Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda made it a priority to revive the young generation of Indians who were drifting through life without any clear goals, vision or direction. He believed that growth of the newly independent India could only be achieved by a motivated and clear-headed generation of youngsters.
In order to inspire the youngsters of India and show them the possibilities of a nobler life, Gurudev delivered a series of fiery 10-minute talks on All India Radio, based on the Bhagavad Gita. He gave this ancient wisdom a contemporary context and presented in a form that was palatable and practical to the modern youngsters. Although delivered in the 1960s, these teachings are as relevant, fresh and inspiring today as they more than 50 years ago.Swami Chinmayananda, pioneered the art of conveying sublime knowledge intricately wrapped in Sanskrit scripture through the medium of English discourse and commentary.
On realising the true purpose of life he worked tirelessly and with tremendous energy for more than four decades to spread the message of Vedanta.
A great writer, leader, patriot and spiritual giant, he brought about a spiritual renaissance of the Vedantic heritage to the world. A powerful orator with his own brand of wit and humour; he paints vividly the wisdom of the ages in front of us.
His commentary on the Bhagavad Geeta and Upanishads are considered one of the best ever for their clarity and crisp logic.
