Ramakrishna Mission Singapore is a branch of the Ramakrishna Order of India, worldwide spiritual and welfare organization. Like the other branches in Asia-Oceania, North & South America, Europe and Africa, the Center is a self-sustaining unit that looks to the Ramakrishna Order for spiritual guidance.
The Center bases its teachings on the System of Vedanta, which combines both the religion and philosophy of the Hindus, especially as explained by Sri Ramakrishna (1836-1886), his wife and spiritual companion Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi (1853-1920) and his disciple Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) and demonstrated in their lives.
Vedanta teaches that every soul is potentially divine, and that its divinity may be manifested through worship, contemplation, unselfish work, and philosophical discrimination. According to Vedanta, Truth is universal and all humankind and all existence are one. It preaches the unity of the Godhead, or ultimate Reality, and accepts every faith as a valid means for its own followers to realize the Truth.
