means Copper and Pothi means an
oracle. From a simple external and physical point of view, the
T‚mrapothi is a small book-like
object consisting of fifty-four copper plates (~
3" x 8"). When one goes there, and thinks about any question or puts the
question written on a paper on the
T‚mrapothi, the answers to the
questions are temporarily inscribed on its pages. The thinking process or
putting the paper-containing-questions is started after a short ritual
(by the Brahmin who operates the
pothi) which takes about
half-a-minute. The answers are inscribed instantaneously and after the
book is closed, they all disappear.
The answers are read by the Brahmin who operates the
Pothi; but on a formal request one can see the letters by
himself or herself. The answers come in the form of ancient old-styled
prose, and the Brahmin interprets them and explains after reading the
prose aloud. As the letters/scripts are very small and the
not too strong, it is usually read using a magnifying glass (lens).
It is normal that one has questions and at times seeks some
timely solution. The T‚mrapothi at
Kakatpur is a rare phenomenon, to the astonishment of many strictly
scientific-minds, which serves the people having some needs. The barrier
of language is nothing but a human-limitation. But for this divine-device,
the language is no limitation. One can think the questions or write it in
any language. However, the answers on this particular
T‚mrapothi comes only in Oriya
language. You got to have a translator (from Oriya to your language).
There is another pothi
, made up of different metal, which can receive and give
answer in various other languages (discussed somewhere later).

Based on authors experience (open to all,
anyone can go):
place is situated in the front end of Kakatpu, a small town/moderate
village in Orissa, India. The nearest major town is PIPILI,
approximately 20 kms from Bhubaneswar, capital of Orissa. From
Bhubaneswar to Pipili one can take a bus, and from there to KAKATPUR,
there are some inconvenient conveniences. If affordable and you are in a
group, its better to take a TAXI. The small ASHRAM or HUT is situated at
the front-end of the village, just facing the town-SCHOOL. As its a
small place, and has only one school at the front-end, you cannot miss
it if you reach the town.

What to do after you reach ?
After you reach there, you first have to enlist your name and then wait till
your turn comes. How long you have to wait depends on how many
people are already there in the line. The preferable time is early
morning, so best is to try to reach at about 7.00 am. Then you have a
good chance before 10.00 or 11.00 am.

After your term comes, get inside the inner room after wearing some
clean dresses (preferable typical old-cultured Indian dhotis). The gents
have to wear such a dress as it might not work with the largely-used
trousers and pants. The ladies can wear a sari
or traditional ladies-dresses. Make sure that you did
non-vegetarian food or alcohol the day you are seeking as the
Tamrapothi will stop working till its again made alive by the operator. You can see

is a bunch (54 precisely) of thin copper plates. These plates are all
blank (there are no letters
or Symbols in each page) and collectively are all
kept on another larger sized metal plate (a "Bhubaneswari
Yantra" is inscribed on it).
The pundit performs a small ritual (about 30 seconds) and
activates the pothi before each time a seeker asks questions (explained
below). After this activation process, a seeker can ask questions.
There are two ways
to ask your question (only after the activation):
Hold a piece of chalk (will be provided there) and touch it with the
forehead; then think your questions what you want to be answered. Then
put the chalk in the ORACLE and open any page. The answers pop-up
starting from the page you open.
Write your questions on a paper, fold
it, put it on the ORACLE. Then touch the provided chalk
in your forehead and request mentally to answer the questions and
open any page; the answers will pop-up.(see photo below
of the various parts). Even if you write your questions in a paper, fold
it, and put it on the ORACLE it is important that you still touch the
chalk in forehead and make a mental request with respect or atleast with
modesty. This mental request process forms the link between you and the

The answer is: as you like. There is no fixed rate, no price, no demand,
no verification. The service is for free, but the Brahmin has to live,
has to maintain his family and survive. There is a small cloth, on which
you can put whatever amount you feel like, depending on your
satisfaction, will, and financial abilities.

