Ramakrishna Vedanta Society of North Carolina is dedicated to the practice and propagation of the ideals of Vedanta as presented to the modern world by Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, and Swami Vivekananda.
The Society maintains a small but beautiful center near the Raleigh-Durham airport, where daily worship, regular classes, and special pujas are held.
This is an appeal from Swami Sarvapriyananda for Belur Math Fund on this COVID19 crisis. We as a center are collecting donations in this regard.
You can donate online using the ‘DONATE’ button. In the Donation please mention “For Belur Math”.
We shall collect all your generous donations and send a consolidated sum to Belur Math by the end of the month (May 2020).
Appeal for Belur Math Fund
Please accept my namaskars. I hope and pray you are keeping well in these difficult times.
I am writing to you with an appeal for Belur Math. Belur Math, which is our main monastery and houses the headquarters of our worldwide monastic order, is entirely dependent on donations from visitors. Due to the extended pandemic lockdown in India, there are no visitors and no donations at all. This has led to a severe financial crisis for Belur Math. Belur Math has appealed to us for financial aid.
I hesitate to ask for money as a rule, and especially so at this difficult time. Yet, we all have a deep emotional bond with Belur Math. It is our Guru-sthana, the holy place of our Gurus. It is the beloved creation of Swami Vivekananda himself and it is where he installed the living presence of Sri Ramakrishna. It is hallowed by the blessings of the Holy Mother.
Please donate whatever you can, without hardship to yourself and your families.
May the blessings and protection of the Divine Mother be upon you,
with namaskars and prayers,
All Vedanta center activities suspended due to COVID-19 until further notice, please stay safe at home.
Request to all: The devotees of Vedanta Society of North Carolina will be chanting “Jai Shri Ramakrishna Jai Ma Sarada.” every day at 4:00 to 4:30 at their house. You can also Chant any God Name of your choice.
Chanting together even remotely for world peace is very powerful. This Chanting can be done minimum of 10 Min to 30 Min.
