Gurudev comes home, yes, you read that right. Marking the start of the 2 year-long celebrations leading upto the 108th birth anniversary of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji, devotees of Chinmaya Mission Chennai would be taking home Gurudev's padukas for 3 days each.
Beginning from 31st Dec 2022 till 31st Dec 2024, the padukas would be hosted in devotees' home, where they would be having pujas, satsangs, bhajans and more. It's a celebration of love and faith.
Here's our Devotee's, taking home Gurudev's padukas.

Holding on to Him, chanting His names, making His way through the city roads. Everything is magnified, beautiful and transcendental while submitting to the Guru's padukas.
“”””Hariom! Went through this brilliant experience of walking along with Gurudev from Heritage centre to my house. Walked in the streets of choolaimedu, Kodambakkam, Vadapalani, Kk Nagar, among small vegetable vendors, sanitary workers, kids going to school, autos & buses and still felt the calmness. Tightly hold on to Him, Chanted bhajans, recited rudram, chamakam purushasuktam to Him. I hope he enjoyed my company 😁😁🙏🙏””””

“”””Hari Om Swamiji,
During my Chyk days and YEP training period, I was fortunate to drive you and other Acharyas to Tamaraipakkam. We had close to 15 acharyas of the mission taking classes during YEP. I also had the opportunity to drive Guruji when he came to Chennai.. I have heard about the escort Chyk used to do to Gurudev and always wished i could have driven him.
Gurudev gave me the opportunity to drive him 🙏🏼🥲“”””

Gurudev says Whenever you need me, close your eyes and look into your heart - and I will be there!
He is HERE in our hearts and now at our HOME
It is our Anugraham to host Gurudev at our house and reflect on his teachings these 3 days. We feel extremely energized and inspired by his presence.

We had a grand procession from Sri Harihara temple to our school. Every Thursday we have Guru Padhuka Pooja by one class. All the classes will get an opportunity to do it once a year. We begin with Class XII A. Today being the first Thursday of this academic year we feel we are extremely blessed to start the Pooja with his Divine Padhukas and HIS presence. This is the reason why I chose these dates so that we can begin the year with HIS blessings. I never realized that it's going to be a Thursday! I get goosebumps as I type this. Class XII participated in the celebration today.
We screened the movie On A Quest to the XII students following which we had a satsang with parents and students. Parents too offered their Pranams by singing beautiful bhajans and performed the Arathi
