Temple is that which gives an atmosphere for the human mind to quieten itself into the contemplation of the higher Reality. A temple is a social center and must become a place of cultural revival. It is a sacred place of reverence (Sangam), where love of the mind and respect of the intellect (Ganga and Jamuna) come together – Swami Chinmayananda.
A holistic way to improving your health.
The laws of a country protect the freedom of its people but prevent them from being reckless and irresponsible in their activities. In a similar way, religious books prescribe a code of conduct for life that gives us a means for developing and maintaining the right contact with the world. If we learn to follow such a code intelligently, we can lead a healthy and dynamic life. from “Self-Unfoldment” – Swami Chinmayananda
Chinmaya Mission was founded in 1953 by His Holiness Swami Sri Chinmayananda .
His devotees formed the nucleus of a spiritual renaissance movement that now encompasses a wide range of spiritual, educational, and charitable activities, ennobling the lives of thousands in India and worldwide.
Presently headed by His Holiness Swami Tejomayananda.
The Mission has continued mushrooming across the universe and stands today with over 400 centers worldwide.
Friday, June 13, 2003, marked a milestone in Chinmaya Mission Boston history with the inauguration of its new centre, “Sri Chinmaya Maruti Temple“.
Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda presided over the idol installation ceremony of Lord Maruti (Hanuman) and his talks on Hanumanji were the highlights of the event. The 12,000 sq ft brick building is situated on a 2.5-acre lot with a beautiful wooded backyard that gently slides down to the flowing Shawsheen River.
An image of Lord Ganesha greets devotees, as do the life-size photos of Param Pujya Swami Tapovanam and Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda. A few steps below the lobby is the shrine where the main deity, Lord Hanuman resides with Rama Parivara made of pancha dhatu (five metals), a Shiva Linga and Nandi, and Pujya Gurudev’s padukas. Clear glass separates the sanctorum from the main hall.
The idol is made of white marble. Looking at Hanumanji’s most attractive face with a hint of a smile one is overcome with a feeling of peace and quiet. He instills all who worship him with fearlessness. Chinmaya Maruti has 24-carat gold leaf ornaments with gold trimmed beautifully coloured clothes and a pastel coloured garland. Hanumanji’s utsav murti, 2 ft high with hands folded and made of pancha dhatu is used for regular abhishek.
Daily worship and special pujas are performed in the shrine. Hanuman Abhishekam is on every Tuesday @ 7:00 pm and we celebrate lot of hindu festivals according to exact usa eastern time.
