Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK) and Chinmaya Setu Kari (CSK)

  • Is religion relevant to young people like you and me?
  • Does spirituality hold any answers for problems in the modern age?

Swami Chinmayananda’s answer was a definite yes! He said that it is far more relevant for us to understand the goal of life and how to live it when we are young, rather than when we are old and life has largely passed us by.

Designed to support deep and authentic exploration of life’s biggest questions, Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK) and Chinmaya Setu Kari (CSK) are the global young and evolving adult arms of Chinmaya Mission. In Boston, our CHYK (17 – 28 years) and CSK (29 – 40 years) groups often meet together to share insights and to participate in seva.
