Spirit of CHYK West

The youth have always been symbols of bountiful energy, ambitious dynamism, inspiring creativity, and dauntless courage. To uplift themselves and their world, to awaken harmony within and without, to apply their vibrant energy for the betterment of society, they only require a noble cause, a high ideal, a sense of deep devotion, and the right channels of service.

Chinmaya Yuva Kendra, or CHYK, is the global youth wing of Chinmaya Mission (ages 14-28 years). It aims to help youth discover their hidden potential and tap into its infinite source at will. From the inner unravelling of young minds, personalities of wisdom, beauty, and universality beam forth. Through their shared light of righteous actions, noble principles, and compassionate hearts can the world at large come to bask in the harmony of Oneness.

What started in 1975 as a small youth forum in Bangalore has now evolved into a global, dynamic, organized body that promotes personal spiritual unfoldment, varying social services, and integrated leadership skills. Spanning over 120 cities on four continents, CHYK has helped thousands of youth transform themselves and their world on multifarious levels.
