KOCHI: Swami Gauthamanandaji Maharaj, president of Chennai Sree Ramakrishna Math and senior trustee of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission was given a reception on Monday.

Addressing a gathering, Swami Gauthamanda asked the people to acquire spiritual wealth.

He said that material wealth and spiritual wealth must co-exist for the well-being of a nation.

“While we are now strong in material wealth, spiritual wealth is disappearing”, he said. He inaugurated the Japa Sanghamam at Pavakulam Siva Temple before the Maha Kumbhabishekam began.

B. R. Ajith, president, reception committee, presided over the function.
