Why RK Mission maligning their own History ?

via Vinod Menon published on August 24, 2010

Some influential monks of the RK mission about 60 years back manipulated their own history and removed the name of Swami Nirmalananda (Tulasi Maharaj) from the list of direct monastic disciples of Sree Ramakrishna. Many devotees and admirers of RK mission had made 100s of representations to the Mission authorities but they are keeping a deadly silence on this issue too. I had sent an email letter few days back to RK Mission marking copy to all missions centers across the globe. But to yet to receive any response. I reproduce the letter as below.

Respected Dear President Maharaj

Please accept my Sastanga Pranams.

This is to request for your kind initiative to include Swami Nirmalananda’s ( Tulsi Maharaj) name among the direct monastic disciples of Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa Deva.

All facts /regrettable incidents related to this issue are known to all of us in the Sri Ramakrishna family. Its time to forget all the past unfortunate episodes and I would humbly request you to do the needful so that Tulsi Maharaj’s name is henceforth mentioned as a
direct disciple of Bhagavan in all literatures published by RK Math & Mission,

Last but not least – our beloved Swamiji ( Swami Vivekananda) was also know for His passion for history. Hence, let we followers stop maligning our own organization’s history.

I would also take this opportunity to thank you and all members of the RK Math & Mission for mentioning Tulasi Maharaj as a direct monastic disciple in the centenary issue of the Gospel published by RK Math Chennai.

I look forward for your kind response.

With Pranams
