Ramakrishna Mission, Vijayawada
Vivekananda Human Excellence : An Appeal
Dear Well wishers,
Ramakrishna Mission, Vijayawada is a branch centre of world renowned Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission having its headquarters at Belur Math, Howrah – West Bengal. This centre has two locations one in Vijayawada city and the other is in Sitanagaram under nearby Tadepalli Municipality.
In 1956, Sri Bapiraju and a group of ardent devotees of Sri Ramakrishna made their sincere efforts to start a centre in Vijayawada which was fulfilled in 1965. They formed an association called Ramakrishna Seva Samiti and established the present City Centre. Later, a new centre was opened at Sitanagaram, Tadepalli district. Further, the devoted, earnest and enthusiastic group succeeded in affiliating both these centres as the full-fledged branch of Ramakrishna Math and Mission in 2001. AT Sitanagaram along with other service activities two High Schools (English Medium and Telugu Medium) have been running since many years.
The City Centre has been conducting prayers, bhajans, religious discourses, sale of religious literature, study circles. Presently, we intend to develop this centre into a educational complex. In order to improve and expand the services of the Mission to the public we need to build a new structure called “VIVEKANANDA HUMAN EXCELLANCE”(VHE) in place of the existing long-old buildings. VHE will accommodate stipulated courses with regard to the following :
We appeal to the generous public to donate liberally for the early completion of the Project. In this connection, we would like to reiterate that all our service activities depend entirely on the generous donors, devotees, institutions and well-wishers. We do not receive any grant from the government – either Central or the State. Hence, we appeal to you for help financially or otherwise in serving the humanity.
Yours in the service of the Lord,
