Akhanda Mandali & Ayachak Ashrama

Sri Sri Swami Swarupananda Paramhansa Deva was love and compassion personified. His glorified desire for the good of all and evil of none , his spirit of reverence for the essential of purity and goodness of the inner nature of man, his strong faith in brightness of the future of mankind and his genuine and unpretending modesty made him Babamoni or the most loving eternal father of one and all.

More a social reformer than a religious preacher, Sri Sri Babamoni started morality campaign as early as 1914for fighting out the malignancies affecting the society. An extra – ordinary orator , a great organiser , a famous writer and a tireless worker, he singled out morality campaign as his way of serving the society and he continued with his mission throughout his long life. This very noble movement is gaining momentum everyday and is now being carried out by the Ayachak Ashram founded by him various Akhanda Mandalis and his innumerable disciples and admirers throughout the country and abroad.

At the time when almost everyone whether an individual or an institution – runs after raising subscriptions in the name of serving people , Sri Sri Babamoni, in tune with the ideals of the Upanishads- “nayamatma balahinen labhya, bhikshayam naiba naibacha” was the rarest exception who proclaimed that Abhiksha (non-begging) would be the guiding principle of his spirit of service. Himself practically coining the word , he explained that abhiksha is complete reliance on God, reliance on the strength and resources which he has already deposited on man. Not to beg, not to speak out regarding want , not even to pray mentally for something to somebody is the strict discipline for those embracing the ideology of Abhiksha. Himself pursuing it throughout his life , Sri Sri Babamoni inspired all others to follow this line. On this principle of Abhiksha has grown around the Ayachak Ashram which has now spread its branches in Benaras, Kolkata Guwahati, Agartala, Udaipur, Jharkhand and other parts of the country.
