CVP (Chinmaya Vision Programme)
The Chinmaya vision program is what makes the Chinmaya Education Institutions 'Schools with a difference'. It concretizes Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda's vision of education.
"yathaa drishti tatha srishti"
As the vision so the world appears to us.
If man's vision is narrow and disturbed, the world also seems filled with strife. If the vision is broad and love- filled, so too is his world.
Chinmaya Vision Program (CVP) was born to enshrine the philosophy of education developed by Pujya Gurudev Swami Chimayananda in the heart of every growing child to bring out the best in him or her. The child is the focal point of this program. The program also embraces the school management, teachers and parents. Through them, the light of this vision spreads to the society, country, and the world at large.
The Chinmaya Vision Program can be identified under 4 heads:
It aims at the overall enfoldment and gentle blossoming of the child at the physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual levels of his / her personality.
It implies good health and proper growth of children leading to the optimum expression of their overall well-being.It includes physical fitness, nutrition, hygiene, personal grooming, health education, health assessment, prevention of diseases and their treatment.
It aims at making the child an emotionally balanced person. It thereby helps him/her to live in harmony with himself/herself and the world. It includes emotional expansion, handling emotions, handling relationships, gender specific education, mental health assessment and counseling.
Man has infinite intellectual potential. Under this head, CVP aims to help the child manifest his/her inherent intellectual capacities and enhance existing ones. It includes intellectual kindling, independent thinking, management skills, aesthetics, intellectual assessment and guidance.
Man is potentially divine. Spiritual Development enables the child to discover his/her inherent divinity and manifest it. It is achieved through value education, value based education, philosophy, meditation techniques, yoga etc.
Culture is more than just art forms,festivals and rituals. Culture is the very way of life of a race and its thinking, which makes it unique and special. Under this head the child is given a wide exposure to the various aspects of our culture, cultural awareness and appreciation of the vast literacy, artistic and scientific heritage of India, explanations of customs and traditions and cultural motivation through hobbies and projects etc.
This vital area of focus includes education in citizenship, civic consciousness, fostering pride in being Indian and vital national concerns such as unity in diversity. It aims at creating dedicated and committed citizens who take real pride in serving the nation.
Universal Outlook refers to an appreciation, sensitivity and commitment to universal issues. After years of mindless pillage of nature, the world needs to come back to a universal holistic view of life. A universal outlook helps the child view himself/herself as a responsible citizen of the world (including world issues), live in harmony with creation (environment education and the synthesis between science and religion) as well as become aware of being an intrinsic part of the macrocosm. The Chinmaya Vidyalayas are truly "schools with a difference." ‘Keep smiling’ is our Vidyalaya’s Motto. We believe that our children should be moulded by this motto. We hope they will lead a balanced life under all circumstances. Whether in joy or sorrow, in success or failure, in honor or dishonor, in prosperity or adversity, their calmness of mind should express itself in an eternal smile.
“Courage is graceful and dignified. I is the very essence of God in man, Surcharge yourself with His Grace. Be active and intellectually adventurous boys and girls by participating in all the programs of the Vidyalaya”. Love! Love! Love! H.H. Swami Chinmayananda
