    Announcements for the programme were ably made by Shri Bhaskar Roy by quoting some shlokas about Sri Ramakrishna as the Supreme Guru and various connected incidents of His life.







    In his opening speech Shri Arun Dey stated that Sri Ramakrishna had come in this age for mukti of all, and to achieve it we devotees need only to remember Him with regular practice of sadhana.







    In his address, Shri Kundu said that Sri Ramakrishna taught us devotees how to keep the divine in our mundane daily life.







    Smt. Reeta Wadhwa said that whoever with a pure heart thinks good of others is the true beneficiary of spiritual wealth. Swami Vivekananda never thought about himself but to remove the miseries of mankind.







    Three devotees read passages from the lives and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda.







    Our Revered Swami Shantatmanandaji Maharaj also addressed the gathering which was heard with rapt attention.
