A meaningful ode of love and dedication Composed in 1981, Chinmaya Ashtottara Namavali is a much loved and used ode to the great Vedantic and visionary, Swami Chinmayananda. Swami Tejomayananda has given a new expression to this Namavali by composing Chinmaya Namamrita Stotram. In this discourse on the stotram, each name is a thought-provoking lesson in Vedanta and life and these are indicated from three stand points; the absolute, the totality and the transactional. While the Astottara Namavali and Namamrita Stotram are both known mainly to the Chinmaya family, the teachings found there in are universally applicable to all. Chanting the names and contemplating on their meanings can invoke great peace and inspiration to live a life of beauty and truth.
