This site is the birthplace of the social activist and spiritualist Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar (spiritual name Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, or simply ‘Baba’). He was born on the full moon in May 1921.
The building in this photo is new and is used for practising meditation. The sign for “Abha Seva Sadhan” is a service project giving free medicine to the poor. The sign “Baba Naam Kevalam” is a mantra meaning ‘Everything is an expression of one infinite, loving Consciousness’.
Baba’s orginal house was to the right of this photo. The building is no more. Instead, a garden of many flowers and plants is being nurtured in its place.
