"Youth are not useless, but used less" - Swami Chinmayananda


The Chinmaya Vidyalaya has as its emblem, the lamp and the 'Hamsa' bird. In the light of the Scriptures (represented by the lamp) the discriminative power of the human intellect is to be developed (represented by the Hamsa bird). Vedic tradition describes Hamsa as a bird that can drink milk alone from a solution of milk and water. The human intellect with its discriminative power must be able to discriminate between spirit and matters and must come to enjoy the Spiritual Essence in the world of names and forms. Thus the emblem indicates that the function of the Mission is to help people in developing ethical values and cultivating in them a discriminative intellect.

School Motto
The Vidyalaya motto is 'Keep Smiling' and it means: Be brave and courageous, face every experience in life with a smile on your face.

In other words, be balanced in life under all circumstances - joy or sorrow, success or failure, honour or dishonour, prosperity or adversity. This calmness of the mind expresses itself in a smile.