choosing to answer this question, which rather is very abstract, the
authors have chosen a difficult task. Because, only a mystic knows the mystery of his mysticism. But below
is an explanation which was partly answered by the divine itself and
partly by one of the five disciples of His Holiness Baba Shri Buddhanath
Das. The working principles are similar for all of Shri Achyuta's
pothis and are described below in a common perspective.
As for every machine, there are two aspects: Science or the
theory, and technology or the engineering part. Drawing a roughly parallel
comparision, the working of the
has also two parts:
there is a
SADHANA behind; the Science part
the technical aspect.
1) The sadhana behind: SHUNYA SADHANA
and and the motivation behind the creation:
(The following answer was by the
divine (English translation of a theme from the
after the question was put by the author)
The answers in the tamrapothi
are given by
Mahapurusha Achyutananda vide Lord Jagannath. At that
time (~500 years before), in Orissa, there were no proper medication
facilities and other life-saving and problem-solving avenues. Hence,
this t‚mrapothi was instrumented by Mahapurusha
Achyutananda as a divine gift, specially for suggesting Ayurvedic
medicines that will be affordable and available to the seekers. Even
though medicine was the primary focus, it was/is capable of providing
every type of solution. He had instrumented it in Orissa (Udra desha)
but the t‚mrapothi 's service is for the whole mankind. It remained hidden
for a while (few hundred years) and is again recovered at this time to
do the crucial Yugakarma (duty of the era).
Mahapurusha Achyutanada was a
Shunya Sadhak. "Shunya Shunya MahaShunya,
tamadhye Parambrahma". This sadhana, in a simplified sense,
means: to reach the Sun, which is a symbolic for the ParamBrahman,
with one's soul. One who can reach the Sun with his soul and come
back, gets the ability to know the answers to everything in the
Universe (BiswaBrahmandaGyana). He also gets the ability to enter to
any other body living or non-living (Jada athaba
Jivanta). In this way, he (Mahapurusha) answers in the
has the instrumental capacity
to survive one solar-era (i.e. till this Sun is there the pothi can
work, until he himself wants to take it back). Also who has become
successful in ShunyaSadhana has no
limitations regarding language, as language is only a
human-limitation, the thought-waves are all the same. The Sun, as we
see it, is not a stand-alone naked body. It has 10 different layers or
rings (solar layers). When a sadhak performs the
ShunyaSadhana, he successively penetrates each of the layers.
Each layer has its own property, and bestows different knowledge. By
doing this sadhana, Mahapurusha Achyutananda
had acquired every knowledge. No wonder, the
answers to every question, be it spiritualism,
illness, Science, or society. One who succeeds in
ShunyaSadhana, has no limitation anymore, he can be emerged in
God and also can maintain his/her own identity. In another language he
becomes a part of the Parambrahman. This was also the reason, that he
had written (could write) so many literature, including concept of
body-spirit-soul, atoms, molecules, nuclear science, solar science,
space science, and very high spiritualism etc. The "Shunya
Yantra" is a symbol which offers this knowledge; if one sees
carefully it consists of ten circles representing ten solar layers
and the dot (bindu) representing the
parambrahman. By virtue of this ShunyaSadhana, Mahapurusha
Achyutananda has instrumented this answering device in the form of a
Practically, he could make it in anything (living or non-living), as a
ShunyaSadhak acquires these capabilities.
2) The working-technique behind:

Yantra" made of Copper. In all the pages of

inscribed as letters in

German etc. The detail procedure is

fraction of the two parts of the silver oracle is held by Pundit
Amareswar Mishra. The silver oracle can provide answers in multiple
languages, although, Pundit Mishra is not conversant in so many
languages. The length of the answers are usually relatively more
detailed in Copper Oracle and relatively brief in Silver Oracle. This is
just a common observation, however, is not a rule and, of course, Shri
Achyuta can provide answers as he wishes.]

