The Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth envisions Spirituality, Purity, Practicality and Innovation as its foundational principles. All activities of the University therefore to be aligned to these foundational principles, articulated in some detail below:
Spirituality : The personal quest that leads the individual to an appreciation of a higher Reality. The philosophy of Vedanta and the wisdom of the saints have always guided humanity to this larger vision of life. Students will be encouraged to listen, read, and reflect upon such body of spiritual literature that is conducive to their inner refinement and self-unfoldment. All academics offered at the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth will therefore be aligned to encourage such a quest.
Purity : Traditions through their source texts, Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth aims to stimulate youth with Indian Knowledge Traditions to create living repositories who will in turn nurture the tradition for the future. Knowledge of Sanskrit which is an integral part of learning, will be a key enabler for the study of these original sources.
Practicality : By blending the wisdom of the ancient with the current education fields, CVV offers programs on topics that will lead the students to find respectable living through gainful employment. All this is done while maintaining the highest degree of academic rigour.
Innovation : To spark the spirit of conceptual and strategic innovation among the modern youth, CVV aims to transfer the wealth of ancient Indian wisdom, along with contemporary knowledge, through innovative pedagogy and teaching methodologies. Through this, it strives to be progressive, while retaining the current best practices.
