We appreciate your visit to Shri Gobardhana Pitha Garoi Ashram
The site offers glance of a remarkable Ashram, life of revered saint Baba Shri Buddhanāth Das, PanchaSakhā- the five saints, Gāroi temple of Lord Jagannāth, and the miraculous copper oracle Tāmrapothi that reads questions from the mind and the answers towards counselling and advice are temporarily inscribed.
Shri Gobardhana Pitha Garoi Ashram is situated in the village of Garoi, Jagatsinghpur district of Odisha - an eastern state of India. This relatively unknown place has a high spiritual importance as it is witness to Sadhana of some of the revered masters. As per the writings on the ancient Copper plates of Shri Achyuta, Rishi Janak, Sanak, Vasishtha, Gobardhana and PanchaSakha Jagannath Das, Balaram Das, Jasovanta, Ananta, Achyutnanda had done Sadhana here for sometime, and the magnanimity of this holy precinct will resurface at the end of Kali Yuga. The place is named after the name of Rishi Gobardhana.
A rare temple of Lord Jagannath (Lord Vishnu) constructed under the active instruction of beloved Baba, who is directed by his Guru Mahapurusha Shri Achyutananda Das. The construction was completed in 1993. Following the active directions from Tamrapothi, the work was completed in precisely 1000 days.
At times, reality could be even more surprising than a fiction. Not only is it possible to read the human mind, but also it is feasible to know events outside our space-time horizon. The future is not so unforeseeable, as it is widely believed to be. The Shunya Tamrapothi (copper oracle) draws a thin line between the divinity and the humanity - a grand unified instrument of Mahapurusha Shri Achytananda Das. It appears miraculous from a human perspective, but looking from the pedestal of Shunya, it is just another act of The Master out of compassion. Even five centuries after leaving his physical body, he still guides the seekers and will continue to do so until a specific time related to Yuga Karma.
Among the God-realized souls born in Kalinga (Orissa), Panchasakhā (five friends), who lived in 14th and 15th CE AD, are the most prominent. These contemporaneous five saints Achyutānanda Das, Ananta Das, Jasovanta Das, Jagannātha Das, and Balarāma Das fortified both the spiritualism and the literature. The disciples of the spiritual master Shri Chaitanya are called as Pancha Guru (five Gurus) and together with Shri Arakhsita Das they are known as Sada-Goswāmi (six Lords). Shri Arakhsita Das, a realized Shunya Sādhak, is the patron saint in the Olāsuni hills.
Divine manifestation in human form not only show us a path, protect as a savior, but also live a directed life for a divine-mission. We are fortunate to have had among us such a Saint and
Shunya Sadhak, who left his physical body in 2006.
