Chinmaya Mission Peoria

Chinmaya Mission Peoria started offering Chinmaya Bala Vihar classes (as a satellite center of Chinmaya Mission Chicago) for children 4 to 18 year olds in fall of 2010 under the guidance of Swami Sharanandaji, Archarya Chinmaya Mission Chicago.

Please take a look at the weekly activity schedule to appreciate the wide range of services being provided at Chinmaya Mission Peoria.

This success is mainly due to Gurudev's blessings, the dedicated and enthusiastic seva of the members of the Chinmaya Mission Peoria families, the Acharyas and teachers, and last but not least, the continued encouragement and support rendered by the numerous devotees of Gurudev.
