WHAT IS THE AYACHAK
ASHRAMA ?
It is a spiritual institution, helping men and women of all castes and creeds in their onward journey to God. This institution never raises subscriptions, never begs, and never asks for contributions. It helps the needy and feeds the poor, it distributes , medicines to the sick and renders
help to the distressed, but for funds depends fully upon God and God alone. Nobody ever is allowed to know what the Ashrama wants or is in need of.

THE AYACHAK ASHRAMA
AND
THE AKHANDA MANDALI

The "Akhanda Mandali" was started in 1915 when Sree Sree Swami Swarupananda ParamhansaDeva had no fixed centre of work. The "Ayachak Ashrama" was founded in 1927, as the centre of his social, moral and spiritual activities. Only selfless workers are its members and this Ashrama never raises subscriptions for defraying its multifarious expenses.
Anywhere an Akhanda Mandali may be started for performing Congregational Prayers with BrahmaGayatri and Pranava, which so long Shudras and women had no access to.

WHAT IS THE AKHANDA
MANDALI ?
( Its History & Significance)

The Akhanda Mandali has its origin many years back in 1915 as the result of LOVE of Sree Sree Swami Swarupananda Paramhansa Deva FOR ALL. The mantra in which he initiates his disciples having a significance of unbounded limitlessness is styled by him as the Akhanda Mantra. His disciples are not bound with the names of any gods or goddesses. Hence they are named Akhandas. The main programme of work of the Akhanda Mandali is the performance of Samabeta Upasana or Congregational Prayer, in which men and women of any cast, creed and nationality may participate, though the conventional Hindu tradition has for centuries made ONKAR and GAYATRI forbidden fruits to the fairer sex and the Shudras.
The Akhanda Mandali has more than One Thousand branches in East Bengal (BangIa Desh), West Bengal Tripura, Assam, Bihar, Orissa and, other state with their Head-Quarters at the AYACHAK-ASHRAMA, D 46/19A, Swarupananda Street, Varanasi -10 Uttar Pradesh, India.
