Baranagore Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama
The Holy Trio
Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Baranagore has become an embodiment of the ideology ‘service and welfare through education’, since its initiation in 1912, on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya. Since then, through selflessness and service to the mankind, this organization so successfully caters the spiritual genre, convened by Lord Sri Ramakrishna, in every possible way.
The foundation stone of this ashrama, as a ‘Brahmananda Balak-Ashrama’, was laid by Sri Jogindranath Thakur, an eminent freedom-fighter and disciple of Srimat Swami Brahmanandaji Maharaj, the first president of Ramakrishna order. Later it was shifted into a one storied building adjacent to Jaikrishna Mitra Kalibari at Kutighat in the name of, “Baranagar Ramakrishna Ashrama for Orphan”. Then, in 1924 the Ashrama was acquired by Belur Math as a branch centre and hence, renamed as “Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama , Baranagore”. On February 20, 1928, by the patronage of the late zaminders of Narali, Jessore, the Ashrama procured a land of 8 bigha and 8 chhatak beside Gopal Lal Tagore Road. It was the same Akshaya Tritiya on 11 May, 1929 the Ashrama was shifted to the plot.
Be done by harmonizing the Vedas, the Bible, and the Koran.”
This wisdom of Swamiji is our guide. We must say along with Swami Vivekananda,
Give away, ne’er turn to ask in return,
Should there be the wealth treasured in thy heart.
Aye, born heir to the infinite thou art,
Within the heart is the ocean of Love,
“Give,” “ Give away”-whoever asks return,
His ocean dwindles down to the mere drop.
