About Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth
Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth (CVV) was conceptualised in 2016, the birth centenary year of the inspirational visionary and founder of Chinmaya Mission, renowned Vedantic master and teacher par excellence, Swami Chinmayananda. On 16 January 2017, CVV was notified as a Deemed-to-be-University under the 'de novo' category.
CVV has been established as a torchbearer for the preservation of Indian cultural heritage and its knowledge traditions, through higher education. Founded on the principles of Spirituality, Purity, Practicality and Innovation, CVV’s core mission is to blend the ancient and time-tested wisdom of India with present-day knowledge fields. It is breaking new grounds where necessary and adopting the merits of all that has come before but always leaning towards the winds of innovation. Striking a careful balance between the old and the new, the University offers common streams of programmes with unique electives and supplementary subjects with an intent to mould the youngsters of today into well rounded, responsible, value grounded young adults who contribute to the nation, and the world at large. The University has commenced its intensive campus development in a 40-acre plot acquired nearby in Veliyanad, Ernakulam.
The Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth functions from two campuses: the headquarters referred to as the Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula campus in Kochi, Kerala, and the Chinmaya Naada Bindu Gurukula campus in Kolwan, near Pune.
Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula campus
The headquarters is at the Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula (CEG) campus, in Kochi, Kerala. Set in an extensive compound of ten acres in Kerala’s lush, green countryside, amidst temple shrines and lily ponds, the CEG campus offers both an energised vibrancy that inspires students to strive for excellence and a serene ambience that attracts aspirants who come in search of peace and solitude from the world over.
Chinmaya Naada Bindu Gurukula Campus
Nestled inside the 70-acre precincts of Chinmaya Vibhooti, the vision centre of Chinmaya Mission, which is located at the foothills of the stately Sahyadri mountain range in the quiet village of Kolwan, near Pune, the Chinmaya Naada Bindu Gurukula (CNBG) campus offers a serene setting for students, performers, artists and scholars from all over the world.
