Chinmaya Mission Pittsburgh

Chinmaya Mission Pittsburgh (CMP) was started in 1978 with the inspiration and blessings of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda, after his very first Gita Jnana Yajna in Pittsburgh. CMP has conducted weekly Bala Vihar children's classes and CMP Jnana Yajnas at various local temples. Festival celebrations unite all the families from all the venues. The center was formally opened on August 3, 2008, by Pujya Swami Tejomayanandaji of Chinmaya Mission International. Under his advice, we installed Hanumanji's Murthy at this center and named the center Chinmaya Sanjeevani. As of September 2018, the CMP Bala Vihar program spread to three centers across Pittsburgh with over 500 total registered students.

“Know that Yuva Kendra is the bow, and a

pure mind is the sharpened arrow. Your goal should be (knowledge of) the Self and welfare of the world. Like the arrow (that hits its target), may you become one with the goal.”

- Swami Tejomayananda
