From 1996-1998, after successfully completing the rigorous Vedanta course, he was posted as the Acharya at the Chinmaya Mission of Pune. There he directed many spiritual classes and camps for people of all ages, from children to adults. His love of spirituality spread beyond Pune through discourses and Jnana Yajnas held in nearby towns.

Upholding the Scriptural teachings to serve humanity in all ways, Swamiji was very active in the Chinmaya Mission Relief Group that assisted the cyclone hit areas of Orissa and he played an engaging role in helping the flood victims of the state. He then transferred as the Acharya to the Chinmaya Inteational Residential School in Coimbatore. There he represented the Mission as the school's ex officio of management and took a close interest in implementing the specially developed educational program in the school. He also acted as a counsellor to students, parents and staff and had numerous opportunities to conduct spiritual classes for teachers, as well as students from all grades levels.
