Description
Introduction

Yesterday I wanted to speak in Hindi, but Professor Kedarnath Labh, Secretary of this Ramakrishna Adbhutanada Ashrama of Chhapra, had asked me to speak in English. So I spoke in English yesterday, but today I shall speak in Hindi.

There are several languages in our country. Each region has own language. If I go Kerala, I have to speak in Malayalam; to Tamil Nadu, in Tamil; to Karnataka, in Kannada; to Bengal in Bengali; and here in Bihar, I have to speak in Hindi. All these languages are our own languages, the languages of our country. The languages are different but the culture is the same. We in India express the same culture though our different languages.

Yesterday, this Ashrama, started in memory of Latu Maharaj or Swami Adbhutananda, an illiterate rural disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, was inaugurated. Just now, Sri Udit Roy, our MLA, in his lecture, marrated the story of how this Ashrama came into existence and the difficulties faced to establish it. I am sure you must have felt happy to it. You may be interested to know that, unlike here in Bihar, the Math at Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, received succeeded substantial help from the state. Only a few ministers and administrative officers of the Government of Andhra Pradesh in Hyderabad know something of Swami Vivekananda and Sri Ramakrishna, about eighteen years ago. Yet, one day, the then chief minister of the State, Sri Vengal Rao, now Industries Minister at the Centre, himself came to meet me and collected an application from me for grant of land for land for the Ashrama and, within five months, sanctioned me five acres of land almost in the center of the. There was no difficult at all. Normally, such thing can take even upto ten years, but within five months the Government gave the land to the Ashrama. I had prepared a programme of Rs. 33 lakh for the development of the Ashrama. I told the Chief Minister that the government should give us at least two-thirds of the money. He said, ‘Why two- thirds? We will give you the entire amount. It is a matter of pride us that, in Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh, an Ashrama is being established in the name of Vivekananda. We feel honored,’ He asked me, ‘What more do you need? I said, I shall come to the name secrariat tomorrow to meet the fiancé Secretary and the education Secretary. He said, No, why should you come? I will send those people to the Ashrama to discuss the matter with you. So they came to the Ashrama, discussed with me, and sanctioned Rs. 22 lakh from the government department for development of the Ashama. After two or three years, they gave Rs. 5 lakh more, and the Tirupati Devasthanam gave Rs. 12 lakh. A new Ashrama was established after spending about Rs. 60 lakh. We also received later there more acres of land in the neighborhood. So the new Ashrama is now functioning in eight acres of land.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
