Nara Narayan Temple, Joyrambati
Swami Vivekananda , the patriot Monk of India, repeatedly told us the method of Practical Vedanta, is "Service to Man is Service to God" and through God worship in Man we can realize the highest Truth. For practical demonstration of the said idea, Swami Nityananda, founder Secretary of Ramakrishna Vivekananda Mission, Barrackpore set up a temple named Nara Narayan Temple at village Joyrambati in the district of Bankura where everyday a male child of any caste and religion between 4-5 years is worshipped as deity in the Temple and offered flowers, fruits, garments etc. Everyday a separate child is selected. Anybody can worship such child. This is a unique example of its kind. The civilization will reach to its highest state when we respect each other as we respect God.
