Sri Sri Kaibalyadham Ashram, Pahartoli, Chittagong, Bangladesh

During the last few years of Sri Sri Thakur’s life, when He had frail health, He thought of a hermitage at a suitable place and expressed His desire to His close disciples. The disciples then started searching for a convenient place in different parts of undivided India. But Thakur did not like most of the places as suggested by His disciples. At last, in 1930 after inspecting several places in and around Chittagong, Bangladesh, along with His close disciples He Himself, as one day he happened to rest under a banyan tree (later on named ‘Kaibalya Sakti’), pointed at the location of the hermitage, later named ‘Sri Sri Kaibalyadham’ by Him on the top of a hill at Pahartali.

This was a lonely place owned by Sri Mahendra Lal Ghosal. On his expiry his wife and son Sri Nirmal Ghosal donated the same to Sri Sri Thakur. The hill was covered with a dense forest and there were a number of ferocious animals. Soon it was cleaned to construct the hermitage. After a small temple was constructed, most of the disciples wanted to inaugurate ‘Sri Sri Kaibalyadham’ during the month of April or May, 1930 on an auspicious day. But Thakur declared the date of inauguration to be 26th July 1930 (10th Shraban, 1337 B.S) and that was the day, it was inaugurated, though Thakur was not present for that function.

Thakur entered the temple in mid February, 1931(15th Falgun, 1337 B.S) and stayed there for a few days never to enter afterwards. Later on, with the untiring effort of the disciples the main temple, guest houses and boundary walls were constructed. Roads were also constructed by cleaning the forest. That year (1338, B.S) ‘Durga puja’ was also performed by worshipping ‘Devi-Durga’ as an idol. This continued only for three years after which the same festival is being conducted every year by worshipping not the idol of the goddess Durga but by placing ‘Ghot’ (pitcher) beside the image of Sri Sri Kaibalyanath. This is also the annual festival of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham, Pahartali, which continues for five days. Lakhs of devotees from different parts of Bangladesh and India gather and have free Prasad day and night during the festival. In addition to the above, every weekend thousands of devotees have free Mahaprasad.

Sri Sri Kaibalyadham is very close to the ‘Kaibalyadham’ Railway station, which is also adjacent to Dhaka Chittagong Highway, popularly known as Dhaka Trunk Road. On the western side of Kaibalyadham the panoramic view of the Bay of Bengal is very fascinating, so is the view of the sunrise and the sunset. On this side there is also a big banyan tree named ‘Kaibalya Sakti’ and a big pond known to be ‘Kaibalya Kunda’, where the disciples take their holy dip. On the northern side of this pond there is a place where ‘Sradha’ ceremony is conducted. Thakur said that if a ‘Sradha’ ceremony is conducted there, people will get the same benefit as in ‘Gaya’, India. Later on ‘Hara-Gauri’ temple was made within the campus and a new building was constructed for guest rooms and other activities of the devotees.

Srimat Haripada Bandyopadhyay was nominated by Thakur as the First Mohant of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham before its inauguration. He was a dedicated disciple of Thakur; he liked to sing divine songs playing his ‘Tanpura’ and enjoyed the discussions on the mystery of spiritualism. He passed away in February, 1935 and then Srimat Syamacharan Chattopadhyay became the Mohant under the directive of Thakur. Srimat Chattopadhyay was in the position of Mohant for 25 years and during this period he made enough infrastructural development of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham and other temples of Sri Sri Kaibalyanath. Thakur gave him the full responsibility of initiating new devotees before He took rest in His heavenly abode on March 2, 1960.

Jadabpur Ashram
Ashram

Sri Sri Kaibalyadham, Jadavpur, Kolkata, India

It was 1940 when Sri Sri Thakur was staying in a house at Kolkata. One day during a conversation with His close disciples Thakur said to late Dr.Kshitibhushan Sen that He did not have any place to stay. Rather surprised to hear this, Dr. Sen said that he had a land at Jadavpur, Kolkata, and he would be glad to build a house for Thakur if He so wanted. Thakur agreed to that proposal and came to see the land with Dr. Sen. Where at present the Tulshimanch has been constructed, Thakur stood at that very spot. Thakur liked the land and said that there would be a small two storied building with one bed room and verandah on the first floor and another room at ground floor. Thakur also said that the staircase of the building would be very narrow so that only one person could move there at a time. Thakur would stay in the first floor and call someone by ringing a bell, if needed. Thakur asked to demarcate the place as Satyanarayan peeth where He was standing and describing His desire. He also asked to show Him the whole plan when it would be ready. When the plan was ready, Thakur approved it and the construction of the building was over by 1942. Dr. Sen met Thakur and He declared with great joy the date of Grihaprabesh as 13th Falgun, 1349 B.S (26th February, 1942).

