According to sources, the Ramakrishna Ashram in Ranchi has been ranked 15th out of 28 sightseeing places in Ranchi. From this, it can be easily inferred that the ashram is growing popularly into a tourist destination. It was established in 1927 by the eight president of the Ramakrishna order.
While visiting the place one can see into the functioning of the mission. I, atleast, got insight as to how efforts of hundreds of ordered monks and thousands of householder disciples is combined and directed towards a good cause. I got to know how the administration of the mission works at the same time gaining awareness about the Monastic Order.
We could also see many foreigners there and I realized that they realized our country’s worth and about its culture and tradition much more than we do. It gave an insight on the importance of spiritualism and it really opened my eyes to a lot of things.
