Description
About the Book

In the nineteenth century, Swami Vivekananda said, “Buddha has a message for the easy. I have a message for the west.” A century later with the arrival of Swami Chinmayananda the world has vastly shrunk; nation were bound together by a vast network of communication systems and airline travel. Pujya Gurudev decided to take his message to the east the west and all around the globe.

The ways of mahatmas are mysterious. Why Gurudev chose to embark on this great Vedanta adventure may best be described in his message to Chinmaya Mission on the eve of his global tour in March 1965:

I cannot explain. It is a deep silence. It orders, and I obey. In 1943, IT took me to the feet of my Teacher, Swami Tapovanam in Uttarkashi on the banks of the Bhagirathi. In 1951, again IT beckoned me to the plains, and till today, I am roaming about in the country singing the message of the Upanisads and the Gita. I cannot explain. There IT is.

The inauguration of the Mission work in 1954 the idea of the college in 1957 the publication of various book form time to time year b year the starting of Devi group and balvihar the actual opening of the sandeepany Sadhanalaya the creation of Central Chinmaya Mission trust and now the departure for the global tour all these had happened one after the other obeying the commands that rose from an apparent silence within.

How far these have been helping our country and the country and the community is not a thing to be evaluated at this moment because it needs time, and I am too busy with the work to count the profits or estimate the results. From the standpoint of the materialist this is the wrong way of doing business it will be considered as haphazard disorganized chance driven activity. But I believe that the call was true and I have a immense measure of fulfilment at what I am now doing in answer to this call.

With a heart full of love for all mankind we take this pilgrimage to see him in all and to show to all him who is in everyone.

The word is waiting for an inward explosion to reach a more significant level of consciousness. If this tour can contribute even a wee bit towards his awakening it should be considered as a mighty success.

Swami Chinmayananda is revered as an embodiment of spirituality in the twentieth century and to most people swamiji himself his life and his place in history have remained an indelible and remarkable story of greatness.

But now it: Swami Chinmayananda A legacy answer these questions by telling his story. The extraordinary power of this book lies in the poignant words of swamiji himself through captivating conversations and incident. In a candid re-creation of his life and legacy this historical account shown the way for all people who aspire to a state of perfection in the modern age.’

Foreword

He alone lives to become immortal in whose living millions of people derive inspiration to live a life of nobility sacrifice and service blessed indeed are those who have the opportunity to live in the company of sch great men of spiritual enlightenment. In the absence of such company we can come to know and be inspired by enlightened masters through their writing as well as through various spiritual literature which show the way to live an elevated life. Here in this book is an opportunity to learn about the world renowned Vedantic Master of the twentieth century swami chinmayananda whom we reverently call pujya Gurudev.

What makes a person become great is a moment of inspiration culminating in a clear vision of the goal brought to fruition with relentless hard work. Then a person life become one of extraordinary achievement in both inner and outer worlds inspiring and motivating others to follow.

This is also the story of Pujya Gurudev. We felt that the his story needed to be told for it must be read and known by all. It has the power to purify and light a spark of inspiration in open minds. Read it and be blessed! Come to realize that there is a vast and abundant existence just waiting to unfold within you.

I am very happy that Mananam is bringing out this special edition he did it: swami Chinmayananda a Legacy as the first of a series of twelve book to herald the celebration leading to Pujya Gurudev’s birth centenary in 2016. May pujya Gurudev’s blessing always be with you in your quest for self knowledge and abiding happiness.

Introduction

Adi Sankara is the perfector of what had come before. Swami Vivekananda is Vedanta’s brightest single shining moment. Swami Chinmayananda is vision he built or rebuilt the path to scripture for modern man.

Comparisons between saints can only be on the outside. Each of India’s spiritual giants has had a unique character and personality. Each has brought to play a specific role in the revelation of the eternal Truth for mankind. And in the modern age swami Chinmayananda is acknowledged as he saint who pioneered a renaissance within Hinduism that knocked on doors swept homes and ended the monopoly of orthodox priests over Vedanta handing the priceless knowledge of the scriptures to the messes of India and the world.

On May 8, 2016, we celebrate the birth centenary of one of history’s most dynamic saints 100 years old his legacy 100 years young. As a tribute to him and as a testimony to his lasting legacy we present this first book of the Chinmaya birth centenary series, as a humble gestures of our reverence and appreciation. To the readers of this series who share in that legacy we welcome you to this celebration.

Swami Chimayananda has been honored loved and revered all over he world by leaders and ordinary people alike. Enraptured by all this praise, we might sometimes forget the vision hard work and long struggle that made all of this possible. Thus this book is also an attempt to understand a divine sankalpa conceived a century ago, on May 8, 1916 where the journey begins with his birth. And through the passage of time we will see how his life has stood the measure of love and inspiration multiplying many fold the impact he had on his world and on ours.

But if we think w get a true taste of the real Master then perhaps we are doing what the Zen master said, eating pictures of rice cakes. Can memories at any time adequately compare themselves to the mystery and reality we hold at this very moment as living breathing human beings? No. Yet, to leave this earthly realm and not avail ourselves of an opportunity to glimpse into one of the greatest inspirational journeys of the twentieth century why then we haven’t realty left our confines at all.

We present to you some glorious moments from the original memories of Swami Chinmayananda in the hope that once reconstructed these fragment will yield their share of history gold and make his life and legacy meaningful to you in this ever-present moment.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
