Dedicated to Sri Sarada Devi, The Holy Mother

An Organization Unfolds

Briefly, we are an independent association of spiritual aspirants from all faiths who are interested in the universal ideals of Vedanta. Taking Sri Sarada Devi as a model we try to apply the principles of Vedanta in our daily lives.

Sri Sarada Society had simple beginnings. Its first project was to collect American subscriptions to Samvit, Sri Sarada Math's semiannual English publication, Samvit is and published by the Sri Sarada Math center in New Delhi, India.

A pressing need felt by Western women Vedantists to encourage a more manifest expression of the principle of Divine Motherhood in themselves and others has led to the broadening of Sri Sarada Society as a devotee organization dedicated to promoting the study of the life and teachings of Sri Sarada Devi, viewing her example as an inspiration through which the principles of Vedanta may find full and practical application in Western life.

After its inception in 1992, Sri Sarada Society sponsored three Pravrajikas of Sri Sarada Math, a women's monastic order in India, for travel to the U.S. in 1993, as participants in the second Parliament of the World's Religions held in Chicago. Together with other devotee groups, Sri Sarada Society continues to facilitate visits and public tours by the pravrajikas in America.

Additionally, Sri Sarada Society encourages informal retreats by small devotee groups, which may be held in one's own home.

The Ridgely Project

Sri Sarada Society worked to raise funds to purchase and preserve the Ridgely estate as a spiritual residence from 1994 through March 1997. We are proud to have led initial efforts to secure this sacred property associated with Swami Vivekananda. Although the Society intended to purchase the property to establish the work of Mother's daughters in the West, we are pleased the property is now within the Ramakrishna family and tradition as Vivekananda Retreat, Ridgely.
