Chinmaya Mission Washington

Introduction

The Chinmaya Mission Washington DC Regional Center services Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia.

Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s first jnana yajna in Washington DC was in 1978, organized by Vilasini and her family. Pujya Gurudev returned for jnana yajnas in 1985 and 1987, and conducted residential camps in 1988 and 1989. Chinmaya Mission Washington Regional Center (CMWRC) was formed in 1988 and the founding trustees included Dr. Sadananda, Vilasini, and Nanik Lahori.

In 1988, in the auspicious presence of Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, CMWRC inaugurated its newly purchased building on a three-acre property at 46 Norwood Road in Silver Spring, Maryland. Thus began the first Sunday Chinmaya Study Group and Bala Vihar classes. In 1989, Pujya Gurudev blessed the new center by installing the idol of Lord Jagadishvara (Lord Shiva), and named the ashram, “Kailas Niwas.” He then appointed Swami Dheerananda to serve CMWRC.
