Our Ideology

Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission are non-political, non-sectarian spiritual organizations founded by Swami Vivekananda in the name of his Guru Shri Ramakrishna, who is regarded as a prophet of modern age. It has set in motion a universal spiritual movement having its headquarters at Belur Math, (Dist. Howrah, West Bengal – India).

Aim: Practice and preaching of the eternal religion as embodied in the lives and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Ma Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda.

Motto: ‘Atmano mokshartham jagad hitaya cha’. ‘For one’s own salvation and for the welfare of the world’.


  1. God realization is the ultimate Goal of life.
  2. Service to man is Service to God.
  3. Synthesis of Four Yoga.
  4. Harmony of Religions.
  5. Renunciation and Service.

Inspired by the above ideals, the monks and lay devotees of the Ramakrishna Order serves millions of people through various spiritual, cultural, educational, medical, relief – rehabilitation and humanitarian activities without any distinctions of caste, creed and religions.


In the emblem the wavy waters represent Karma Yoga; the lotus flower represents Bhakti Yoga; the rising sun represents Jnana Yoga; the coiled serpent represents Raja Yoga; the Swan represents the Supreme Self. Swami Vivekananda regarded synthesis of these four yogas as the ideal of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission.

This emblem was designed by Swami Vivekananda.
