Message from Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayanandaji

The purpose of education is manifold. Literacy and employment are its primary aims. Another purpose is to make students capable of living their lives fully at all levels of their personalities. They should be able to face the numerous challenges of life and carve out a purposeful future for themselves.

At yet another level, the purpose of education is to groom students in noble cultural values. In the absence of this culture, knowledge itself and material prosperity can become a weapon of destruction instead of a means of blessing to humanity. Still higher than this aim is to create a thirst for greater knowledge in students, so that they discover the mysteries of Nature and the world around them.

The Chinmaya International Residential School at Coimbatore imparts education to students from India and abroad. Keeping all the aforesaid in view, children get modern education in an atmosphere of rich Indian culture.

Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda had laid the foundation of this school in Coimbatore, a few years ago. He attained Mahasamadhi in August 1993. To realise His cherished dream is now the sacred duty of us all - His disciples, devotees, followers and admirers. Let us come together and pay our respectful homage to Him in making the Chinmaya International Residential School a reality. May He shower His grace and blessings on us to make this project a great success.
