Wednesday, 10thJanuary, 2024


Dear All,   


           As you are certainly aware  that repeated high  magnitude earthquakes and several severe aftershocks struck Noto-Hantou area (Ishikawa-ken) recently, devastating vast areas of those countries, killing hundreds of people and creating the widespread damages  affecting thousands of people causing indescribable hardship to them.


           The Ramakrishna Mission has a long tradition of providing extensive relief to the victims of natural disasters.  We, the monks and devotees of the Mission’s Japan branch, are wondering if we can be of some help to the victims of the said disaster. After considering various options we have decided to collect funds from our devotees, friends and well-wishers and hand over/send the collected funds to the local administration of the affected area to express our sympathies and prayers for the victims of the said disaster.


           Any funds donated by you, regardless of amount, will be greatly appreciated as a kind and sympathetic gesture from you and your friends.


           Please note that if you send donation as requested please inform us the amount of donation and the name of your bank and the date of the bank transfer through e-mail; all correspondence regarding the donation should be sent to the following e-mail address only: You may as well send your donation through Post Office/Credit card/on line ( please see Vedanta Society’s home page:
