Meditation leader Swami Chidatmananda will visit University of Redlands

Spiritual leader of the Chinmaya Mission in India will be on campus on August 23

REDLANDS, August 20, 2013- Swami Chidatmananda, the Acharya (Teacher in Charge) of the Chinmaya Mission will give a talk on meditation and stress reduction at the University of Redlands Meditation Room on August 23, 2013 from 4 to 5 p.m. The Chinmaya Mission in Hyderabad and Regional Head of Andhra Pradesh, India is an outgrowth of the life-long dedication, sacrifice and spiritual teachings of the renowned Vedantic Master, His Holiness Swami Chinmayananda.

Swami Chidatmananda is popular for his talks on India’s cable TV channels, where he covers topics such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Vemana Padyamulu (poems by the Yogi Vemana). He also speaks on Vedanta (Upanishads), Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Chidatmananda conducts sessions for government organizations, management schools and politicians in India, addressing topics such as: stress and mind management, self-management, ethics, and morals.
Radiant with joy and clarity, Chidatmananda has endeared himself to American audiences who wish to learn the practical benefits of meditation.

The University of Redlands opened its Meditation Room in the fall of 2007, inaugurating one of the first “contemplative classroom” spaces in the country. As an academic space, the Meditation Room facilitates the mental training and interior rigor implicit in the dictum "know thyself," a foundation of liberal arts education.

Swami Chidatmananda is currently on a tour in the United States, speaking at various meditation centers, medical clinics, and Hindu temples.
