Men of great wisdom, like Pujya Gurudeva Chinmayananda, descend upon our plane out of kindness and a keen desire to share the highest truths. Vedanta, literally means the ultimate end or culmination of Knowledge (Vedas). Many great Rishis, Masters and Acharyas have endeavored to bring us closer to this Absolute Truth. Swami Chinmayananda was the first of them to uplift any seeker to easily access this wisdom. He spent
decades of tirelessly simplifying this abstract Truth to guide our minds, distracted in many ways.
Although many of his works are available in books, audio and video, our current lifestyle still adds a touch
barrier to tap into this wisdom. Today, technology comes to our rescue, thanks to the relentless efforts of Chinmaya Mission Houston and the Chinmaya Jivan Darshan team under the wise leadership and vision of Pujya Acharya Darshana Aunty. Building on their experience and the runaway success of the Gita 365 and Upanishad Daily apps, they have raised the bar again, providing easy access to this Vedanta treasure.
On Pujya Gurudeva’s birthday on August 3, 2022, a new app, Vedanta Daily, was made available through Google Playstore and Apple Appstore. This app strives to bring a simplified daily dose of Swami Chinmayananda’s five great contributions – Logic of Spirituality, Sadhana Panchakam, Atma Bodha, Meditate with the Master,
and Voyage of the Master.
Through clever use of animation, videos, and simple language, the app guides the seeker to seek permanent happiness through the logic of spirituality. Adi Shankara’s Sadhana Panchakam may be concise in five slokas, but Swami Chinmayananda’s commentary explains the values in detail. The journey continues with Atma Bodha revealing the nature of our true Self. The goals defined and clarified by the above three are made easily achievable
by the step-by-step guidance in “Meditate with the Master”. This seemingly impossible journey is made inspiring by Pujya Gurudeva’s own life, and it offers exemplary hope for refreshing and renewing our inner spiritual journey through “Journey of the Master”.
Darshana Aunty’s experience and sincere desire to bring Gurudeva’s wisdom in a simple and clear form ensures that Vedanta Daily is easily understandable for any honest seeker. Not content with its past laurels, the Chinmaya Jivan Darshan team is inspired to bring Darshana Aunty’s vision and Gurudeva’s wisdom to every seeker’s phone at no cost. The effort of extracting Swamiji’s works and distilling them into a dose of Vedanta in a matter of minutes is
monumental. Seekers receive enough knowledge to grow their spiritual fire; and guiding them to know more about the works of Pujya Gurudeva through the Vedanta Daily app is transformative and effective.
