The Servants of Shri Bhagawan Ramakrishna

    Brother, if there is no one to help you, then send information immediately to the servants of Shri Bhagavan Ramakrishna at Belur Math. There will be no dearth of help that is physically possible. ...

                                            - Culled from  "The Plague Manifesto' published by Swami Vivekananda


    These are the soothing words from Swami Vivekananda at the time of plague in Calcutta (Kolkata) more than hundred years ago.   At the behest of Swamiji, Sister Nivedita and the monks of the Belur Math dedicated themselves to the service of the plague-afflicted persons.   And this tradition continues.  Yes, at the time of dire needs such as flood, famine, tsunami, fire accidents, and epidemic, Ramakrishna Mission offers its services in a humble way.  Of late, Covid-19 pandemic has been added to the list.  Yes,  the monastics and the devotees of the Ramakrishna Order are serving the people by distributing them Covid-19 kits, rice and groceries to the under-privileged.  Sri Ramakrishna Math, Kanchipuram has distributed rice and groceries to the people in the localities such as Sevilimedu, Keelambi, Eenjambakkam, Ponnidampatii, Ganapatipuram, etc.  near Kanchipuram.  These are the localities which don't attract the public gaze.  Following are the photos which depict such services.
