Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to inaugurate the 125th anniversary of the birth of the Ramakrishna Mission (RKM) on May 1.
According to a Maharaj of Belur Math Swami Sudipananda, an invitation will be sent to the Prime Minister to inaugurate the celebration in Kolkata.
“The celebration will be held nationwide across the entire Ramkrishna Mission. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is close to Belur Mat for which we will ask him to inaugurate the celebration. The celebration will be done in collaboration with the central government and will start on May 1, 2022 and continue until May 1, 2023,” Sudipananda said.
Notably, to mark Youth Day, Prime Minister Modi inaugurated the celebration at Belur Math on January 13, 2020 on the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda and also spent the night at the guesthouse inside Belur Math.
According to Ramakrishna Mission sources, not just in the country, but the celebration will take place worldwide wherever there is a branch of the Ramkrishna Mission.
It is pertinent to mention that on May 1, 1897, Swami Vivekananda, a disciple of Ramakrishna, opened the Ramakrishna Mission with the vision of serving the people “Bahujan Hitaya, Bahujan Sukhaye”. Since then, the Ramkrishna mission serves people during natural calamities and other problems faced by ordinary people.
