“Atmano mokshartham jagat hitaya cha” (For one’s own salvation and for the welfare of the world). With this motto in mind, Swami Vivekananda, the famous monastic disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa founded the Ramakrishna Mission and Math. Belur Math is the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission and Math. The sprawling campus of Belur Math with beautiful and well-pruned garden is located on the bank of river Ganges. This is a tranquil place close yet but away from the hubbub.
