Following the same path, the Ramakrishna Math, Rajkot, sited on a peaceful campus offers a value-based education, which is to give a practical shape to his teachings and spread them far and wide for the benefit of humanity. The Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission are the direct branches to spread his teachings.
