Chinmaya Mission - Vancouver
The seeds of “The Chinmaya Movement” were laid in Vancouver B.C., in 1972 when Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji was scheduled to arrive for a series of three lectures at Simon Fraser University. The organizer, Mrs. Menon suddenly had to fly to New York and so Mr. and Mrs. Kapahi got the golden opportunity of hosting Gurudev. This accidental incident proved to be a turning point in their lives and of the Chinmaya movement in Vancouver.
Since then regular study classes have been conducted in Vancouver by various Acharyas. Inspired by Pujya Gurudev, Robyn Thompson joined the two year Brahmachari course in Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Mumbai. Brni Robyn returned to Vancouver in 1986 and conducted regular study classes which were held first at Mr. and Mrs Deshpandeï¿½s residence and later on at Mr and Mrs Kapahiï¿½s residence.
Brni Robyn now conducts regular classes in Victoria. Jaya Muzumdar conducts weekly study groups for different levels and monthly adult study classes in Vancouver and Seattle.
The mission has grown rapidly and we have at least two Jnana yagnas every year. We also have classes running for children, youth and adults alike.
