"Unto Him Our Best" - that has been the motto for the yearlong celebration of Swami Chinmayananda's Centenary. As the culmination of this celebration, on

Sunday, May 8th 2016, members from all four Mission centers in the New England are, including our newest center in Dover, NH, will be celebrating Gurudev's 100th birthday at the Andover center. This will be an all-day event that will include great musical, dance and theatrical performances, as well as display booths that will showcase the different initiatives Chinmaya Mission is involved in worldwide, as well as locally in the Boston area. There will be Yoga sessions that will give us an opportunity to de-stress, as well as fun games and craft projects for our Balavihar children.

Of course, no celebration would be complete without some delicious food! Just as Gurudev criss-crossed India spreading the wisdom of ancient Hindu philosophy, we plan to have delicacies from Kerala to Uttarkashi, from Mumbai to Calcutta, to satisfy every palate.

We are lining up coordinators and volunteers for the many, many tasks that such an event entails. Based on your interest, we welcome parents to sign up to volunteer. Some of the areas in which we are looking for help are the decoration committee, food committee, display committee, games committee, cultural committee, and so on. Your children's Balavihar teachers will be reaching out to you looking for help in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Padmini Narayan at pnar98@yahoo.com if you would like to help in any of the areas, so that we can come together to make Gurudev's Birthday Celebrations a grand success.
