GURUDEV: Swami Chinmayananda


Salutations to thee Oh wise one

Thou are the Knower of Om

Beyond the body – Dehatitaya

Nirupamaya – thou are incomparable


Bringing Hinduism to Hindus and All

You uplifted many from consciousness fall

Your spiritual encounters created wise men

Through those men the world shall gain


Uncanny, witty your methods of speech

Unique are the methods by which you preach

I wonder like you anyone else can teach

For out of this world is your outreach


Your BMI chart simply so expressible

Your source of inspiration inexhaustible

The Geeta Gnana brought forth by you

Nurtures lifestyles spiritually adjustable


You conquered the senses and imparted sense

Your taint-less magnanimity with prudence

Salutations to you –the best among men at glance

The Great sage, teacher of Mahavakyas enhance


You lived life incomparable from the rest

Within storms you remained undisturbed best

Dhairyapradaya – Instiller of courage immense

Beyond dualities you lived with pertinence

  1. You are fortunate Guruji for having met him in person. I have met him only through his video clips and Geeta explanations and cannot stop admiring the vast ocean of knowledge in Him.


  2. He is a flame of fire of wisdom within. His oratory skills are unparalleled. Humour at its peaks and the wisdom is given in simple terms. My grandmother is an initiate from his dear disciple Sarada Priyananda. I used to have high affinity towards his teachings when I was in undergrad. Ofcourse now too I revere, but my search and path took me elsewhere.

    There is a very interesting book titled Wandering in the Himalayas. It’s a one of its kind books depicting us the Himalayan explorations of Swamiji’s guru Tapovan Maharaj.

      1. Wow. Your daughter is lucky to have him as a guru. If you have read Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahamsa Yogananda, you would see how he was guided by his guru even after his guru left physical body and how he was guiding his disciples who are distant, not knowing himself!! There is always an exaggeration and grain of truth in these. Out of experience we choose what suits us!!
