The purpose of Chinmaya Mission is to provide to individuals, from any background, the wisdom of vedanta and practical means for spiritual growth and happiness, enabling them to become positive contributors of society


SEVANJALI has been designed and organized by dedicated volunteer members of CMLA. This annual event is being held with the express purpose of raising funds to support the myriad number of social, educational and cultural activities of the Mission around the U.S. and the world. A part of the proceeds will also be earmarked for ongoing CM service projects in aid of the poor and marginalized. Closer home, your support over the past many years has allowed us to provide greater instructional services to children and adults across Southern California and encouraged us to initiate new projects and ideas. Your generosity will continue to inspire us to think forward and work toward meeting the needs of our growing membership.


Why we need your support...

Your invaluable support is solicited for CMLA to expand its educational services to the community. Chinmaya Early Education Program for children between ages 2 and 4 that began in Jan 2011 is one among the many projects that are in pipeline in this direction. CMLA also envisions to enhance its support for learning of various art forms of India by youth in next few years. Your financial support will help CMLA pay off the mortgage loans on Rameshwaram – the new facility of CMLA acquired in 2009 to accommodate the ever increasing demand for Balvihar classes in the southern land. Over 8 satellite centers are being supported by CMLA to reach out to maximum number of families who are eager to reinforce spiritual values in the young minds. You support is our strength and with that we will create a dynamic future for today’s youth!
