  • The birthdays of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda are celebrated with peace, holiness and solemnity. Good number of devotees participate in these celebrations to get the blessings of the Holy Trio.
  • Sri Ramakrishna is considered as ‘Sarva deva devi swaroopa’. Hence equal importance is given to worship of other Hindu Gods and Goddesses like Ganesha, Shiva, Shakti, Rama and Krishna.
  • Other prominent Hindu Festivals like Durga Puja, Krishna Janmashtami, Shivaratri, Ugadi, Sankara Jayanti etc. are celebrated with equal fervour.
  • Spiritual retreats are held now and then to enable the devotees to get themselves recharged with spiritual guidance. On this occasion monks deliver speeches, bhajans are held. It is a sort of ‘Sat Sangh” where the devotees have an opportunity to spend some time in the holy atmosphere away from their daily routine.