works (continued from the paragraph before the Photo):
(the explanation of the working technique behind this unusual
phenomenon given by one of the 5 disciples of His
Holiness Baba Shri Buddhanath Das):
holiness (Mahapurusha Achyutananda
and Baba Shri Buddhanath Das) use to answer via the T‚mra (copper) and Roop‚ (silver)
handled by Pundit Amareswara Mishra at Kakatapur,
Orissa, India. According to my conception,
it has a mechanism similar to that of a
television. As we know, a television
set has a machine (Yantra) which, through
Arial/Antenna (another Yantra), receives the
photos and the voice (as electric transmission) and applying energy
(electricity) we are able to see the picture using a picture tube
(Yantra) and hear the sound. Likewise, the pothi is
kept on a plate on which Bhubaneswari Yantra has been carved. You may
think of it as the machines of television set. Pothi
consists of several plates, and several Yantras
have been carved on each of the plates of the pothi. Pundit Amareswara
Mishra (popularly and locally called
as Bhaina) uses a
(palm-leaf pothi) where
have been written (see photo above). He applies
to the pothi.
The Yantras disappear the moment energy is applied to it and those lines
are converted to letters and a person could read the scripts. Then the
question arises how the answers come from space and how the
reads the mind of the person who is putting the question
: all the thought process (though waves) of a human being and the work
he had done has been transmitted to the space (in a subtle frequency
domain) and stored therein. The time a question is put, the
thought process is transmitted to the space and through
pothi one can know the questions
put, and the Yantra brings the answers from the
space which has already been stored therein. The truth is: all answers
are already there somewhere (spiritual people call it SHUNYA or "vaccum")
and it is grabbed forcibly by some means. Nothing is new or was not
known before, the question is when you know it.
Ram Das (one of the twelve
previous incarnations of Baba Shri Buddhanath Das)
was the only disciple of the Mahapurusha Achyutananda, who was able to
read the mind of his
Guru through his Bhaba (feelings). His
guru had invented this procedure and the execution part is done by Ram
Das. Guru and Shisya are one and the same. Having two bodies and
one Bhaba and thought process. As you know Baba
is the 13th birth of Ram Das. If
anything is not stored in the space the question of the questioner
directly comes to the mind of Baba Shri Bhudhanath Das who sends the
answers to the space and pothi attracts the same from the space and
Bhaina could read the same. I am having the knowledge of several
in Orissa and one pothi in the South (of India). I am having no knowledge
about the South-India pothi. Among
discovered in Orissa, it appears that all of them belong to
Mahapurasha Achyutananda except one which belongs to Nabaratna (nine
GEMS) of king Vikramaditya. There can not be any dispute regarding the
techinque but the operater of
has to apply the energy (Mantra)
perfectly to revitalise the Yantra to letters. The operator should be a
Sadhaka to apply
(energy) to Yantra (machine). Since all of them are not able to do this
perfectly, so always the true answers are not coming on pothi.
Mahapurusha Achyutananda had written thousands of books, but in fact he
had not himself written all, the moment he thinks about the subject, Ram
Das used to write the same immediately on
sun‚ pothi (Gold) by means of Pancha
(five) kalam (pen).

From where the
pothis were recovered
was recovered from a well of Abadhuta Math,
at Konark, in Puri district, Orissa, India, where
Baba Artatrana Das is the presiding Seer.
The Roop‚pothi (Silver
Oracle) was recovered from Gupteswar, the Shiva Khsetra,
Koraput district, Orissa, India by his holiness (Baba
Shri Buddhanath Das) and was handed over to Pundit
Amareswara Mishra to operate the same. The
answers in 14 different languages:
some Indian languages like Oriya,
Hindi, Tamil etc. and some Latin-based languages e.g., English, German,
French etc. The answers in
in poetic form where as in the Roop‚pothi
they appear in straightforward sentences.

In Achyuta's words: origin of Pothi and
who is Baba Buddhanath Das
Adjacent to the Copper Oracle, there
is another small Pothi, comprising palm-leaves with pre-written text by
Achyuta. The text is written in Sanskrit language using Oriya script.
This text briefly describes the circumstances when Achyuta made this
Pothi and there were Ashta-Sakhis who assisted him. It is also stated
therein that the Pothi will be at the Arka Khsetra (land of Sun), which
is a name for Konark, where one of his own persons (Arta Baba) will be
there. He also mentions that his disciple (Ram Das) will be there in
this time in the name of Buddhanath and briefly describes how his
disciple's physical appearance will be. Achyuta also wrote that it will
be operated by a Brahmin and strongly warns anyone else to attempt to
operate his Oracle without his instruction, else there will be severe
physical and spiritual consequences. He also mentions, if one seeks with
faith and focus, the Pothi's instructions and answers will hold without
doubts. Upon request, Pundit Amar Mishra narrated selected parts of this
pre-written text (click
here). More details about the Pothi, relation to Baba Buddhanath
Das and Pundit Amar Mishra is described by Achyuta in one of his works (Parardha

For initiating the Pothi for a specific person, the person has to tell his name only and the Pothi is activated for that person. This process of activation is the necessary first step for asking questions.

After the ritual, a person can ask questions (written on paper and subsequently folded, or mentally ask by touching the chalk on the forehead). Then the answers come from the page opened by the seeker.
This shows how the answers come in pages and Pundit Amareswar Mishra reads and explains the answers.

