About Sri Ma Trust
Sri Ma Trust is a charitable and non-profit making organization engaged in propagating Indian culture with special emphasis on the life and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa and Sri M.
This Trust was founded by Swami Nityatmananda on December 12, 1967 in the memory of his revered first guru Sri M. – a person who inspired in him a feeling for living the life of a tapasvi for the realization of God for obtaining eternal peace and happiness in the midst of normal occupation.
In these restless times of stress and strain, what can give more light to the troubled householder than the message of Sri Ramakrishna as embodied in the life of his great householder devotee, Sri M.? The Trust has published ‘Sri Ma Darshan’ in Bengali and Hindi in sixteen volumes, and its first ten volumes in translation into English, under the title ‘M., the Apostle & the Evangelist’. Sri Ma Darshan is a faithful record of the conversations of Sri M. in the diaries of his intimate and devoted disciple, Swami Nityatmananda.
The Trust has also published Volumes I to III of the original Bengali edition, ‘Sri Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita,’ in English, and Volumes I to V in Hindi.
Among the other prestigious publications of the Trust, mention may be made of ‘A Short Life of M.,’ ‘The Life of M.’ and a compendium of views and tributes of renowned sadhus and other devotees of Sri Ramakrishna in a volume entitled ‘Sri Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita Centenary Memorial’.
Sri Ma Trust is a registered body with its office at 579, Sector 18-B, Chandigarh, India. Its building in Sector 19-D, Chandigarh named Sri Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita Peeth, is comprised of a meditation room and a reading room cum library. The Trust is run mainly on donations from the devotees of Sri Ramakrishna, and friends and admirers of the Trust.
