Shravanam or attentive listening to scriptures : Attending talks by various visiting CM Swamijis as well as being a regular participant of the various sessions conducted by Sushmaji & Sivaji helps introduce & reinforce concepts of Vedanta.
Mananam or contemplating on the knowledge heard (Study Groups): Concepts are best understood when discussed in a interactive forum, which is what study groups provide.
What is a study group?
A group of 5-15 adults engaged in the discussion of Vedantic topics based on the curriculum of books as prescribed by our masters.
Why does one need to attend a study group?

- Ideas & concepts get better understood and assimilated when discussed in a group
- Encourages group bonding in holistic manner
- Forum not available elsewhere

Mere listening does not help. These ideas are to be reflected upon deeply and digested slowly. This process is hastened only when you discuss what you have studied with others. This is not a Chinmaya methodology; it is the most ancient Vedantic tradition of study.H. H. Swami Chinmayananda
