Yuktashram, India

Bhisindipur, Mednipur District, West Bengal, India

 

The ashram at Bhisindipur, in the Medinipur District in Bengal came into existence with the combined efforts of Swami Narayan Giri and Paramahamsa Hariharananda, and was named Yuktashram in memory of their beloved master Swami Shriyukteshwar Giri. Started in a small house, this ashram has turned into a beautiful hermitage in a very secluded area for meditation and spiritual practice.

 

In 1973, Paramahamsa Hariharananda recognized the need for a school for the children living in this village and had the Shriyukteshwar Vidyapith School constructed. The school has given the opportunity for hundreds of children to receive an education.

 

A health center was established at the ashram in 2004, which provides medical care and supplies to those in need.
