The devotees of Sri Ramakrishna, inspired by Swami Vivekananda's concept of "Service to Man is Service to God" started a private centre in the name of "Brahmananda Memorial Trust" in 1958, to serve the people in and around this village. The Trust established a school Brahmananda Vidya Bhavan. This Centre got the affiliation as a Ramakrishna Mission Centre in 1992 and was taken over by the Math and Mission Headquarters (Belur Math) in 2002.
Mangalarati (Waving of Lamp before a deity at early dawn) is performed at early dawn followed by puja and sandhyarati (Waving of lamp before a deity in the evening) everyday in the Sri Ramakrishna Temple. Ram Nam-Sankirtan (praising God in songs) is performed in every eleventh day of a lunar fortnight. Foundation Day of the Ashrama, birthdays of Thakur, Maa, Swamiji and Raja Maharaj and other direct disciples of Thakur and Durgapuja, Kalipuja, Janmastami, Christmas-eve, Buddhajayanti, Shankarajayanti etc are observed.
Weekly four classes are held in the Ashrama's nat Mandir and several classes are held in outside of the Ashrama like Basirhat, Berachampa, Baduria, Kholapota and in other village and town for scriptural discourses and on the life and message of Thakur, Maa, Swamiji and Raja Maharaj. Apart from removing doubts from the mind of Narendra, Sri Ramakrishna won him over through his pure, unselfish love. Thus began a guru-disciple relationship which is quite unique in the history of spiritual masters. Narendra now became a frequent visitor to Dakshineshwar and, under the guidance of the Master, made rapid strides on the spiritual path. At Dakshineshwar, Narendra also met several young men who were devoted to Sri Ramakrishna, and they all became close friends.
Swami Brahmananda popularly known as Raja Maharaj was born at Sikra-Kulingram. Thats why the birthday celebration of Maharaj is celebrated here with due solemnity and respect. More than 15000 thousands devotees' are gathered on this auspicious occasion from all over the country.
