Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra

Today man has reached the depth of the ocean and has ventured into the infinity of the skies. He has travelled thousands of miles to reach the Moon, the Mars and is aspiring go even beyond. But it seems man has forgotten how to live like a man on this earth. Sociologists, educationists, politicians have conceded that the biggest crisis mankind faces today is the crisis of ‘human character’. And it is the root cause of all maladies- whether terrorism, communalism, fundamentalism, environmental pollution, global warming, natural calamities, bad governance or corruption. The human character has become rotten today. Man’s greed, jealousy, hunger for power, passions and complexes have led to his own sufferings and misery. So what is the solution to this crisis? How can the human race survive this threat to its own existence? So when sociologists, educationists and statesmen are clueless about this problem and just groping in the dark, Yug Purushottam Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra has come as a panacea of hope. His messages come as a breath of fresh air in the midst of all the suffocation the human race is going through. Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra was born on the 14 September 1888 in Himayatpur, Pabna now in Bangladesh, in a devout Brahmin family. The fact that he would be a special child was apparent even before his birth when a travelling yogi prostrated before mother Monmohini Devi telling her that she would soon give birth to a great soul. When Sree Sree Thakur grew up, in accordance with the wishes of his mother he studied medicine and started practicing Homeopathy. Very soon he acquired the reputation of being a magic healer who could recognize a disease and prescribe a medicine just by seeing a person’s face. Soon, however, his attention turned from treating diseases to treating the internal maladies of mankind and the Satsang movement was born.


His Ideology

An American devotee during his visit to the Satsang Ashram asked Sree Sree Thakur, “Could you please explain your ideology in just two words?” Thakur replied, “Be Concentric.” The devotee asked, “Be Concentric around whom?” Thakur replied, “Be concentric around your Living Ideal.” The devotee asked, “Oh, what if Henry Ford is my living ideal?” Thakur patiently replied, “If Henry Ford is your living ideal, you will become Henry Ford, but you can never become Jesus Christ.” This aforesaid conversation explains the essence of Sree Sree Thakur’s philosophy. Sree Sree Thakur clarified that the prophet of the present age is our true living Ideal. If we love Him and follow Him out of that love, ignoring our lower passions and weaknesses, we become blessed and we grow. If instead we only follow our own whims, ignoring Him, then we receive accordingly. Because of our own short-sightedness, we try to use God for our own petty interests, rather than allow ourselves to be used by God for His interest. However, a man attached to the Living Ideal, becomes a loving, caring, wise, graceful and strong human being. His passions and complexes become servants of the Lord. He always serves the well-being of others and moves and acts according to the principles of Dharma (religion). According to Sree Sree Thakur, “To uphold one’s life and growth with that of others is Dharma.” He said, “I will have no meaningful existence, if I don’t preserve, nurture and exalt others in my environment.” Millions of people came to Sree Sree Thakur to find solutions to their problems and answers to their unresolved questions. Eminent personalities like Mahatma Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, Sree Ma Anandamayee, Acharya Tulasi, Swami Abhedananda, Fazlul Haque, Eugene Exman and many others came to the Satsang Ashram to have the holy darshan of Sree Sree Thakur and engaged with him in intense discussions on issues and problems affecting the mankind. Sree Sree Thakur patiently and lovingly answered their queries to their great relief.

Satsang Movement

Sree Thakur Anukulchandra founded the Satsang Movement as his mission to reform and transform human beings from direction-less self-centered beings into ideal-centric personalities with vigour and vitality. Sree Sree Thakur called Satsang a man making institution. He set up his ashram in Himaitpur, Pabna. Within no time, many activities started building up in the Satsang ashram which included cottage industry, scientific research, publication of divine literature etc. Perhaps Sree Sree Thakur had a premonition about the future division of the country as one fine morning in 1946 he called his followers together and asked them to make arrangements to move to Deoghar, now in the state of Jharkhand, India, leaving behind crores of rupees worth of assets and buildings in Pabna. The Satsang was re-established in Deoghar where it stands to this day. Today there are over 20000 Satsang Vihars and Kendras across the globe. Today, Sree Sree Thakur is not with us in flesh and blood, but he lives on eternally in the hearts, minds and spirits of his ever growing multitude of followers worldwide who feel his soothing, loving, fulfilling touch in their lives and who through their concentric love for Sree Sree Thakur, continue to move towards eternal ‘being and becoming’ along with their family, community and environment. Today there are over 3 crore devotees of Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra across the globe following his path of ‘being and becoming’. At present, his grandson, Sree Sree Dada is the Acharyadev of Satsang and the guiding light to millions of satsangees all over the world.

Satsang Movement in Karnataka

Satsang movement in Karnataka started in the early 1990’s when a few devotees living in Bangalore city started organizing Satsang adhiveshans in their homes. The activities grew in momentum after Sree Sree Dada’s holy visit to Bangalore in December 2000. The Srimandir of Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra was inaugurated on the 14th December 2014 in Bangalore.
