Swami Debananda Ashram, Kenjera (Bankura)
This branch of Swami Debananda Ashram is situated at Kenjera, Bankura. Surrounded with trees and greenery all around, this ashram is an abode of peace and tranquillity. Established in 1997, this ashram is 31 Km from Bardhaman by bus via Dighirkon-Datpukur. Like all other branches of Swami Debananda Ashram, this is also headed by a saffron-clad monk. The devotees living in the nearby areas visit the ashram for spiritual practice. Like other branches, regular spiritual programmes of the ashram include puja, prayer, meditation, naamgaan, and atmacharcha or self-analytical discussion. As discipline is the hallmark of Swami Debananda Ashram, like all other ashrams, here too every activity is time bound and is regulated by the tolling of bells. From time to time His Holiness, Swami Debananda Maharaj, visits this ashram and gives darshan to the devotees.
