It is far more relevant for young people to understand the purpose of life and how to live rather than contemplating life’s big questions in old age when life has largely passed us by
– Swami Chinmayananda

What is the Chinmaya youth program ?

Chinmaya youth program is called Chinmaya Yuva Kendra or ‘CHYK’ open for youth (18-30 years) & Junior Chinmaya Yuva Kendra or ‘JCHYK’ (Open to High school kids (14-17 years)

CHYKs all over unanimously agree that Vedanta gives them the tools to live life with equipoise and confidence, enabling them to awaken and channel our inherent energy.

That is because at its heart, Vedanta questions the purpose of life and through logic, indicates how the contentment we universally seek lies within. Vedanta is the philosophical core of the Bhagavad Geeta and Upanishads. Its principles however, are timeless and universal, and can benefit anyone from any background when applied.
