"Happy Adi Shankaracharya Jayanti"
श्रुति-स्मृति-पुराणानां आलयं करुणालयं |
नमामि भगवत्पादम शंकरं लोकशंकरम् |
If you want to meet someone where do you go?
To their house.
So if you want to meet Shri Adi Sankaracharya, where is his house? Shruti Smruti Puranaam Aalayam.
But what if I go there and he doesn't meet me?
He will, because he is Karunaalayam.
But what if he speaks angrily to me? He won't. He is Shankaram.
Only with me?
With all. Loka Shankaram.

Chinmaya Mission Centres, Worldwide
Greetings from Chinmaya Vibhooti Vision Centre, Kolwan!
I'm very pleased to share with you a rare opportunity in relation to the upcoming Worldwide Acharya Conference, which will take place at Chinmaya Vibhooti from 28 February to 4 March, 2018. This is indeed a very special event, as you may recall that the last time similar gatherings were held was in 2008 (All India Acharya Conference) and in 2009 (International Acharya Conference).
Chinmaya Mission presently has over 350 Acharyas tirelessly serving across the world. The Worldwide Acharya Conference presents the wonderful privilege to individual members and/or centres to offer Bhiksha to all Acharyas. You may offer Rs 50,000 (or US$ 800) for Bhiksha for an entire day, or any other amount as Annadaanam. Please send us an email for payment instructions, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One-day Bhiksha donors are welcome to specify their preferred date in advance, from the five days of the Conference. If they are able to, they can visit Chinmaya Vibhooti at lunch time on that date, to serve the Acharyas and to receive blessings in person. Offerings in absentia would be most welcome, too.
Please do spread the word to the entire Chinmaya family, by widely circulating this email and the attached image.
Indeed, this is a blessed and wonderful opportunity for all to be a part of.
In His Service,
(CEO, Chinmaya Vibhooti)

Geeta Jayanti at Chinmaya Vrindavan #BhagavadGita #LivingGita Chinmaya Mission
During 13th Jnana Yagna in Delhi in 1955, Pujya Gurudev first introduced the world-famous BMI chart as a visual aid. With this chart and a long pointer, Pujya Gurudev would illustrate that Vedanta was indeed a scientific method-of-investigation that led the individual back to his Source. In the years to follow, the BMI chart became synonymous with Pujya Gurudev’s Gita Jnana Yagnas. It captivated both serious seekers of Vedanta and children alike. Children would invariably be dressed up as Pujya Gurudev in a Balvihar play, and imitate him pointing to the world of OET (objects, emotions, and thoughts), telling the audience to “THINK!”.
