Towards World Peace.-in 1952

Presiding over the 117th birthday anniversary celebration os Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa at Sri Ramakrishna Math,Mylapore on March 2 Mr Alladi Krishnaswami Aiyer
said the message of sri Ramakrishna and other religious leaders was needed more than any other thing to save the world from disaster,the present distressing circumstances

Mr. Alladi Krishnaswami Aiyer said the one tangible and concrete legacy which Sri Ramakrishna had given to the world was Swami Vivekananda and the other was Ramakrishna Math
After recalling the close association with the work of the Ramakrishna Math in Madras for the past 40 years , the speaker said that for sometime past he had been thinking whether the teachings of great religious leaders had all been in vain . The Christian world was becoming unchristian for the name of Christianity ,the western nations wee fighting with one another .even in this country which was more tolerant than the west religion was being abused for despising one another . In view of all the shocking circumstances , the message of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa was necessary , and as Romain Rolland rightly observed the world could better profit from his teaching than anything else.
