninian rule for this is रोगाच्चापनयने (5/4/49) which means रोगवाचिनः षष्ठ्यन्तात् वा तसिश्चिकित्सायाम् । (apply the suffix तसि to the word expressing disease when the meaning required is 'cure').

So, if we need to ask somebody for a cure from some disease, we can use this natural form of Sanskrit other than using some other expression.

जन्मवेला निशा शीता तृणदोलागतः शये।
रम्या मौक्तिकशोभा मे मा मा स्पृश म्रिये सकृत्॥

I am born in the cold night;
I sleep on the swing of the grass;
My beautiful look is like that of pearl;
Don't touch me for if you touch me, I will vanish immediately.
