Ashram History

From the year 1956, Srimat Swami Rakanandaji Maharaj of Ramakrishna Math Nagpur started visiting Yavatmal for Jivan Vikas Magazine Subscribers. He used to go door to door for making Subscribers on cycle. Then MP Sri Janraoji Jawade, Sri Ramesh Sule of Indian Post, District Librarian Sri Kakasaheb Deshpande, Sri Nathalal Chandarana of Pandharkawada Village, Lawyer Sri Barve, Sri Tukaramji Wankhede, Sri Jainarayanji Ahir, a teacher from Wani Sri Gundawar and many others came in contact with Swami Rakananda. In this way these people started visiting Ramakrishna Math Nagpur. Srimat Swami Bhaskareshwaranandaji Maharaj, then Adhyaksha of Ramakrishna Math Nagpur inspired these people and they became the devotee of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda. During the period 1958 to 1960 all these people received an initiation.

It is the administrative headquarters of Yavatmal District. Yavatmal is around 90 km away from divisional headquarters Amravati while it is 670 km away from the state capital Mumbai.
