The Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Center of New York is an accredited branch of the Ramakrishna Order of India.  1983_50th_anniversary_service.jpg (23033 bytes)

Since 1933, the Center has been located in a beautiful five-story townhouse which was renovated to have four floors, so the worship center can have a balcony.

The Center seeks to stimulate the growth of the individual's innate spirituality through lectures, discourses, publications, and individual guidance. The disciplines the Center provides are suited to individual needs and temperaments. It does not deal with the occult or the sensational and offers no easy shortcuts.

Dear Bob and Claire,

Please accept our many thanks for your kind holiday greetings and the gift of three pre-recorded diskettes for our new Organ. May the season be a joyous one for you and may you have a New Year filled with peace, happiness, health and well-being.

We are so happy to have our new Organ in time for Christmas, and we are already enjoying the difference. Our Christmas Service this year will be all the more special. All of us are looking forward to Sunday, January 14th, when we will have the special "Organ Dedication Recital" that you have arranged for us.

We couldn't be more pleased with the service you have provided for us from the very beginning. Your personal involvement in every aspect, from selection and installation, to training in the use of the instrument, has been a great help. The enthusiasm you have about the Organ and its capabilities is contagious and we can't wait to experience all that it can offer.

Again with our thanks and best wishes, and looking forward to seeing you on January 14th.


Barry Zelikovsky
