Ramakrishna Math
Naora is a small hamlet in South 24 Parganas in West Bengal about 35 km from Kolkata. It is 4km from Ghatakpukur on the Basanti Highway that leads to the Sundarbans. The Sundarbans mangrove forest, one of the largest such forests in the world and it is a World Heritage site inscribed by UNESCO in 1987. Tourists from all over the world visit this nature’s paradise round the year. For people of Kolkata, the Sundarbans is an ideal weekend getaway from the rigors of city life.

Naora is also the holy birth place of Swami Trigunatitananda, a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna. Born Sarada Prasanna Mitra, Swami Trigunatitananda (30th January 1865 – 10th January 1915) was instrumental in establishing Udbodhan - the leading monthly Bengali journal of the Ramakrishna Order. In 1903, he took charge of the Vedanta Society of San Francisco. Among his many contributions was the construction of a magnificent temple, originally known as the first Universal Temple, in the West.

Ramakrishna Math, Naora is located on the ancestral property where Swami Trigunatitananda was born. Spread over a 4-acre campus, with two water-bodies and a profusion of greenery, the Math is an ideal spot for peace, rest and rejuvenation. Being situated close to the Basanti highway, it holds the promise of becoming a preferred place of visit for tourists traveling to the Sundarbans and devotees from Kolkata and elsewhere.

In 1985, “Sri Sri Ramakrishna Trigunatita Sevashram” was privately started in Naora. On 7th February 2011, the management of the ashram was taken over and it became a full-fledged branch centre of the Ramakrishna Math, Belur Math. Today it is known as Ramakrishna Math, Naora.
Swami Trigunatitananda
January 30, 1865 - January 10, 1915
Pre-monastic name : Sarada Prasanna Mitra
Place of Birth : Naora, a village in 24-Parganas, West Bengal
Born in an aristocratic family, Sarada studied in the school of which Mahendranath Gupta (popularly known as M.) was the headmaster. After Sarada passed the school final examination, M. one day took him to Sri Ramakrishna. Owing to his parents’ opposition Sarada could not visit the Master frequently. When the Baranagar Math was established, Sarada joined it and underwent sannyasa ordination assuming the name, Swami Trigunatitananda. He spent a few years visiting the holy places and doing tapasya. He was endowed with strong physique and indomitable courage. In 1896, at the behest of Swami Vivekananda, he bought a press and started the monthly journal Udbodhan in a rented room. This is the first journal of the Ramakrishna Order and is the oldest surviving religious journal of its kind in India. After Swami Yogananda’s passing away, he served the Holy Mother for three years until he left for America. At the behest of Swami Vivekananda he went to America in 1902 and took charge of the San Francisco centre. His holy life, selfless love and unmistakable marks of spirituality attracted a large number of students and disciples. He was, however, a strict disciplinarian. One of his main achievements in San Francisco was the construction of a new building for the centre. Incorporating certain unique architectural features, this building, known as ‘Hindu Temple’, still stands as a monument to the eternal truths of Vedanta and the immortal spirit of man. One day when he was conducting a spiritual discourse, a former student of his who had become mentally deranged, threw a crude bomb at him, killing himself and seriously wounding Swami Trigunatitananda. The Swami remained calm and enquired about the student. However, he finally succumbed to the injuries on 10 January 1915.
