By // No comments:

When I visited Jhalida, Vishuddhananda Tapovan Ashram in 2017 for the 2nd time. I came to know that daily puja at Panchmundi Asan had been suspended since many years. Finally, after a lot of efforts with the co operation of Baba's great grandson, Shri Debashis Chattopadhyay..I finally appointed Royal Priest Mr Manik Chatterjee to continue daily puja since June 2018.
I have also tried to arrange some fund to manage the expenses. So, following is my declaration for last financial year.

Ashram Expenses
1. June to March (10 Months)= 2500 INR * 10 = 25000 INR
2. Other Temple Requirements = 3500 INR (Approx)
Total= 28500 INR

Expenses Managed

Due to my profession and as an active member of ashram, I have to be always in public dealings. I have met both good and bad experiences. I realize, in spite of so much negativity all around, due to some good people, this nature is in balance and thousands of people can still hope for a better life.

Dr P.K.Das is one of them with a golden heart. He has his own nursing home and been practicing in Jhalida for last 32 years. He has a long time wish to set up an English medium school. Therefore, Swami Vishuddhananda Gurukul Sikshayatan has come in to reality in few months. The school will have a grand opening on 10thFebruary, 2019 on the occasion of Ma Saraswati Puja. Devotees and disciples of ashram are hereby welcome; Just confirm us about your arrival so that we can make necessary arrangements.

Raanchi is also a big railway station near Jhalida, Buses are available from this side also.

The Most Important Point In This Article
Ma Panchmundi Mahason Temple is now around 100 years old. This building is urgently need to be repaired. In the rainy season, water is licking down through the roof and ruining the puja materials. Though this time, I have bough an Almirah to keep these materials safe, but we need a permanent solution. Walls are also soaking the water and being damaged.

Windows's partitions are collapsed, door condition is poor. Everything need to be replaced, colored. Also we are planning to make a shaded seating area for the mediators in front of Ma Panchmundi like Ma Nabamundi Mahason, Varanasi.

Dr P.K.Das only for these purpose; appealed for some financial help from the disciples and devotees of this ashram. He and his team will take care of the rest.

Importance of Vishuddhananda Tapovan Ashram, Jhalida-
As of our organization, We have now VIsuddhashram Bardhaman, VIshuddhananda Bhavan Kolkata, Bhrigu Ashram Bondul, VIshuddhananda Kanan Varanasi, Vishuddhananda Tapovan Jhalida those Baba had founded with his own hands.

Long time ago; Madhabananda Paramhansadev of Gyanganj Ashram (our parent organization at Tibet) had been practicing his sadhana for around 700 years at Jhalida. Later, as per Gyanganj orders, he had left his mortal body and took rebirth as Baba Vishuddhananda’s elder son. In this life, Durgadas was initiated by Baba Bhriguram Paramhansadev and also achieved “paramhansa” at an earlier age. Durgadas Paramhansadev easily recalled his past life and often visited Jhalida for his Panchamundi Asan where Madhabananda used to seat. Uddhab Kumar Singha, King of Jhalida was the disciple of Baba Vishuddhananda. Therefore, He donated all the area adjacent to panchmundi asan, made an ashram building and gifted to Baba Vishuddhananda.
After Baba Vishuddhananda (1937), Durgadas Parmahansadev (1944), Gui Baba (Shri Saroj Mohan Chattopadhyay, Elder Grandson of Baba) used to take care of this ashram till 1979.

Later on, Gui Baba’s wife, Shrimati Gitarani Chattopadhyay and other disciples of ashram used to celebrate Gui Baba’s birthday for few years. But gradually, there left no permanent resident to look after this ashram. Debashisda (Gui baba’s son) who is permanent resident of Bardhaman Vishuddhashram tried several efforts to run this ashram but there was no permanent solution. The ashram got vacant and many things were stolen, then way to its slow destruction. Even Anti Socials might be active there.
Few Years Back;
In 2012 or earlier, my Gurdeva, Shri Sarosimohan Chattopadhyay (Baba Vishuddhananda’s Grandson) was alive. I came to Jhalida for the first time. A member of royal family entertained me. I took many photos of ashram’s poor condition and reported back everything to my Gurudeva. But, nothing had changed.

In 2014 last, my Gurudeva granted me as his successor also took a promise from me that I would look after his family and Bardhaman Vishuddhashram.
I visits Bardhaman Ashram once in a week, Bondul Ashram once in a month, Beneras Ashrams twice and Kolkata Ashram few times earlier but now, It remains locked.
In 2017, I went to Jhalida for the second time, worse condition as it’s expected and this time suprisingly, I come to know that Daily puja at Panchmundi Asan has been suspended for 10-15 years. On few occasions, likely on  Kali Puja, local people gathers here and perform puja.  A matter of great grief that An Yogi like Baba Vishuddhananda Paramhansadev’s temple has remained abandoned this way.


I came back to Bardhaman, posted articles on facebooks in front of hundreds of ashram devotees, talked to Baba’s family members, trust members. I faced a politics of blaming each other and the second “Being an outsider Who I am to interfere on this?”. In last 12 years; I have spent more than one lakh rupees, hours of regular involvement and service in every possible ways, compromised my study, carrier and Still I am an outsider. 
None was to ready to take any charge, finally nothing had happened. Well, I never forget this for a single day. I wanted only to start the daily puja at Panchmundi Mahasan by any means. 
Every year, many devotees go to Bondul Ashram, some of them also visit me on the way at Bardhaman. A Lawyer from Hydrabad with his team came to visit Bondul in January,2018. Mr Lawyer stayed at my home previous night. We welcomed his team at Bondul and cater them well. Mr Lawyer only deals with big shots, corerpati clients all over India, even R.S.S Chief Mohan Bhagabat had come to visits their home long time ago. Mr Lawyer told himself a great devotee of Baba and offered me what if he could do anything for our ashram. I told about Jhalida ashram and I only want to appoint a priest to perform the daily puja. Repairing ashram building is not that important. He assured to help me with all his influences and would come to Jhalida personally and do the needful. Therefore, I convinced Debashisda accordingly and kept waiting for Mr Lawyer’s arrival. He failed two dates and didn’t come. We will not cruise, only good wishes from our side.  We don’t understand what the meaning of acting like this is.

In April,2018 Debashisda went to Jhalida. I requested him to appoint a priest and my team would bear the expenses. Mr Parimal Chatterjee, his son Mr Manik Chatterjee, they are the priest of royal family of Jhalida and they also performed puja on Panchmundi Mahason by generation. From May onwards, I sent 2500 INR to priest’s account in advance as their salary and other expenses for puja. I take someone as my disciple after years’ of observation. So, I have only three at present. I ask to Mr Kolkata, one of them for only 100 INR/month contributions for this purpose. He agreed and after few days, he denied.
This  explanations seems boring to the readers, but this is just to make you realize how much pain I have gone through.
Well, Mr Nitin Panchnathan, Mr Sandeep Tiwari (Disciple), Mr Krishnakanth Sharma have extended their helps. All the income, expenses will be published after 31st March.

Debashisda loves me a lot and also believes me as one of his well wishers. From Jhalida he told me over phone. A Doctor and his team want to set up an English medium school for the first time in Jhalida in the ashram premises and also do necessary repair work accordingly. I immediately give my consent. I also suggest that School name will be on Baba Vishuddhananda and there should be a photo of Baba in every class room.
I often hear news update that work is going on at Jhalida Ashram and on 26th December,2018 I have reached Jhalida to personally observe those things.
Here the next chapter begins……
