Swami Debananda Ashram, Nibeditapally (Burdwan)
Swami Debananda Ashram has a branch at Nibeditapally, P.O-Sripally, Purba Bardhaman, West Bengal. Established in 1993, the ashram is about 3 Km from the railway station and 1 km from Alisha, the nearest bus stand, and can be reached easily by town-service bus, rickshaw or toto. Placed in a quiet locality, the ashram is headed by a saffron-clad monk who looks over all the activities of the ashram. The ashram has a beautiful dhuni mandir on the first floor, and enough rooms for the accommodation of the devotees who wish to stay overnight at the ashram for sadhana. A strict routine is followed throughout the day, and every activity, be it spiritual or charitable, is done on time with the tolling of bell. Devotees always visit the ashram and take part in the various spirituals programmes like prayer, meditation, naamgaan, and atmacharcha or self-analytical discussion. His Holiness, Swami Debananda Maharaj, also gives darshan to the devotees at this ashram.
