The Ricci Soliton is a natural generalization of an Einstein metric and is defined on a Riemannian manifold. In this paper we will find that the condition for Ricci Soliton in Kenmotsu manifolds to be Shrinking, Steady and Expanding.

Keywords: Bocnher Curvature tensor, Ricci tensor, Curvature tensor.
