Sri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Bailur Math, is a monastic organisation for men with provision for non-monastic inmates interested in pure spiritual life.
A parallel women’ monastic wing without any connection with the men wing, too exists under the name ‘Sri Ramakrishna Sharada Ashrama’.
Our Ashrama is located amidst the wonderful pleasant lap of Mother Nature - bank of a beautiful perennial river Swarnaganga, a doom shaped slopy mound (northern slope: 135 feet high reaching down to river) in the silent and calm retreats of the evergreen forest area of the Western Ghats of the South India, just 40 kms from Arabian sea. The place is called Bailur in the famous Karkal Taluk of the Udupi District in the South Canara region of Karnataka.
Under the banner and canopy of the Global Ramakrishna Movement, ours is an independent private organisation. It is a trust recognised by and registered under non-profit making, non-commercial public charitable trust by the IT Dept of the Govt. of India. To be more specific, in our own humble and limited way we are servants of this world and of God, seeking Him and His support in serving this world while trying to see Him in every being.