The disciples were conveyed accordingly and preparations were made to turn this occasion a grand success. On 13th Falgun, Thakur was staying at the house of late Kunjalal Majumder, one of His very devoted follower, at 11, Earl Street, Kolkata, and did not attend the function despite repeated prayers of His disciples and did not even meet any of His disciples who came to attend the ceremony. However, He was kind enough to direct His close disciples to take His sacred shoes to the function. Those sacred shoes were worshipped by Srimat Shyamacharan Chattopadhyay, the second Mohant of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham. Thakur also declared that temple at Jadavpur as the another Sri Sri Kaibalyadham and it would be a branch of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham at Pahartali, Chittagong, Bangladesh. After much persuasion and prayers from the disciples, He obliged them by arriving in front of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham, Jadavpur, stayed there for some time in the car itself and came back to the place where He was staying.

Initially, the office and the kitchen for mahaprosad was on the ground floor at that time. In front of the temple, a Tulsi mancha was set up where Satyanarayan puja was performed everyday by the devotees with kirtan. Later on, this temple and the Tulsi-mancha were renovated and a new attractive Shrine was constructed, where the photograph of Sri Sri Kaibalyanath is now worshipped everyday. A separate three storied building was also constructed within its premises for accommodating office, Charitable dispensary, kitchen, room for serving mahaprosad, room of Mohant, Library, room for initiating new devotees etc. A display cum sale section having books on life and teachings of Thakur, published from Sri Sri Kaibalyadham and various photographs of Thakur has also been set up in the ground floor. Over the years, this Dham has gradually developed in different directions like running a charitable medical center with experienced and specialized doctors in different branches of allopathy and homoeopathy, extending financial aid for the treatment and education of the needy and poor and arranging seminars for the promotion of awareness of diseases like cancer, diabetes etc. Every year the annual festival of this Dham is performed on the date of its inauguration and thousands of devotees assemble on that day. Devotees from different parts of India and even from Bangladesh come to pay their respect.

Choumohony Ashram
Ashram

Sri Sri Samadhi Mandir, Chaumohani, Noakhali, Bangladesh

The location of this Ashram is on the southern side of Chaumohani market, Bangladesh. The place is known as Chaumohani as most of the canals meet here from all sides of Noakhali district. Chaumohani market was a very small market in its early stage, but now it has turned out to be a famous business center of Bangladesh. A foreign jute company at that time established their business over there and they took a bungalow of Sri Upendra Saha on rent for their managers. In course of time that company closed down their shutters and the bungalow remained vacant for two years.

In the last phase of His life, Sri Sri Thakur expressed to Sri Upendra Saha, one of His close disciples, His desire to stay in a quiet place for a few days. Sri Saha informed Thakur that his bungalow at Chaumohani was lying vacant and he could make all arrangements if Thakur wanted to stay there. After getting His consent, the bungalow was renovated a little by Sri Saha and Thakur stayed there for about seven years at a stretch till the date He passed away of course there were short breaks when He went on occasional visits to different places. Most of the time the main door as well as the main gate of the bungalow used to remain closed and Thakur did not want to meet devotees. In due course, however, the door used to be kept open occasionally to fulfil the intense desire of the devotees who came from a distance for a Darshan.

Thakur used to get up early in the morning and after walking leisurely in the veranda for some time, He used to read news paper. But whenever any devotee came for His advice, He never refused him. For the spiritual uplift of all irrespective of religion, caste and creed He continued to deliver His advice untiringly even when He was sick. Most of His words of advice were hard to understand but still devotees could never leave the place such was the attraction.

Satya Naranon Sariyotpur
Ashram

Sri Sri Satyanarayan Seva Mandir, Dingamanik, Shariatpur, Bangladesh

Another hermitage was established at Dingamanik, Bangladesh in 1349 B.S (1943) in the month of Ashar during ‘Guru-purnima’ having the consent of Thakur, on the eastern side of the house where Thakur was born. At first an Ashram was set up in a single room with a roof of tiles. Later on the disciples took an active role in constructing a very high and beautiful temple accompanied by other buildings. On the western side of this temple an L-shaped single storied building was constructed and in one of the rooms of that building the photograph of Sri Sri Lakshman Thakur, the twin brother of Thakur, is worshipped. Sri Sri Lakshman Thakur was also a very powerful divine and mystic personality. He passed away at the age of 58 years.

