Inspired by the life and teaching of his illustrious Master, Sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa Deva, the prophet of love and peace Swami Vivekananda, the
patriot-saint of India deeply felt that man is the best manifestation of god on
earth, and therefore, service to mankind is the best form of god worship. With a
view to propagating this glorious message to the world and demonstrating its
truth in practical life he founded in May 1897 the Ramakrishna Mission.
In course of time the Mission developed into an organization of international
fame and importance, and extended its activities all over the world through a
large number of branch centers.

established on the first September, 1944 as an Orphanage with 37 boys rendered
orphan by the great Bengal Famine of 1942-1943. The Home also extended its
activities to the field of education and built a big educational complex around
it with a number of institutions for general, technical, vocational as well as
