BRIEF HISTORY : The Centre is managed by SRIMA Trust. The constant guidance of Babaji Maharaj and Prapatti helped the members to organise Sri Aurobindo Study Circles in this area and resulting in the installation of Sri Aurobindo’s Relics.
What Sri Aurobindo represents in world’s history is not a teaching, not even a revelation; it is a decisive action direct from the Supreme.
On NH- 5 towards Baleswar you turn left just at U.N. College, Soro and after 12 kms. drive with rural settings you reach village Jalada.
In this village is situated Sri Aurobindo Purna Yoga Kendra managed by SRIMA Trust. This place is the juncture of 3 districts - Balasore, Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar on the north western part of Orissa. Over looking the premise of the centre stands a blud mountain called Debnagari (God’s mountain) a part of the Simulipal range.
The Centre comprises a residential school based on the ideals and teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, a Meditation Hall and the Shrine for the Relics. A trinity of banyan, pipul and neem tree, creating a serene spiritual atmosphere. There is a big pond in the centre of the premises which attracts hundreds of water birds throughout the year.
This centre is founded by the aspiration of devotees of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. This was initiated since more than three decades. The Relics Centre is sorrounded by more than five acres of land belonging to the Trust. There is another patch of land near the main centre which is being developed as an orchard and a botanical garden for educational purposes.
The organisers of this Centre are keeping contact with Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry and All Orissa Sri Aurobindo Study Circle Committee, Matrubhaban, Cuttack and aspire to be guided by the teachings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. Personal correspondence and contact with reverend Babaji Moharaj Sri Ramakrushna Das, Sri Champaklaljee and Prof. Propatti has played a vital role on the formation of this centre and inspiration for the organisers. Moreover, devotees and organisers from various parts of Orissa are involved with the multifarious activities of the centre.
After a long waiting with hope and aspiration Lord Sri Aurobindo has agreed to make this place His abode and His Relics was enshrined on the 9th December, 2003 at 4 PM on His Mahasamadhi day.
Once again all of us prostrate at His Lotus Feet with all our aspiration to become the instruments of the Divine Mother alone for Her work. © 2005 Matrubhaban, Sri Aurobindo Marg, Cuttack-753013
