Ramakrishna Monastic order

The undergraduate years are the time when many students explore their interests and nourish their intellectual curiosity. For Swami Sarvadevananda, they’re also a time to ask some crucial questions.

“What is your purpose in life? To receive a degree, and then to find a good job? Is that all?” the Swami asked students Monday night during a dinner lecture at the Athenaeum. “You were born to do great things, to bring out what is dormant inside of you.”
