Visitor's Book

     In its 100 years of history, the home has been visited by almost all the distinguished sons and daughters of India.
     A few excerpts are included here to indicate the general impression of the visitors after going round the Home premisies.

Annie Besant in 1914

     I have visited the Ramakrishna Home with much pleasure. There is no service to the motherland, which is greater than the brining of Her youth in Her great religion hand-in-hand with western knowledge. Only then, can the English-educated and the Sanskrit educated be drawn together, and the great inspiration, which came from Sri Ramakrishna, through his noblest disciple Swami Vivekananda, be made effectual in the uplifting of India.

Mahatama Gandhi in 1915

I am exceedingly glad at being able to see this institution. There is no lack in enthusiasm displayed by those managing the Institution and experience will show the many ways in which students may reap benefit.

Mrs. Sarojini Naidu in 1917

I wish all success the Students Home, which is the academy of the future servants of India, trained to a harmonious expression of life and service through the vital influences of great ideals and common aspirations.

Dr. S. Radhakrishnan in 1930

It gives me very great pleasure to record my impressions of this institution. The foundations… are unique and it is such silent work of love, which contributes most to the uplifting of the nation. It works on the principle that all work is worship

H.H.Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Swamigal,Kanchi Kamakoti

On visiting this Vidya Mandiram named after Sri Ramakrishna, our mind is filled with delight; at the evidence of many good features such as sound education, good features such as sound education, good conduct, devotion, and general ability amongst all students; at the treasure of talented teachers that adorn it… May God bless with long life and with ever increasing prosperity…(Translated from Sanskrit)
