The Ramakrishna Math is a monastic institution, the principal purpose of which is to develop its members and lay devotees by means of spiritual practices such as worship, prayer, meditation andstudy, and to train monks to be competent teachers of religion.
The Ramakrishna Mission is a philanthropic body composed of both monastic and lay members. It is devoted to public service in various forms such as religious, cultural, educational and social.
The hospital serves the people of Arunachal Pradesh and neighbouring districts of Assam, irrespective of caste, creed, colour or religion on the principle of “SERVICE TO MAN IS SERVICE TO GOD” as taught by Swami Vivekananda.
Ramakrishna Mission started its activities first in the field of education in Arunachal Pradesh, then NEFA, in the year 1966. Ramakrishna Mission was the first philanthropic and monastic organization to come to this remote corner of our country to serve the people of the state on the request of public leaders of this state, the state government and on the personal request of Smt. Indira Gandhi. The local leaders and the then Lt. Governor of the state Sri K. A. A. Raja, too, requested our headquarters at Belur Math, District Howrah, West Bengal, this time to start a similar service program at Itanagar.Concern about the health care situation of the state made the Mission authorities establish a hospital at Itanagar to provide quality health care to the people. Thus, the Mission was given an opportunity to serve the “God in man” through its health care facility.
