Dear Devotee,Namaste.

This is an invitation, giving an opportunity to all of you, tohave a blessed share in the building of the Sri Ramakrishna Temple and the Ashrama buildings.Ramakrishna Math, Haripad, Kerala, started by Srimat Swami NirmalanandaMaharaj in 1913, is the first Sri Ramakrishna Math in the whole of Kerala.This Ashrama has been blessed by the stay of Revered Srimat SwamiBrahmananda Maharaj (Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna’s spiritual son ) addingsanctity o this place .

It’s been a 100 years.. and time has taken its’ toll. The Ashrama buildingis in a highly dilapidated condition, unfit for use. The entire centre hasto be reconstructed from the beginning. By the grace of Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna, new Ashrama enclosure has beenproposed at this very place.

We have envisaged a grand temple, rooms for service / welfare activities,dining hall, quarters for serving and visiting monks, an office room andfree reading room and Library.The estimated expenditure for this divine construction is Rs.5,00,00,000.00( Rs.5 Crores). This cost has been divided in to 1,00,000/- blocks. We havecome up with a proposal of collecting Rs.1000.00 each from 50,000 (50thousand) devotees , towards meeting the outlay , providing these devoteesan invaluable share in posterity, by taking part in the building of the SriRamakrishna Math, Haripad.

You can involve your relatives and friends alsoin this holy project.We earnestly request devotees to wholeheartedly support us in this sacredmission aiding us in the early completion of this project. We also requestyou, dear devotee, to spread the word – recommend your friends and kin andhelp them partake of this divine bliss!

By the grace of Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna and Holy Mother Sri Sarada Deviand Swami Vivekananda let us all realize that our hearts will always befilled with divine bliss flowing from the “ Holy feet of Sri Hari (Haripada)” our beloved Sri Ramakrishnadeva.

    Ramakrishna Math
    Not another ‘grand temple’ again please. A simple comfortable place for devotees to worship and gather should be the idea, not some grandiose palace. Sri Ramakrishna would be the first person to not want such ostentatious structures. He would much rather have the organisers build schools or clinics or canteens that would take care of people and provide them with food and education. And that is the pressing need of Hindus at the moment, not another ‘show-off’ temple.

    Ram Krishna Math
    Agree with Vilasni. If Mughals don’t destroy these ‘grand temples’ then some hurricane does. But knowledge, imparted in the souls, cannot be destroyed, neither by Mughals nor by cyclones and earth quakes. So please, build simple accommodation and many, many schools, teaching the knowledge of the Sanatan Dharma. And please, don’t claim not to be a Hindu organisation, for obviously, this has not helped, since you’re turning to Hindus for financial aid. The followers of Lord Buddha started a new religion, thus weakening Sanatan Dharma. The followers of Bhagvan Shri Ram Krishna Paramhans should not make the same mistake.

    If the news item asking for devotee participation in building of the temple had included how the donations have to be made and the Bank details, it would have been better. Kindly publish the relevant details as soon as possible please.
