It is now nearly 107 years since Swami Vivekananda, the chief disciple of Shri Ramakrishna established the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission with its headquarters at Belur Math, District Howrah, West Bengal, India to propagate the teachings of his Master. These teachings which constitute the core of India's oldest philosophy, Vedanta, stress, among other things, the equal validity of all religions, the potential divinity of man and the service of man as service unto God. The Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission have been serving the community by running schools, colleges, hospitals and orphanages spread all over India and abroad through their more than 113 centers.
Started in 1985 the Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Narainpur along with its 5 Service Centers inside Abujhmarh jungle villages of Chhattisgarh State, has been serving tribal brothers and sisters of the area who have silently borne in isolation several decades of oppression and neglect.
This Mission Ashrama is a branch centre of the world-wide Ramakrishna Math & Ramakrishna Mission founded by Swami Vivekananda in 1897 with its headquarters at Belur Math, Howrah, West Bengal.
