Chinmaya Mission Beaumont covers Texas's Golden Triangle, which is comprised of three cities: Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Orange.

In the mid-1980s, Dr. Rajaram Patil started attending Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda's talks and introduced Chinmaya Mission to several families in the area. He soon invited Acharyas Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty to conduct satsangs and Bala Vihar classes in his residence. The programs were discontinued, as the community was too small at that time. With the continuing rise in the Indian population, an Indian association was soon formed in southeast Texas, and a community center was built by 1995.

When Subrah and Shyamala Cheruvu moved into the Golden Triangle in 1996, with the Lord's grace and Pujya Gurudev's blessings, various community members offered support and began Chinmaya Bala Vihar for children and Chinmaya Study Group for adults, which led to the formation of Chinmaya Mission Beaumont. To date, classes are offered throughout the year except over the summer.

A formal working committee was formed and approved by Pujya Guruji in 2006. CM Beaumont hosts 2-3 jnana yajnas annually. Over the years, many CM acharyas have visited and blessed the community with their yajnas and satsangs, including Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide, Pujya Swamini Saradapriyananda; Swamis Ishwarananda, Shantananda, Nikhilananda, Sharanananda, Prakashananda, and Sarveshananda; Brahmachari Prabodh Chaitanya; and Acharya Gaurang Nanavaty.

Over the years, CM Beaumont helped fund the construction of a CM orphanage in Andhra Pradesh and Sidhabari.

With the blessings of Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, the center incorporated in 2008. CM Beaumont purchased property and began construction in 2012 for its new ashram with a temple, hall, and classrooms for CM activities. The new ashram, named by Pujya Guruji as "Chinmaya Shripati," will be inaugurated by him in June 2013.
