Since 1999, members of Chinmaya Mission Chicago have worshipped in civic centers and schools, which made this weekend's opening of the group's new center feel more like a homecoming than an open house.

"This is how it feels when you buy a new home," said Indu Sriram, of Buffalo Grove. "Having this gives us a sense of belonging. It is a place where you can nourish your own values. I feel very good because of it."

The Chinmaya Mission Chicago unveiled its newest center, Yamunotri, this weekend.
