Chinmaya Gita Chanting Competition

"To adore an ideal with reverence and devotion, and to sing His glories, at all times continuously, is the silent act of a mind that has been fully opened to appreciate the ideal that one has learnt to glorify."

-Swami Chinmayananda

Unveiling the Wisdom: Chinmaya Gita Chanting Competition

Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda, esteemed "Gita Acharya," dedicated his life to making the Bhagavad Gita accessible to everyone. Recognizing the importance of nurturing these profound teachings from a young age, Swami Chinmayananda introduced the Chinmaya Gita Chanting Competition (CGCC).

From Budding Seed to Flourishing Community

The CGCC has become a central activity in Chinmaya Mission Centres worldwide. Inspired by Swami Chinmayananda’s belief in "catching 'em young," it began as a Bala Vihar programme, a nurturing space for children's spiritual growth. Over time, the CGCC has blossomed to encompass all ages, fostering a vibrant community united by a vision to share the knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita. This unique competition embodies Chinmaya Mission’s progressive approach – "chant-study-know-live."

More Than a Competition: A Journey of Self-Discovery

The CGCC transcends a typical competition; it is a transformative journey of self-discovery. Chanting the Bhagavad Gita ignites a desire to understand its meaning, leading to self-knowledge and ultimately, fulfillment. It is the key that unlocks the treasure chest of God's love, and opens a path to embrace wholeheartedly.
