Ramakrishna Mission

Ramakrishna Mission was founded in the year 1897 in India by Swami Vivekananda, the foremost disciple of Sri Ramakrishna. It is a non-political, non-sectarian spiritual organization which has been engaged in various forms of humanitarian and service activities. At present, there are 176 centres around the world.

Ramakrishna Mission in Malaysia officially came into existence in the year 2001. Its President is the monk of the Ramakrishna Order: Headquarters at Belur Math, India. The centre’s activities are guided by these inspiring words of Swami Vivekananda:

“If a man’s wants can be removed for an hour, it is helping him indeed; if his wants can be removed for a year, it will be more help to him; but if his wants can be removed forever, it is surely the greatest help that can be given to him. Spiritual knowledge is the only thing that can destroy our miseries forever; any other knowledge satisfies wants only for a time. It is only with the knowledge of the spirit that the faculty of want is annihilated for ever; so helping man spiritually is the highest help that can be given to him.”
