Chinmaya Vision Programme (CVP)

The Chinmaya Vision Programme had its formal beginning in June 1996 when it was introduced in Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Coimbatore.

The Chinmaya Vision Programme is what makes the Chinmaya Education Institutions ‘institutions with a difference’. It concretises Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s vision of education, and was born to enshrine the philosophy of education developed by Him in the heart of every student to bring out the best in him or her.

Yathaa drishti tathaa srishti - As the vision so the world appears to us.

If man’s vision is narrow and disturbed, the world also seems filled with strife. If the vision is road and love-filled, so too is his world.

The child is the focal point of this programme. The programme also embraces the school management, teachers and parents. Through them, the light of this vision spreads to the society, country, and the world at large.

This programme has been introduced to representatives of over 2000 schools and colleges till date, and has gone to 20 states of India through more than 500 seminars. It has even crossed the shores of India.

Integrated Development

It implies good health and proper growth of students leading to the optimum expression of their overall well-being. It includes physical fitness, nutrition, hygiene, personal grooming, health education, health assessment, prevention of diseases and their treatment.


It aims at making the student an emotionally balanced person. It thereby helps him / her to live in harmony with himself / herself and the world. It includes emotional expansion, handling emotions, handling relationships, gender specific education, mental health assessment and counselling.


Man has infinite intellectual potential. Under this head, CVP aims to help the student manifest his / her inherent intellectual capacities and enhance existing ones. It includes intellectual kindling, independent thinking, management skills, aesthetics, intellectual assessment and guidance.


Man is potentially divine. Spiritual Development enables the student to discover his / her inherent divinity and manifest it. It is achieved through value education, value based education, philosophy, meditation techniques, yoga etc.

Universal Outlook
Universal Outlook refers to an appreciation, sensitivity and commitment to universal issues. After years of mindless pillage of nature, the world needs to come back to a universal holistic view of life. A universal outlook helps the student view himself / herself as responsible citizen of the world (including its burning issues), live in harmony with creation (environment education and the synthesis between science and religion) as well as become aware of being an intrinsic part of the macrocosm.
Indian Culture
Culture is more than just art forms, festivals and rituals. Culture is the very way of life of a race and its thinking, which makes it unique and special. Under this head the student is given a wide exposure to the various aspects of our culture, cultural awareness and appreciation of the vast literary, artistic and scientific heritage of India, explanations of customs and traditions and cultural motivation through hobbies and projects etc.
This vital area of focus includes education in citizenship, civic consciousness, fostering pride in being Indian and vital national concerns such as unity in diversity. It aims at creating dedicated and committed citizens who take real pride in serving the nation.
