Chinmaya Vidyalaya instilled the basic values and principles in me and the teachings from Bhagavad Gita that I learned in various dicourses by His Holy Highenss Swami Chinmayanandaji, when he visitde the school and from other teachers, has stayed on with me and helped me surmount various difficult situations in life and take decisions whenever I have had a dilemma. Unlike other educational institution that I studied, the school left a mark in me by blending spirituality with leaning. The school environment, my fellow students and teachers always made me look forward to an interesting day, everyday. There was a good balance of studies and extra curriculra activities like watching movies like Adi Sankaracharaya.
