Sadhubela Udasin Ashram
Service and sacrifice, the basic tenets of all religions are lost sight of in the ultra-materialistic modern life, resulting in misery and unhappiness all round.
Sri Sadhubela Udasin Ashram was founded by one of the greatest visionaries of the 19th century Yogiraj Sadguru Acharya Swami Bankhandiji Maharaj in the Year 1818 A.D. at Mumbai, India.
The Ashram owes its origin to a miracle performed by Acharya Swami Bankhandiji Maharaj whose spiritual power cured the son of Dady Shet, a Parsi Philantrophist, of an incurable disease. In gratituted for the divine grace Dady Shet donated a sprawing plot of land to the Yogiraj for starting his Ashram in Mumbai ( then known as Bombay). The lighting of the ‘Dhooni’ ( perpetual sacred flame ) was done with yogic powers by Acharya swami Bankhandiji Maharaj in 1818 A.D. which marked the founding of the Ashram. The ‘Dhooni” ( Flame ) is till date burning and radiating its message of spiritual wisdom. Five years after theis historic event, Yogiraj founded Sri. Sadhubela Tirath in Sukkur, Sindh, Now in Pakistan. The Ashram has a wide network of branches all over India as well as in Japan, Hongkong, London and the United States of America.
