A message from our Dean


Dear friends,


Recognizing the need for educating and training the next generation of scholars, theologians, teachers and practitioners in the broad and deep teachings of Sanatana Dharma as exemplified by Sri Ramakrishna and his disciples, Ramakrishna Seminary has been started as an educational ministry of Kali Mandir. The seminary is run primarily by ordained priests and monastics as a service to the Divine Mother and Her devotees. It combines Eastern and Western, practical and academic, ancient and modern, traditional and progressive methods and approaches to religious education.  


In the ancient gurukul system of education of India, knowledge was considered so sacred that it could not be sold. Education was given free of charge to gifted students and the teachers and their institutions were supported by the community and by the patronage of the leaders of society. While we do have expenses to meet, this ancient system is our ideal, and our goal is that no sincere student should be denied the opportunity to study because of limited finances.  With the generous support of patrons like you, we are trying to keep tuition cost low and to be able to offer scholarships to qualified students.

Please consider supporting Ramakrishna Seminary with a loving donation, as we begin this auspicious service to God and humanity. All donations made directly to Ramakrishna Seminary are tax-deductible and will only be used to support the school.

In divine service,

Swami Bhajanananda Saraswati, DMin, DD
