Stuti Vandana (Prayers) Program (No Fee)
'Stuti' in Sanskrit means glorification. Stuti Vandana contains a collection of hymns selected from our ancient scriptures glorifying the Lord. These sacred hymns, also called as 'Stuti-s', when chanted with faith, sincerity and dedication, have the potential to purify our minds and instill in them wholehearted devotion for God.
President's Service Award for High Schoolers
Chinmaya Mission Yamunotri is approved as an official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award! We will begin with awarding this award to our High Schoolers who are registered in Bala Vihar.
Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning selfless service, and perhaps considered the most important part of any spiritual practice. It lies at the heart of the path of karma yoga—selfless action—and asks us to serve others with no expectation of outcome. This award is a small recognition for our exceptional volunteers working with the sevabhav (feeling of selfless service).
