Date : 22 Mar 2024

Swamini Aaradhanananda peacefully took final refuge at the lotus feet of Pujya Gurudev in Mumbai, at 12.16 AM on 22 March 2024.

A student of the 1991-1993 batch of the Vedanta Course at Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Powai, Mumbai, she went on to receive Brahmacharya Deeksha in May 1993, when she was given the name Brahmacharini Vividisha Chaitanya.

In February 2012, she received Sannyasa Deeksha from Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, and became Swamini Aaradhanananda.

Her illustrious 30-year tenure at Central Chinmaya Mission Trust in Powai, Mumbai, was marked by an array of remarkable contributions and her vibrant spirit manifested in diverse talents, exceptional traits and deep devotion towards Radha Rani.

As the editor of Balvihar magazine, Swamini Aaradhanananda poured her heart into crafting an enriching tapestry of content for children. Each issue, meticulously curated, brimmed with jokes, puzzles, special celebrations, captivating stories, thought-provoking articles and enchanting drawings. Also the author of 11 books for children, her unwavering commitment to nurturing young minds fostered an environment of joy, learning and spiritual growth.

Her mastery of mimicry brought delight and laughter, while her eloquent command over English filled the magazine’s pages with grace and charm. Beyond linguistic prowess, her poetic compositions wove tales of inspiration and wonder.

She will be remembered for her immense seva to Chinmaya Mission, which she offered with great devotion. Our respectful homage to Swamini Aaradhanananda.
