The quiet spiritual center of this great city is the RAMAKRISHNA MISSION situated close to the R.k.Beach.This is a center for spiritual up-liftment which is committed to the service of mankind. Swami Vivekananda the closest disciple of Ramakrishna spread the message of internal discipline, meditation and the spirit of giving and established missions all over the world.It was found in the year 1938.
The Vizag center is doing a great job in the moral up-liftment and the dedication of Swamiji’s who run the center is an inspiration to the citizens of Vizag. In a peaceful and calm environment, people pray and meditate in the big hall every morning.Some assemble after a morning walks on the beach at this Hall to meditate.
The Ramakrishna Mission carries the work of the socio-religious Ramakrishna movement, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and formed by his disciple Swami Vivekananda.
