… one should not only work for himself, but also for others, always remembering the existence of god within everyone…All the wealth of the world can not help a little Indian village, if the people are not taught to help themselves. Our work has to be mainly educational, both moral and intellectual…”

Sri Ramkrishna Ashram, Nimpith
striving towards social, cultural and economic upliftment of the dwellers of Sundarban areas through building self reliance and confidence

The Journey
Inspired with the clarion call of the Wondering Monk, Swami Vivekananda, Swami Buddhanandaji Maharaj, an altruist monk of the Ramakrishna Order founded Sri Ramkrishna Ashram in 1960 at Nimpith with avowed mission to serve the distressed, the deserted and the destitutes as adorable Shiva in obscurity of the Sundarbans. The Ashram had virtually waged a ceaseless war against poverty, hunger, ignorance and social injustice, though scanty were its resources.

The people in Sundarbans had been crippled with appalling poverty, terrific superstitions, colossal illiteracy, perplexing unemployment, unhygienic living condition and a series of other miseries and misfortune. The Ashram modestly set about to tackle people’s problems, at least to some extent, with a view to serving them in the best possible way with its limited capacity. The Ashram’s services to the have-nots and the needy were planned to bring in gradual self-reliance of the beneficiaries shunning down any discrimination what so ever in regard to caste, creed, gender or religion.

In consistent advancement of Ashram’s mission increasing number of munificent people came in with their mites to fortify its capability of offering service to the distressed and the hapless. The Ashram was also endowed with sustained support and unstinted assistance on specific projects from various Departments of both the State and the Union Governments for the benefit of the target people. Generous contributions also flowed in from Philanthropic Trusts and Funding Agencies at home and abroad. With a view to embracing larger and larger number of Beneficiaries the Ashram entered into significant collaboration with German Agro Action (Bonn), Rotary Club, Inner Wheel club of Calcutta Midtown, Inner Wheel Club of Central Calcutta, Village Youth Clubs etc. The intensive services in diverse fields have been going on with indefatigable and selfless efforts unstintedly put in by monastic members, volunteers, teachers, faculty members and other personals.
