Dear Devotees & Friends,

Ramakrishna Math & Mission, Belur Math declared open a Math centre at Uttarkashi, an ancient holy town in the Garhwal Himalayas on 20th Oct 2017. There was already a small dwelling house, named as Ramakrishna Kutir since 1963, where sadhus of our Order used to stay for intense Tapasya in the traditional monastic way, begging food from outside and living a simple austere life. Swami Turiyananda, a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna spent a year or so in Uttarkashi during his wondering days. Impressed by the Swami’s overwhelming personality and knowing him to be a disciple of Sri Ramakrishna the Raja of Tehri donated a piece of land to him at Uttarkashi and the then Mahant of Kailas Ashrama built a small hut for him. That was the sowing of the seed of future Ramakrishna Math in Uttarkashi. 

In view of expanding Swami Vivekananda’s ideal of service and spirituality among the masses we plan to purchase some land measuring at least one acre in Harsil Valley, 75 Kms. off Uttarkashi and 25 kms near Gangotri. Along with retreat centres for sadhus and devotees, some welfare activities for the benefit of the poor and underprivileged will be taken up after acquiring and developing the land. 

A sum of Rs. 2 crores is estimated to set up and develop the additional unit of the Uttarkashi Math. We request our friends and devotees, trusts and corporate bodies to contribute liberally to complete this project of welfare and spirituality at the earliest.

Donations can be made by NEFT/RTTGS to the Ramakrishna Math, Uttarkashi, Union Bank of India, Uttarkashi Branch; IFSC: UBIN0560189, A/c No. 601802010006696.
