?With the Holy Mother as the centre of inspiration, a Math is to be established on the eastern bank of the Ganga. As ?Brahmacharins? and ?Sadhus? will be trained in this Math (Belur Math), so in the other Math also, ?Brahmacharinis? and ?Sadhvis? will be trained.? was the long cherished dream of Swami Vivekananda.
Due to the prevailing social conditions at that time, his dream was realized much later during the birth centenary of Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi, when on 2nd December, 1954 the women?s Math was established at Dakshineswar, Kolkata by the authorities of the Ramakrishna Math & Ramakrishna Mission. Sri Sarada Math was granted independent status in September 1959 and in May 1960, the Trustees of Sri Sarada Math founded the Ramakrishna Sarada Mission with the object of serving women and children in all possible ways, irrespective of caste, creed and nationality.
