Evergreen messages by
Swami Chinmayananda

The day you take up the policy of giving love instead of demanding it - that day you will have rewritten your entire future destiny.

The Chinmaya Mission Pledge
We stand as one family,
bound to each other,
with love and respect.

We serve as an army,
courageous and disciplined,

ever ready to fight against,
all low tendencies and false values,
within and without us.

We live honestly the noble life of
sacrifice and service,

producing more than
what we consume,

and giving more than what we take.
We seek the Lord’s Grace
to keep us on the path of
virtue, courage and wisdom.

May Thy grace and blessings flow
through us to the world around us.
We believe that
the service of our country

is the service of the Lord of Lords,
And the devotion to the people is
the devotion to the Supreme Self.
We know our responsibilities,
give us the ability and the
courage to fulfill them.


Chinmaya Mission Pledge.

Swami Prakarshananda, an alumini of Sandeepandy Sadhanalaya, Powai, Mumbai, comes to Delhi with an illustrous record of service to the Chinmaya Mission. A Veterinary Doctor by profession, he worked at the Bombay Veterinary Collage as an Assistant Professor for seven years. During this period he mastered the principles of Yoga by undergoing an Advanced course from the Mumbai University.

Exposure to the chanting of Sanskrit mantras through the Yoga training, was a transforming moment in life. As a result, Swamiji joined the Chinmaya Mission’s Vedanta Course and underwent an intensive two-year monastic training through the study of the Scriptures.

There, then arose a strong commitment to devote his life to propagate Vedanta, which resulted in his being initiated as Brahmachari Prahlad Chaitanya. He served as Acharya to the Chinmaya Mission Madgaon, Goa, from 2004 to 2016 and endeared himself to the members there. In 2014, on Shivaratri, he received Sanyasa Deeksha with the new name of Swami Prakarshananda.

During his inspiring tenure in Madgaon, (2004 – 2016) in addition to supervising and growing all the grassroot activities of the Mission, Swami Prakarshananda:

  • Conducted a unique Youth Empowerment Programme.
  • Conducted sessions on Advaita Vedanta for almost three years at the Christian Rachol Seminary, Rachol, South Goa for their priests.
  • Delivered, for two consecutive years, valuable sessions on Mind Management for army personnel, at 3TMR (Military Training Recruitment Centre) South Goa.
  • Pioneered, from 2007 till date, the introduction of the Bhagawad Geeta Course for one semester at the prestigious BITS Pilani, Goa Campus.
  • Organized, for two consecutive years, special classes on the holistic approach to education for principal and teachers of a village school at Morpilla, in South Goa, under the Chinmaya Vision Programme.
  • Authored numerous books in English, Hindi and Marathi.  Some titles are: Magic of Love, Secret of Success, My Promise, Yogakshema Vahamyaham, Bhakt-Bhakti-Bhagawan.
  • Blessed with a melodious voice recorded CDs - Gurusmaranam and Puja Vidhi.
  • Led an inspired group on a pilgrimage to Kailash Manasarovar, and thereafter authored a much acclaimed Travelogue on the Yatra (in Hindi).

Swami Prakarshananda conducts regular Study Classes and discourses with equal ease on the Upanishads, Bhagawad Geeta, Bhagawatam, Sri Ramcharitmanas, Das Bodh and other Scriptural texts.

A dynamic, spiritual guide with command over Hindi, English, Marathi and Sanskrit, Swami Prakarshananda has a simple style and a practical approach to life. His explanations adorned with examples from day-to-day living, make even difficult subjects interesting, appealing and easy for all ages to understand.
