About Ramakrishna Math

Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission were established in 1897 by Swami Vivekananda, a disciple of Sri Ramakrishna.

It operates educational institutions, hospitals, relief and rehabilitation efforts and hosts spiritual and cultural events. Swami Vivekananda believed that service to the poor and needy was the highest form of worship and this philosophy underpins the activities of the organization.
