To honour and thank the beloved grandparents for their unconditional love, the learners of classes I-II and Pre- Primary Department of Chinmaya Vidyalaya, New Delhi celebrated Grandparents' Day – Grand Masti with Grandparents.
Our learners of classes I and II welcomed the grandparents with the auspicious tilak ceremony. This was followed by a myriad of joyful activities, music, dance and creative craft. Our munchkins were fascinated by the riveting stories told by the greatest storytellers, the grandparents. They lent a helping hand to their Nanis and Dadis while preparing finger-licking and healthy recipes as part of the non-fire cooking activity.
The learners in Pre- Primary Department enjoyed story time with their grandparents wherein they learnt the lessons about being kind and good. They also enjoyed dancing with their grandparents.
The Founder and Guide
He believed that Vedanta, the universal science of life, was the spiritual birthright of every human being, and that its earnest study would result in tremendous growth and evolution. Advaita Vedanta, the ageless wisdom of universal oneness, is applicable to all, irrespective of background and class; ecumenical in approach, and with the remarkable ability to accommodate changing times without compromising its essence.
He wished to build an institution, not an institute; a veritable movement that nourished souls, creating new generations of men and women of high integrity and great moral stature. Gurudev’s vision, enshrined in the Chinmaya Vision Programme, is the foundation on which the Chinmaya Educational Institutions stand tall today, nourishing the global Chinmaya family and the society at large.
With more than 10,000 students children enrolling each year, and more than a million having graduated, the Chinmaya Education Movement has come a long way since inception. Many lamps have been lit, many hearts have been kindled…
