Updated February Schedule in view of Emergency declared by the Government of Japan

From 7th January to 7th March, 2021


The Japanese government has announced that as the number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continues to rise, remarkably in some parts of Japan in particular, everyone should adopt social distancing measures and stay at home in order to prevent an explosion of cases.


Under these circumstances, it is not appropriate to go out, even for spiritual programmes at the Kyokai, considering prioritising your health and safety.


In light of this, we have updated the February schedule on our website to continue to provide mental support and spiritual support to our devotees. You can see the new schedule at the end of this message. All the programmes will be livestreamed so you can watch them on the computer at home or on your mobile phone.


I pray that by the grace of Sri Ramakrishna this virus situations ends soon. I pray for your health and safety.
