Chinmaya Ramdoot, earlier called as BBNJ center was blessed and  initiated on January 2nd, 2000 at Basking Ridge in one of Chinmaya Sevak’s  residence. Started by few families, we grew very quickly. BBNJ center activities were then moved to Bridgewater High school to accommodate more classrooms for Balavihar.

Under the guidance of Swami Shantananda, our center activities are now spearheaded by senior Sevaks and Volunteers. For more than a decade many camps, study classes and cultural programs catering to the spiritual needs of all age groups were conducted by the balavihar families in our centre.

Ramdoot has been serving as the satellite centre of Chinmaya Mission Tri State Centre (CMTC) activities at Basking Ridge/Bridgewater and has been carrying forward the noble work for nearly two decades to realize the Missions motto: “To give maximum happiness to maximum number for maximum time”.

All activities of Ramdoot are focused on fulfilling the vision-”To provide to individuals from any background, the wisdom of Vedanta and the practical means for spiritual growth and happiness, enabling them to become positive contributors to society”.

The centre conducts various activities like regular Satsangs,  “JnanaYagnas”-lecture series on Hindu scriptural texts, spiritual camps for all age groups, music events, and celebration of festivals in traditional manner. Regular study classes for children, youth and adults are also conducted to make life happier and the world better based on the guidance from Indian scriptures. We hope to meet you soon at Ramdoot.
