Chinmaya Vedanta Heritage Centre Shivalaya - Toronto
In the summer of 2011, Chinmaya Mission Toronto moved to our new location in Brampton. Our centre is also known as Chinmaya Vedanta Heritage Centre – Chinmaya Shivalaya. We have grown vastly over the years continually striving to fulfill Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda’s vision of propagating spiritual upliftment to all corners of the world – starting with our own communities.
World peace, harmony and compassion are routed in the individual’s peace, harmony and compassion. And, so we begin right here.
Swamini Shivapriyananda is our Senior Swamini for Chinmaya Mission Toronto – Shivalaya. Inspired by Pujya Swami Chinmayananda, Swamini Shivapriyananda completed the brahmachari course in Bombay in 1986 and was posted as Acharya of Chinmaya Mission Toronto. She received sannyasa initiation (diksha) from Pujya Swami Tejomayananda on Shivaratri in 2003. Swaminiji teaches adults and youth through lectures, seminars and workshops. Also, she conducts stress management courses as well as relaxation training. Swaminiji is an inspiration and guidance behind our Bala Vihar® success.
