Suchitra Sen’s association with Ramakrishna Mission helped the actress forget worldly pains and attain peace in life.
"There was a point of time in her life when she lacked internal and familial peace. That is when she got in touch with our gurus and a desire rose in her to lead a life following the footsteps of Swami Vivekananda,” said Swami Bimalatmananda of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission.
“She is an example of how a person’s life can change after taking
(initiation into the Ramakrishna order). This new found faith enabled her to forget all materialistic thinking and sufferings and allowed her to get deluged in spiritualism,” the monk said.
On Suchitra’s long association with the Mission, Bimalatmananda said the actress would regularly visit the Math and would help in organising Durga Puja or the birth anniversary celebrations of Ramakrishna Paramhans and Ma Sarada. “She would often visit the mission, and before every festival organised by the mission, she would donate money and would personally visit here. She came here even a year before last,” he added.
