Chinmaya Yuva Kendra, or CHYK, is the global youth wing of Chinmaya Mission. It aims to inspire and guide youngsters to discover their hidden potential and tap into its infinite source at will.
CHYK Motto : Harnessing Youth Potential through Dynamic Spirituality
CHYK Mission Statement : To empower youth with the vision, values, and dynamism for success in all fields.
Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda formed CHYK with the vision of helping youth realize their latent and infinite inner potential. Pujya Gurudev encouraged them to test the logic and practicality of Vedantic scriptural teachings through applications in daily life. This emphasis on knowledge through application, which Pujya Gurudev referred to as ‘Spirituality in Action’ or ‘Dynamic Spirituality’ has transformed millions of youth and is a tradition which continues to be followed at CHYK to date.
Study Classes CHYK study classes are interactive reading and discussion sessions where participants study Vedantic texts based on the syllabus developed by Swami Chinmayananda and supplemented by Swami Tejomayananda. Trained moderators and class coordinators guide students to reflect deeply, examine critically, and debate positively based on their comprehension and personal experiences. It also allows students to put across challenges faced by them in their life and find answers to them through these discussions.
Camps/Workshops/Picnics From residential retreats, to one-day workshops, seminars, symposia, debates, picnics, and competitions, CHYKs around the world have continued to think outside the box and organize unique, creative events with catchy themes and relevant topics that gives them a deeper understanding of themselves and the world at many levels.
Chykture & Sports Once a month on Sunday classes CHYKs organize a movie screening based on spiritual grounds and conduct an interactive session after the same. Any one Sunday of a month is also reserved specifically towards playing outdoor sports like football / cricket.
Social Service Projects Dynamic spirituality is best exemplified through the various social service projects CHYKs have served and fundraised for over the years. A huge number of CHYKs regularly undertake teaching value-based living to children and teenagers in slums and conducting blood drives for various blood banks.
