About Tapovan Prasad
Tapovan Prasad is the international monthly magazine of Chinmaya Mission. It enlists/shares about all the activities of the Mission and presents inspiring articles that kindle an individual’s inherent spirituality.
Through its motto, taken from the Bhagavad-gita: ‘O Kaunteya, know for certain – my devotee will never perish’ (IX/3), the magazine has been fulfilling its main aim of conveying the eternal message of Indian scriptures as taught by Swami Chinmayananda, to generations of people. Absorbing the earlier publications – Tyagi and Usha, Tapovan Prasad was launched in January 1963, to fulfill the growing needs of Chinmaya Mission. Shifting base from Mumbai to Chennai, the magazine’s readership, popularity and stature has grown over the years under the constant guidance of publisher Smt. Leela Nambiar and the dynamic leadership of many eminent editors.Tapovan Prasad is a potent capsule providing in-depth reading, points for quiet reflection, anecdotes and stories of realised masters, answers to nagging questions and doubts – in short a regular monthly dose for spiritual introspection and growth. It also keeps members abreast of the diverse events and activities of Chinmaya Mission all around the world, providing them with details of forthcoming yajnas, camps, and so on.
