Ramakrishna Math Bangalore – The Virtue of a Spiritual Society

Our next destination was scheduled to visit Ramakrishna Math Bangalore. It is an organization that was  brought into existence by the Modern Age Prophet of Bengal, Sri Ramakrishna. He was a great saint of  19th century. I was excited to see this place as I have witnessed number of monasteries in my present  journey of life before, but observing a Math and that of Sri Ramakrishna was simply a dynamic experience for me. The universal spiritual movement of the saint was regarded as the great contribution  towards the society. The institution is working calmly for more than 100 years to regenerate the society  with new lessons of humanity.

All the people from their respective society are welcomed here with equality and true sense of well  being. The principles and ideals of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa show the right path to the followers and  the society. The place is built with simplicity and serenity. People who want some time for self solitude  can come to this place anytime. The ideal on which the spiritual beliefs of the organization stand is the philosophy known as Vedanta, which is the ancient religious philosophy of India. Expounded by Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda, the teachings are till now known to be unified, purified and energized by them. The Math was established in the month of August and in the year 1906. The foundation stone of the edifice was laid by Swami Abhedananda.

Daily morning pujas and evening ‘bhajans’ are held to purify the souls of the people visiting to take part in the ‘bhajans’ in the temple. Various speeches and discourses are imparted in the languages of English and Kannada at Vivekananda Centenary Memorial Auditorium. Birth Anniversaries of Sri Sarda Devi, Swami Vivekananda, Sri Ramakrishna and other spiritual leaders are celebrated in this missionary. Spiritual festivals like Sri Durga Puja, Ganesha Chaturthi, Janmastami, Buddha Purnima, Guru Purnima, etc., are some the days of celebration in the Math and these festivals attract a large number of people. The Math also has the mission towards rural people and those who are below poverty line. Several activities are performed for their better lives. In short, Ramakrishna Math Bangalore is regenerating a
totally spiritual society with a mission of well being.
