SATSANG ASHRAM (DEOGHAR)

Satsang ashram in Deoghar is one of the holiest of the holy places for the followers of Sri Sri Thakur Anukul Chandra who spent his last 25 years of active life here. Satsong ashram was the center from where Sri Sri Thakur's man-making programme was directed. Thus a cluster of socio-industrial and cultural institutions have developed at deoghar. A visit to the ashram would inexorably take one out of the cobweb of mental blocks and would give one a feel of freedom, peace and progress. It shows the way of communal harmony and peaceful co-existence to the egocentric and trife torn world of today.

Sri Sri Thakur encouraged people to earn independent living with innovative zeal and with concern for the environment. That is how a number of small and integrated industrial activities are seen within the premises of satsong ashram. There are literary activities, which is seen in the form of a number of books and periodicals in all languages. Jouranls like 'Alochana' and 'Saptarchee' (in Bengali), 'Ligate' and 'The See-ence' (in English), 'Urjana' (in Oriya), 'Aryayan' (in Hindi) and a few more periodicals get regularly published from this place and carry the message of 'living with peace and progress' to the humanity.

Ashram attracts a large number of devotees everyday. Twice a year, mass congregations take place; once on the occasion of Bengalee New Year in the month of April and second in the aftermath of Dusserah in October.
