Chinmaya Mission Houston (CMH) is a unique and distinctive branch of Chinmaya Mission, founded in 1982 by resident Acaryas (spiritual teachers), Acarya Shri Gaurang Nanavaty and Acarya Smt. Darshana Nanavaty. The primary aim of Chinmaya Mission is to spread the wisdom of Vedanta and provide a platform for any seeker, of all nationalities, castes, and groups, to enrich and enable them to become positive contributors to society. Chinmaya Mission Houston follows the Vedic teacher-student tradition (Guru-Shishya Parampara) and makes available the ageless wisdom of Advaita Vedanta, the knowledge of universal oneness, providing the tools to realize the wisdom in one’s life. Vedanta, the essential core of Hinduism, is the universal science of life, relevant to all people of all backgrounds and faiths.

Vedanta inspires seekers to understand their own faith better. The Chinmaya movement aims for inner growth at individual and collective levels. The Mission offers a wide array of Vedanta study forums for all ages, promotes Indian classical art forms and operates numerous social service projects. Currently, this movement encompasses a wide range of spiritual, educational, medical, social, and charitable activities enriching the lives of thousands of people in India and abroad. “Giving maximum happiness to maximum people for maximum time” is the inspirational motto of Chinmaya Mission, which aims at uplifting people beyond selfish sectarian and parochial attitudes and activities, weaving them into a seamless world nourished by Vedantic wisdom.
