One of the greatest gifts from Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda to the
younger generation is the ‘Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK). The CHYK program provides
spiritual and cultural orientation to the youth of the modern age.
CHYK Vancouver targets the youth between the ages of 16 and 35.
Mission Statement: To empower youth with the vision, values, and dynamism for success in all fields
The purpose of CHYK, as given by Pujya Gurudev, is to harness dynamic potential.
Gurudev said that today’s youth are not useless; they are used less. And that youth
are not careless; they are cared for less than they should be. CHYK strives to unite
youth and young adults by providing a forum to explore, discuss, and practice Vedanta
while strengthening their lives in every endeavor. The objectives of CHYK include:
To provide a spiritual forum and introduce the philosophy and message of Vedanta
To unite members spiritually and professionally through satsang and community service
To build and develop future leaders
CHYK Vancouver strives to unite young adults by providing a forum to explore, discuss,
and practice Vedanta while strengthening their lives in every endeavor.
Furthermore, through the study of a Vedantic text, practical examples are given and
discussed enabling the scriptures to become directly relevant in the lives of the youth.
