From residential retreats, to one-day workshops, to seminars, symposia, debates, and competitions, CHYKs around the world have continued to think outside the box and organize unique, creative events, with catchy themes, relevant topics, and intriguing activities, to help exploit and unfurl all of one’s personality layers: physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual.

While CHYK events differ enormously in style and content, the purpose and result of positive and uplifting energy that characterizes every CHYK activity pervades each event organizer, participant, and spectator alike. All CHYK special events are planned and organized under the auspices of Chinmaya Mission’s host of Acharyas, who constantly motivate, guide, channelize, and strengthen CHYKs on their journey of inner purity and evolution.

Upcoming Events


Presenting: A fresh way to connect with Gurudev and grow with CHYKs from all around CHYK West- an online book club! The book club will meet every other week on Mondays 9-10pm EST, starting January 20th, 2020. The first text we will be taking up is “We Must” by Swami Chinmayananda. Members are expected to read the chapter ahead of time and then each session will feature a discourse by a Swamin/Brahmacharin/Sevak on the chapter followed by an opportunity to ask them questions. We hope to be able to connect with Pujya Gurudev through His books and through the stories shared by those who had the grace of meeting Him!Sign up now!
