Chinmaya Mission Motto
"To Give Maximum Happiness To Maximum People For Maximum Time"
Chinmaya Mission Pledge
The Chinmaya Mission Pledge is a direct message to devotees from Swami Chinmayananda. In an inspired mood, he spontaneously dictated this pledge at a conference of Chinmaya Mission workers in the summer of 1962 at Ernakulam in Kerala, India. He said this pledge would act as a guide to all Mission members and to the people in general.
We stand as one family, bound to each other with love and respect.
We serve as an army courageous and disciplined,
ever ready to fight against all low tendencies and false values,
within and without us.
We live honestly the noble life of sacrifice and service,
producing more than what we consume, and giving more than what we take.
We seek the Lord’s Grace to keep us on the path of virtue, courage and wisdom.
May Thy grace and blessings flow through us to the world around us.
We believe that the service of our country is the service of the Lord of Lords,
and devotion to the people is the devotion to the Supreme Self We know our responsibilities,
give us the ability and courage to fulfill them
