Kumbha Mela 2019

An Appeal

Dear Friends,

We all know that Tirtharaj Prayag  (Allahabad) is a place for versatility of religions and spirituality. Not only different sects of the Hindu Dharma, but also people of all religion and faith come to Prayag to feel the gigantic vibrations penetrating the very spiritual atmosphere of Tirtharaj Prayag. One can see confluence of religions during the time of Kumbha Mela, which is a sort of a mini India. By the grace of spiritual teachers from time immemorial, pious devotees come to Kumbha Mela to take dip in the Triveni Sangam— and be sanctified. The upcoming Kumbha Mela is scheduled from 14 January to 19 February 2019. Per Government estimates, more than 15 crore sadhus, devotees and pilgrims will take bath in the holy water during the Mela.

Ramakrishna Mission Sevashrama, Allahabad, will take this opportunity to extend its helping hand of service among more than five lakh Sadhus, Devotees and Pilgrims from the remotest corners of the country. This will be a unique opportunity for us to spread the message of the Holy Trio among devotees — and receive blessings by fulfilling the dream of Swamiji: “Service to Man is Service to God.” With the blessings of the Most Revered Swami Vijnananandaji Maharaj (the founder of Ramakrishna Mission Sevashrama, Allahabad in the year 1910), we are planning to organise a camp in the bank of Triveni Sangam.

During the Mela days, the following facilities will be provided to devotees/pilgrims:

  • Prayer cum lecture hall ● Round-the-clock free charitable dispensary with emergency facilities ● Book stall ●Photo gallery of the Holy Trio ● Boarding/lodging facilities for Sadhus, devotees and pilgrims.

The expected cost of this Kumbha Mela Camp is calculated at approx. Rs 1,50,00,000(Rupees one crore and fifty lakh only). To meet such high expense we request to you and other generous devotees  to contribute and help us in our good work — as well as be a member in the SevaYajna started by Swami Vivekananda himself.
