Belur Math……The HQ of Sri Ramkrishna Mission & Math
I always very strongly feel God is a much Bigger & Better planner than any of us .
I am lucky….
In many ways and one of them is my present place of posting by virtue of which I am residing just near to this “Belur Math” & otherwise people from different parts of India as well as the World 🌎 come to see this place where the Legendary Sri Sri Ram Krishna Mission & Math HQ is situated along with “Sri Ramkrishna University”and “Maa Sarada Pith” on the banks of river Hooghly.
It was the day of “Mahalaya” & Pitru Paksha is considered by Hindus to be inauspicious, given the death rite performed during the ceremony, known as (Śrāddha|Shraddha)or (Tarpana|tarpan).
In southern and western India, it falls in the 2nd paksha (forthnight)of”Hindu Calenda-Hindu lunar month)of (September) and follows the forthnight immediately after the (Ganesh festival).It begins on the Pratipada (first day of the forthnight) ending with the (Amavasya|no moon)day known as ”’Sarvapitri amavasya”’, ”’Pitru Amavasya”’, ”’Peddala Amavasya”’, ”’Mahalaya amavasya”’ or simply ”’Mahalaya”’.
Wife and me visited the Math and as there is facility of “Prashad Sevan” and for that one has to collect “Tokens”.
This is the huge “Maa Sarada Prasad Griha” where not less than at least 10K people are served “Khechudi Prasad” along with one or two curries , chatni & kheer at the end.
Sometimes we both visit this Auspicious place for rejuvenating own piece of mind.
Devotes of Sri Ramkrishna & Maa Sarada Devi from all parts of India and abroad even come here and there is also facility of accommodations provided if booked well in advance.
