Staff n students ofChinmaya Vidyalaya Vadavalli, COIMBATORE expressed their admiration for their beloved Pujyaguruji Swami Chinmayananda on His 100 th Birthday by breaking several World Records. I was surprised with the pool of Talents ranging from a Pradeep who withstood 235 runs on his chest by Two Wheelers to a smiling Bhoomish breaking Tiles on Flames!
If you have ever managed a kid of 4 to 5 you should know how tough a job is to keep them quiet for a minute. You can imagine 500 of them in Krishna Costumes with a Flute on hand, without their parents, for 10 minutes, under one roof! Hats off to Mr.Ramakrishnan the able Correspondent n the dedicated staff!

Vivekananda said years ago:”The tremendous emphasis on the scientific and mechanical ways of life is fast reducing man to the status of a machine. Moral and religious values are being undermined. The fundamental principles of civilization are being ignored. Conflicts of ideals, manners and habits are pervading the atmosphere. Disregard for everything old is the fashion of the day.” Vivekananda sought the solutions of all these social and global evils through education. With this end in view, He felt the dire need of awakening man to his spiritual self wherein, he thinks, lies the very purpose of education.
This humane task has been implemented by Pujyaguruji Swami Chinmayananda’sVidyalayas all over the World! I felt so elated to witness this in Chinmaya Vidyalaya Vadavalli!
In an era where teachers are made fun of, with no discipline whatsoever, I saw Pradeeps n Bhoomishs prostrating seeking their Guruji’s Blessings!
Such institutions will not only create more n more World Records, but will produce Einsteins n Sachins too, as Vinayam is implanted in this Gurukulam!
“Vidyadanam Sarvadhanam Pradanam! “
May God Bless such Amazing Institutions!
