Acharyas : The Torchbearers of a Tradition
.............................................................................................................


To carry out the Mission's work across the world, a number of acharyas serve selflessly in many different ways, guiding and training seekers and volunteers and connecting them to the teachings with devotion, dedication, and discipline.  Most acharyas would have undergone intensive scriptural study and training through the residential Vedanta course offered at the Sandeepany Gurukuls of Chinmaya Mission.

Some may be attired in white signifying purity of thought, word and deed while studying and having chosen to remain that way in service too.  Brahmacharins wear yellow which signifies knowledge and self-control.  Orange robes, representing renunciation and total transformation, are for the swamins who have been initiated into the holy order of sannyasa.  The contribution of Chinmaya Mission acharyas is evident in and through all the work that is taking place around the world.
