Photographer's Note

This is a usual atmosphere in Ramkrishna Math, Swamiji is reading Geeta and in the background we have the idol of Sri Ramkrishna and picture of Swami Vivekananda.

The Ramakrishna Mission embodies the philosophy of Sri Ramakrishna of seeking God in man by rendering service to the needy, the destitute and the dying and to give spiritual succour to the restless in search of comfort.

In 1897, Swami Vivekananda founded a non- proselytizing religious organisation that had two wings - the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission. Both of these organizations embody Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa's philosophy of seeking God in man by rendering service to the needy, the destitute and the dying and to give spiritual succour to the restless in search of comfort.

The only acknowledged teacher is Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa. All others, including Swami Vivekananda, have served or serve in the Master's name. The headquarters of the Math and Mission are at Belur in Howrah, West Bengal.

The Light inside the Math was not enough and I do not have any tripod with me. I was difficult for me to keep the Sharpness for this picture and to get the reflection on the floor.
