Chinmaya Haridwar - Portland
Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda named our center as Chinmaya Haridwar on June 18th, 2013. “Haridwar“ means “Gateway to God”. The presiding deity of Chinmaya Haridwar is “Madhur Krishna“.
October 2nd is an important day for us, it was the day we honored one of the most integrated personalities of our times, Mahatma Gandhi, and, it was on 2nd October 2013 when Chinmaya Mission Portland’s petition for the Conditional Use Permit for our new building was unanimously approved by the Planning and Zoning Hearings board for the City of Hillsboro.
When Guruji was informed of the approval, he congratulated all of us and declared “the Port to the Lord is now open!”.
