Great men are many. Some become great by bringing other people down while a truly great man is one who raises even small and ordinary people to sublime heights of greatness. Swami Chimayananda was one such great person who transformed the lives of millions who came in contact with him in many countries. His love of humanity was all encompassing in which he embraced young and old, rich and poor, literate and illiterate and worked tirelessly for their welfare and well being. Life of such a great one is verily a perennial source of inspiration to countless people.
It is indeed a matter of joy that Swamiji's life is now appearing in the Amar Chitra Katha series. Children will love to read his life story and will discover how from a mischievous child there emerged a great man passing through various stages of atheism, patriotism and ultimately attaining Spiritual Enlightenment in the holy company of Swami Sivanandji Maharaj and Swami Tapovanji Maharaj. The Chinmaya Mission, which Pujya Swamiji established to spread the message of Vedanta and serve the society in a number of ways, continues to follow his Ideal.
