Ramakrishna Mission (Ceylon Branch)

The Ramakrishna Mission (Ceylon Branch) is a charitable organisation, engaged in spiritual and social welfare activities. It conducts extensive work in healthcare, disaster relief, rural management, tribal welfare, elementary and higher education and culture.

"My whole ambition in life is to set in motion machinery which will bring noble ideas to the door of everybody, and then let men and women settle their own fate. Let them know what our forefathers as well as other nations have thought on the most momentous questions of life. We are to put the chemicals together; the crystallisation will be done by nature according to her laws. Keep the motto before you 'elevation of the masses without injuring their religion' "

"Atmano mokshartham jagad hitaya cha"

"For one's own salvation, and for the welfare of the world"

"The wavy waters in the picture are symbolic of Karma, the lotus of Bhakti, and the rising-sun of Jnana. The encircling serpent is indicative of Yoga and awakened Kundalini Shakti, while the swan in the picture stands for Paramatman. Therefore, the ideal of the picture is that by the union of Karma, Jnana, Bhakti and Yoga, the vision of the Paramatman is obtained"
