Our Volunteers & Their Services

 

There are no specific requirements for visiting and taking part in the various activities of the centres of the Ramakrishna Order. Many people volunteer their time and energy to aid the various service-oriented activities of the organization. The daily evening Arati and devotional singing is a part of most of the centres. Many centres also have a definite schedule of weekly/monthly discourses, spiritual meets (Bhakta Sammelan), annual celebrations, seminars, retreats etc. You may seek out the head of the particular centre for spiritual counsel.

If especially interested in volunteering for some of the activities of the Math/Mission, you are encouraged to regularly visit the centre and get to know the monastics and other senior volunteers/devotees.

In this huge world with its large population, every activity is supposed to be done as a Yajna (sacrifice). As long as it is so, the world and its inhabitants, human or otherwise, live in harmony and satisfaction. Unfortunately, it is not the case with our present world. Hence the conditions in the world are also not Satisfactory and peaceful.

Every individual must think about meeting his own necessities and he/she may even think of the means to fulfil his/her small legitimate desires. But if an individual, all his life, spends his (or her as the case may be) time, energy and money only for his own self interests, he becomes a bane to world and also to himself. All the great personalities in the history about whom we remember, study and revere were those who thought about themselves only minimally and served the world around without reservations with as much time, money, and energy then could gather – personalities like a Buddha, a Christ and a Vivekananda.

The joy in serving others without any selfish motive is infinitely greater than catering to only one’s own desires and needs because the latter can be and is done even by animals. It is a joy to be tasted personally. We invite every one to cultivate this habit of Service.

There are various ways to serve the society. The Ramakrishna Math, Hyderabad, as you can see in this website, serves the society around in various ways. You could join us in one or more of the following ways:
