"What is Chinmaya Jnana Yagna?"
Jnana Yajnas are series of public discourses on a Vedantic scripture given by an Acharya of the Chinmaya Mission.
The term yajna means to offer oblations to fire and Jnana means knowledge. Offering of our ignorance to the fire and kindling the light of knowledge is what is the import of this term.
CMA conducts 2-3 jnana yagnas of visiting Acharyas every year.

Krishna mela is the annual day event at CMA. It is aimed at exploring topics and themes that enhance the Bala vihar curriculum and increase the bonding of the kids and families within CMA.
The concept of 'Krishna Mela', named after the "Sundar Krishna" deity at our ashram, was started in CMA in 2015 as part of the centenary celebrations for Pujya Gurudev (Swami Chinmayanandaji). A full day event with booths, performances and delicious home cooked food for the whole family to enjoy; with all volunteers working in the "Unto Him Our Best" spirit.
Given the space in the ashram hall, the attention span of the audience and the number of Bala vihar kids and classes, we have followed this model for stage performances.
There are 5 shows, each 1-1.5hrs long, allocated to a time slot. Each show has performances by 6 grades.
Each show explores the same script, but has a different set of classes (prek - 12th) performing
Performances are based on a specific theme and this year's theme is "Success"
