About the book

His Holiness Swami Chinmayananda, founder of Chinmaya Mission, taught spirituality as the art of living. Through Jnana-yoga (the path of Knowledge), he emphasized the balance of head and heart, pointing out selfless work, study, and meditation as the cornerstones of spiritual practice.

Not satisfied by woldly aspirations or his degrees in literature and law, Balakrsna Menon pursued spiritual studies for nine years in the Himalayas, under the guidance of Swami Sivananda and the tutelage of Swami Tapovanam. He eventually came to share this dynamic teacher known as Swami chinmayanada.

Swamiji is renowned worldwide as a spiritual master and one of the foremost teachers of Bhagavad-gita. He is created with the renaissance of spirituslity and cultural values in India, and with the spreading of te ageless wisdom of Advaita Vedanta, as expounded by Adi Sankaracarya, throughout the world.

Swami Chinmayananda attained mahasmadhi in august 1993. His legacy remains in the form of written, audio, and video publications; social service projects; Vedanta teachers whom he taught and inspired; and chinmaya Mission centres worldwide, serving the spiritual and cultural needs of local communities.

Additional biographical information can be found in Journey of a Master, Ageless Guru, Swami Chinmayananda : A Teaching of Inspiration and service, At Every Breath, A Teaching and Swami chinmayanda Reader, which are available from Chinmaya publications (ccumtpublications@chinmayamission.com)

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
