What is CHYK?

CHYK is the youth wing (18-35 years) of the Chinmaya Mission, dedicated to the study and dissemination of Vedanta. Through classes, seminars, and literature, enquiring young minds from all backgrounds explore this ancient knowledge, learn how to incorporate it into their fast-paced lives and discover the clarity, efficiency, and contentment that they seek.

MOTTO: “Harnessing youth potential through dynamic spirituality”


  • Weekly interactive study classes
  • Camps and Workshops
  • Social Service Projects
  • Performing Arts Performances

Is CHYK for me?

Have these questions ever come to your mind?

  • Why do I do, what I do?
  • What does it mean to be happy?
  • Career, wealth, family: is there anything more?
  • What is the purpose of my life?

Vedanta is the philosophy enshrined in the Bhagavad Geeta and Upanishads. It’s timeless wisdom helps us to discover answers to these fundamental questions through logic and reason. The CHYK class is a forum for discussion and reflection on essential questions which tend to slip our awareness on a day-to-day level.
