A New Book on Ramakrishna Mission and Math
The Story of Ramakrishna Mission
Since Ramakrishna Math, the monastic order brought into existence in 1886 by Sri Ramakrishna the Prophet of the Modern Age, is inseparable from Ramakrishna Mission, the story of Ramakrishna Mission is also the story of Ramakrishna Math. As a matter of fact, the book is a comprehensive survey of the whole Ramakrishna Movement which includes lakhs of lay devotees and hundreds of non-affiliated centres.
In this book you read:
* how a handful of educated young men, inspired by the ideals of renunciation, service and devotion to their great teacher Sri Ramakrishna, started a new monastic order in a dilapidated building, and how it later grew into two worldwide organizations which together have 162 branch centres in India and other countries;
* a comprehensive account of the schools, colleges, hospitals, dispensaries, tribal development centres, large-scale relief operations, etc conducted by Ramakrishna Math and Mission and the contributions the twin organizations have made in educational, medical and other fields of social service;
The story of Ramakrishna Mission is a massive volume of 1260 pages studded with more than 130 colour photos. But, to make it affordable to many, the book has been priced Rs 350/- (US $7) only.
