Swami Chinmayananda, affectionately addressed as “Pujya Gurudev” blessed our effort when we acquired the property on Park Avenue in San Jose in 1987. He named it Sandeepany San Jose. Pujya Gurudev sent us the best teacher he then had in India, Swami Tejomayananda, to be the first Acharya of Sandeepany San Jose from 1989 – 1993. Swami Chinmayananda also formally named the organization, Chinmaya Mission San Jose (CMSJ) in 1992.
