Swami Debananda Ashram Krishnapur (Nadra) – Headquarter
Swami Debananda Ashram is headquartered at Krishnapur (Nadra), Purba Bardhaman -713101, West Bengal. The main office of the Ashram Trust is placed here. This branch of the ashram was established in 1997. It is 6 Kms from Bardhaman on the Bardhaman-Kalna bus route. Sequestered from the din and commotion of city life, this branch of Swami Debananda Ashram is an ideal place for a life of contemplation. Surrounded by greenery on all sides, tranquillity prevails in the atmosphere of this ashram. The ashram has a majestic dhuni mandir and an underground meditation hall the stillness of which enables one to delve deep within one’s own self. The cool shade of the Panchabati (assemblage of five trees) where our revered Gurudev sits and delivers His divine discourse, reminds one of the Gurukuls of the Vedic age. Several monks and lay devotees serve at the ashram and take part in the different spiritual and charitable activities conducted by the ashram. Attached to this ashram is a factory where spices and incenses are made. This activity is the source of livelihood of a number of unemployed people engaged in this job.