On the northern side of this temple there is a big pond and on the western bank of this pond there is a very old two-storied house. In one of the rooms on the roof of that building, the idols of Lakshi and Narayan were worshipped. In His early life Sri Sri Thakur used to be absorbed in meditation in that room. Outside the compound of the house and on the northern side, there is a small elevated place, covered with a very big Ashoke tree, where the father of Sri Sri Thakur received the supernatural power through meditation.

After Thakur’s father passed away every year Goddess Kali was worshipped in that place. Even today the same tradition is observed on the inaugural day of this temple. Several Muslim families of this locality have deep respect and regard for this temple and they take prasad here along with the Hindu disciples. Cherag Ali, a mushlim devotee was one of the devoted disciples of Sri Sri Thakur. He established an ashram in his own house in that village and his son and younger brother also became the disciples of Thakur. They have been maintaining that Ashram even today.

Sarbadharma Samannoy

What is religion?

What is the usefulness of religion?

What’s the importance or role of religion in human life?

 

These questions have been evoked and multiform views have been offered in diverse religious versions relating to it. Swami Vivekananda said: “Religion is the manifestation of the divinity already in man.” Sri Sri Ram Thakur said that religion is both patience and truth. This Eternal Truth is termed as almighty God. The survival of this universe is impossible without His existence. God exists everywhere in the form of energy. In His words Eternal Truth is the only shelter of man.

 

Religion is essentially the development of the inner divinity – the most precious asset of any human being – beyond caste, creed, community etc. Religion is basically one, but attitudes or methods are many. In general, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and so on are presumed to be ‘religions’, but, in fact, they are all diverse ways of worship or various ways of practicing religion and nothing else. And, these are mere faiths and theological strictures followed by communities.

Sri Sri Ramthakur, the embodiment of Satyadharma (the religion of truth and eternity), through His incarnation as Satyanarayana made the clarion call to each and every one to remain faithful and sincere to ‘Satyadharma’ and be ‘Satyashrayee’ (faithful to the Truth).

Sri Sri Thakur had respect for all the communities and religions and advised His disciples to practice the same. According to Him, the Spirit or Soul within all living creatures is one adopting different names and surnames. Although Sri Sri Thakur’s disciples came from different communities – Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam – He never ever asked them to forsake their respective faiths. Hence He attracted people from different religions. He was dear to each and everybody. Once, in reply to a question of a certain disciple Sri Sri Ramthakur said: “All of you belong to ‘human’ community notwithstanding whichever land or country or race you come from.”

After the establishment of Sri Sri Kaibalyadham, Pahartali, Chittagong, He said: Far-flung areas surrounding the Kaibalyadham will come under it. Hindu, Christian and Muslim saints will come over here to worship and meditate. Convergence of pilgrims will be larger here than that of Kumbha Mela…..This will be the place for pilgrimage for the people of the entire world. This Dham will witness Sarvadharmasamanway (coordination of all the communities) and the swabhavdharma (religion of the Nature) emanating from this Dham will be embraced by the inhabitants of this planet. In future, a certain great saint will descend to preach the glory of this Dham in the Universe.

 

The Emblem

This picture was drawn by Bhagwan Sri Sri Ram Thakur. Through this very emblem Thakur articulated the truth that all the religions would, in course of time, converge into just one community i.e. human community that would only survive. Bhagwan Sri Ram Thakur who was himself Sri Sri Satyanarayana, had the rare greatness to honour all the religious communities.

The biggest circle in the picture denotes Brahmanda (the Universe), while the middle one, Buddhachakra, represents Buddhism and the smallest or the innermost one, Guru Nanakchakra, indicates Sikhism.This picture was drawn by Bhagwan Sri Sri Ram Thakur. Through this very emblem Thakur articulated the truth that all the religions would, in course of time, converge into just one community i.e. human community that would only survive. Bhagwan Sri Ram Thakur who was himself Sri Sri Satyanarayana, had the rare greatness to honour all the religious communities.

The straight line with Garuda, representing the place of the devotee, on its top criss-crossing these three circles north-south is Brahmadanda and the line running east-west through the middle of it symbolizes the Flute of Sri Bhagwan. The crossing of these two lines depicts the Holy Cross, the symbol of Christianity. The line with Trishul (trident) of Devadideva (God of Gods) Mahadeva reflects Shaiva and Shakta faiths. And, the remaining line with spud (Khunti) and the crescent at its two ends replicates the symbols of Ramayet community and Islam respectively.

Once, a disciple asked Bhagwan Sri Ramthakur, “Baba, which community do we belong to?” Thakur replied, “Human community.
