Ramakrishna Mission

Ramakrishan Mission,Gautam Marg,C-Scheme,Jaipur,(0141-5118804/2228704) (rkmjaipur@bsnl.in) A major center in Rajasthan was started in April 1988 on the auspicious day of Akshay Tritiya according to the cherished wish of Swami Vivekananda.Since then the center has been serving the people through different philanthropic,humanitarian,educational and cultural activities. The center has a small prayer hall,an allopathic and homeopathic dispensary,a library,a reading room and monk’s quarters.

Swamiji graced Jaipur by his august presence thrice.In 1893 he came in the company of Shri Ajit Singhji Bahadur,the Raja of Khetri, and stayed in the Khetri House near Chandpole.

Holy Mother,Sri Ma Sarada Devi,also sanctified Jaipur when she came here to have darshan of Sri Govind Dev ji.

As  the present prayer hall is too small it is proposed to build a 5 Crore Rupee Temple with a seating capacity of 630  persons.The entire project cost has to come from the donations(I.T. Exempt u/s.80G.) of the generous public.

Mail your donations by Cheque or D.D. to Ramkrishan Mission,Jaipur.

The Temple is walking distance from Karan’s Guesthouse

Jaipur Life

Jaipur (IV)

Here in Jaipur the old and new worlds meet;

The forts,the temples,and the palaces

Look out on legislative offices

And schools and hospitals.This wide grave street

Worn by three centuries of slippered feet

And tripping pads of camels branches out

In roads that go impartially to meet

Old pleasure-gardens and new factories.

Here is a future growing from past beauty

Owning past inspiration-and a duty

To all men of all trades to build a city

Known for flourish of its industries;

Its roads made smooth for ordinary men

And knowledge climbing stairs to soar again.
