Swami Chinmayananda made it a priority to inspire the youth of India and give them a clear vision and direction for life. He believed that it was through the youth that national progress could best be achieved. In order to inspire the youngsters of India and show them the possibilities of the higher life, Swami Chinmayananda explained the ancient wisdom of the Bhagavad-Gita in modern scientific terms. His contemporary style to teaching, full of humour and examples from our everyday life, brings these sublime teachings within our reach. These teachings are as relevant, fresh and inspiring today as they were in his time.
