Devi Study Group



Chinmaya Devi Study Group

The first Devi Group, or Chinmaya Study Group exclusively for women, was inaugurated in November 1958, in Chennai, India, with Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s blessings: “Salutations to Mothers!  I need not mention how happy I am that a Devi section of Chinmaya Mission is being inaugurated on this sacred day.  Women of the country mould its future.  The caliber of the children will be determined by the upbringing given by their mothers.   Indeed, women have been, and even today are, the real custodians of our country’s spiritual culture.”

These encouraging words lay the foundation of Chinmaya Mission’s Devi Group culture, and these Devi Groups are today an integral feature of almost every Mission center across the world. Following the same curriculum as Chinmaya Study Groups, Chinmaya Devi Groups have grown over the years as powerful learning forums, open discussion arenas, and healthy support systems for women of all ages.

At Chinmaya London, Devi Group is a forum for ladies inspired by scriptural studies to come together and gain a better understanding of Vedanta and its practical application in family life for Self Unfoldment.  The study group delves into the meaning behind life and encourages individual growth through the study of the timeless message in Vedanta.

Currently the group meets on the last Friday of every month for 1.5 hours, watch an episode of Upanishad Ganga, reflect on its message and review the discussion points listed by Acharya Vivek ji. All attendees are encouraged to share their thoughts by the facilitator.
