About The Artiste

Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission publish several journals in English and in number of Indian and foreign languages. The first journal, however, published ‘under the advice and with the encouragement of Swami Vivekananda’ was the Brahmavadin, which means ‘The Messenger of Truth’.

Brahmavadin made its appearance in Madras on Saturday, 14 September 1895. In its prospectus it was stated ‘…it is proposed to start a weekly journal. The main object of the journal is to propagate the principles of the Vedanta Religion of India…’ The prospectus was signed by G. Venkataranga Rao, M.C. Nanjunda Rao and M.C. Alasinga Perumal.

Though proposed to be a weekly journal, in fact, it was a fortnightly magazine. Swamiji’s help, support, and inspiration, as well as Alasinga’s back-breaking labours, made the Brahmavadin a success so long as Alasinga was alive. But within a few years of Alasinga’s death, its publication ceased.

The Brahmavadin was not an official organ of the Ramakrishna Mission, but its contribution to the Mission is immense.

This CD contains the entire archives of the Brahmavadin in a digitized format-for the first time.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
