Sachcha Baba AshramSpiritualism cannot have a better place in Allahabad than Sachcha Baba Ashram. Located near River Yamuna, the Sachcha Baba Ashram has a soothing effect on the minds of anyone seeking spiritual solace.
A Spiritual Sojourn
Sachcha Baba Ashram is located at a distance of 13 km from Allahabad Railway Station. The foundation stone of ashram was laid by Sachcha Baba Kulanandji in 1953. The ashram, founded after Sachcha Baba Kulanandji, was instructed by his guru Sachcha Baba Girnari in his dreams to construct the ashram at the present spot. Sachcha Baba Kulanandji had a dream that the ashram was to build at a spot that faces Triveni Sangam and therefore Sachcha Baba Kulanandji initiated the construction of the ashram.
A yagna as instructed by Sachcha Baba Girnari was performed in the ashram for 12 years from 1960 till 1972. The mantra Prabhu Aap Jago was chanted during this yagna for 12 years. At the commemoration of the yagna a ceremony by the name of Lakschandi Mahayagna was held at the yagna sthal.
Samadhi Sthal of Sachcha Baba
The Samadhi Sthal of Sachcha Baba Girnari is a source of inspiration for numerous followers of Sachcha Baba. Beautifully decked in flowers, the Samadhi Sthal has taken the shape of a memorial. The Samadhi Sthal has been built in the memory of Sachcha Baba Girnari, who attained Mahasamadhi on 16 June, 1944. Daily prayers are offered at the Smadhi Sthal and the followers of Sachcha Baba seek his blessings before initiating any important work.
Sachcha Baba Girnari
Sachcha Baba Girnari who is considered to be the guru of Sachcha Baba Kulanandji was the main person behind the vision of creation of the Sachcha Baba sect in Allahabad. Sachcha Baba Girnari is considered to be the incarnation of Maharishi Narada who is considered to be an eternal guru.
The present birth of Sachcha Baba Girnari is considered to be his 13th birth. Sachcha Baba Girnari took to the present incarnation when he was passing by a river. It occurred to him that the dead body of a saint was floating in the river. Sachcha Baba Girnari decided to enter the body of the saint and carry forward the work being done by the saint. Sachcha Baba Girnari took Mahasamadhi in 1944 in the month of September.
Sachcha Baba Kulanandji
Sachcha Baba Kulanandji was next in the line to be designated as the head guru of the Sachcha Baba sect in Allahabad. He was born in 1914 in village Gaura, Barauni, Bihar. An interesting story associated with the life of Sachcha Baba Kulanandji signifies his spiritual inclination from his early days.
River Ganges used to flow 10 miles away from the village of Sachcha Baba Kulanandji. However in 1914, the region was flooded and the holy waters of the Ganges reached the doorsteps of Sachcha Baba Kulanandji. It somehow occurred to the family members of the Guru that the child’s feet should be dipped in the holy waters. On doing so, the waters of the river receded and Ganges took its natural course.
Sachcha Baba Kulanandji came in contact with Sachcha Baba Girnari in 1936 and eventually became the head Guru after the Mahasamadhi of Sachcha Baba Kulanandji.
Sachcha Baba Kulanandji attained nirvana on 23rd October, 2011 and presently Saint Shri Kachcha is heading the movement.
