University Day Celebrations 2022

The fifth University Day of Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth (CVV) was celebrated on 16 January 2022 at its Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula campus in Ernakulam. The event was conducted in hybrid mode. Those on campus attended the event at Chidvilas while everyone else joined on Zoom or watched the live streaming on YoutTube. 

CVV students Krishnapriya and Sreelakshmi divinised the atmosphere with a beautiful prayer. Following the welcome address by the Registrar i/c Dr. Soumya S., Vice Chancellor Prof. Ajay Kapoor presented the  milestones of the past year. He said it was greatly appreciable that we conducted classes and examinations and declared the results on time in spite of a constraining situation. Students’ achievements including giving multiple TedX talks and a praiseworthy placement/internship records were shared proudly by the VC. He said,  the various publications undertaken by the faculty also increase the glory of the  University.

In his address, Honourable Chancellor Pujya Swami Swaroopananda admired the resilience shown by the faculty, students and staff during the past year that was filled with multiple challenges and coming out of it flying high. Pujya Swamiji also spoke of the upcoming campuses and how inspiring and beneficial they would be for seekers of knowledge. Reviving Indian Knowledge Systems and integrating them with Contemporary Knowledge Systems is indeed a grand vision for enhancing the potential of individuals in our country and the world at large, to make us productive members of society, giving more than what we take.

Prof. Sreevalsa Kumar, (Dean, Academics) took the opportunity to honour the faculty for their outstanding achievements and contribution to CVV which will nourish and further the growth of CVV as well as their respective fields. 

Continuing from the Chancellor’s address, Managing Trustee Dr. Apparao Mukkamala shared the progress updates of the upcoming campus ‘Vidya Pratishthanam’ in Onakkoor and ‘Prajna Pratishthanam’ in Ernakulam city. He exhorted everyone to spread the word about CVV and make it a success.

Connecting to the same thread, Swami Advayananda (Trustee, CVV Trust)  highlighted the unique nature of Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth as it was the fruition of Pujya Swami Chinmayananda’s vision. He said we have become the ‘nimitta’ or instrument in the unfolding of this great grand vision.

This was followed by a delightful flute rendition by Pt. Rupak Kulkarni (Guru, School of Kalayoga, CVV) ably accompanied by the students of CNBG on bansuri and tabla.

The vote of thanks was delivered by Dr. Soumya who recollected all who have contributed to the event’s success. The event drew to a close with the taking of the pledge and singing of the National Anthem.
