The Mission Objectives was to preach those truths which Sri Ramakrishna, has, for the good of humanity, preached and demonstrated by practical application in his own life, and to help others to put these truths into practice in their lives for their temporal, mental, and spiritual advancement.

The Mission has established many schools and colleges in India in which young men and women belonging to every social status, community and linguistic group, are educated through the medium of English and other regional languages. These institutions are a part of the Mission efforts to share in the country’s educational undertakings.

Emblem of Ramakrishna Mission[edit]

Designed and explained by Swami Vivekananda given in his own words: The wavy waters in the picture are symbolic of Karma; the lotus, of Bhakti; and the rising-sun, of Jnana. The encircling serpent is indicative of Yoga and the awakened Kundalini Shakti, while the swan in the picture stands for Paramatman (Supreme Self). Therefore, the idea of the picture is that by the union of Karma, Jnana, Bhakti and Yoga, the vision of Paramatman is obtained.

Vasanti Durga Mahotsav[edit]

Children of Ramakrishna Mission celebrate annually the Vasanti Durga Mahotsav on its premises in Sidhgora. Apart from religious discourses, kirtan, bhog and arti are also organised.[2]

The Morning Prayer[edit]

For Unity of Faiths: May He Who is the Father in Heaven of the Christians, Holy One of the Jews, Allah of the Muhammadans, Buddha of the Buddhists, Tao of the Chinese, Ahura Mazda of the Zoroastrians and Brahman of the Hindus lead us from the unreal to the Real, from darkness to light, from disease and death to immortality. May the All-Loving Being manifest Himself unto us, and grant us abiding understanding and all-consuming divine love. Peace, Peace. Peace be unto all.