While touching the Chalk on forehead, the seeker must think in mind for a few seconds and mentally request Mahapurusha to give answers. It is important to make a mental contact.
Rarely it may happen that, if one just touches the chalk on the forehead without making a "brief" mental request and puts the chalk on Pothi to open, then there will be no answer.
Here, the denial comes in the form of a Yantra (2 circles at one center, lotus petals inside the circles, and 1 triangle). Then Pundit will allow to ask again and the ritual is also repeated.
For those who do not know who Shri Achyuta is and whom to request mentally, just think with modesty, "Please answer my following questions".

provided to Garoi Ashram and this webpage. We do not upload these videos or photos in other freehosting websites or tubes, due to copyrights, and are not interested in any sort of advertising or even remotely convincing
the contrarians (they are relatively right as per their own model of (mis)understanding the truth!. The sad thing is even if they spend their life in search of truth, which we genuinely appreciate, they miss
a turning point!). If one is interested or in need, he must put the effort, thats it!, and its not upto
us to alleviate their limitations, satisfy their demands, and remove their ignorance. Shri Achyuta does not need anyone's approval and there are enough people who genuinely need help and we look forward to serve them.
- Sometimes, we receive questions/invitations: "Can the Pothi be taken to such and such place; we will arrange and pay for it?". The answer is "we do not know!". The question "MUST" be asked to Shri Achyuta via his Oracle, and if he permits,
only then can it be taken elsewhere. Your financial abilities, modern facilities, and technical marvels may be fascinating and on top of the world, but are meaningless to Him; only if there is devotion and a higher purpose, he may allow.
The attempt to lure "Nitya" (eternal) with "Anitya" (transient and mundane, e,g., wealth) is futile- what is Nitya (eternal) is Satya (truth)- and Achyuta is the unfailing eternal soul.
No one, including Pt A. Mishra who operates Pothi, has any exclusive authority to decide over pothi.
- Shri Achyuta has told, "I will answer everyone who seeks, but I also do see their intentions". He prescribes remedies, if there is any, and guides, but never interferes directly exercising his spiritual
powers. Direct intereference goes against the principle of the creation. If one follows his advice, one "will" find relief, but the seeker must act. He won't avert the death of a person if Kaala is there, destroy seeker's competitors, or force
people to go against their own will. "Devotion, faith, compassion, patience, and respecting the cosmic laws are the qualities of a true yogi".
- Some people, even without having ever seen this, and out of their limited experience & understanding say:
"Why an Oracle? Ooo (mockingly), if he is that accomplished why he does not appear physically and just talk?". Such provoking challenges are non-sense. Firstly, he has said, "Oracle is just a medium but a
Sunya Sadhak can also write on anywhere, e.g., a piece of wood". But its understandably better to have a consistent way (repeated in the same manner) to let people know what and where to go.
Secondly, why should Shri Achyuta (or, for that matter, The God in the form of Vishnu or Shiva or Father) appear and talk to us ? Are we that important and ready for that, huh? He is already kind enough
to provide a material medium (pothi) to seek his wisdom.
- The informational page has been designed to let people know about Shri Achyuta and the people in need to find possible remedies, and should not be construed as an attempted convincer.

authors do not urge to believe on the absolute
precision of the
but if the questions are not too
abstract (e.g. how to fly
instantaneously), the answers are more than just
satisfactory. Also, the phenomenon described is a fact and is open to
one and all. Anyone can follow the route described above and examine in
his/her own way. Prevalently, the oracle gives the answers in Oriya
language, but I am aware, there is another one which is
multi-lingual. I suppose, upon request,
Pundit Amareswar Mishra will also use the multi-lingual
(made up of silver); but I cannot promise whether he will definitely
fulfill your wish. The
gives answers in 14 different languages:
Oriya, English, many south-Indian
languages (e.g. Tamil), Hindi, and German etc (the
primary author has tried it; lucky enough !). But it might
be difficult for the operator to read these languages as he has no
formal language-education. So its better to get the answers in
in Oriya and take the help of a translator if
one does not know Oriya. However, for the sake of realizing the fact,
one can request and try to see that. One can also carry a dictation machine and record
what he speaks aloud to analyze later. In the whole event,
anybody can see the instantaneously appearing
letters/sentences and explanations and that your thought-process is
actually being read !
This oracle is probably one of the few existing
wonders, that is open to all and can also be independently verified. It is not
limited to any religion, language, or nationality as long as one follows
the basic regulations (described above) and is modest while asking
questions. Arrogance and pride are not going to help; but unbiased
inquisitiveness (with modesty of course) is not
for more than 25
(since 1980 apprx.). Everyday (except Wednesday, eclipse-days, and
Garoi function days) it serves between 20 to 50 people on various
issues like job, disease, social complications, Sadhanas (spiritual
practice) including mantras, yantras, business issues, etc. It is an
undisputed-Wonder created by the great saint Mahapurusha Achyutananda.
As is heard by the author from some reliable sources of the Garoi
Ashram, the time of Yuga Karma is very close. Most probably, the service
will be closed soon for the public once the Yuga Karma proceeds
rigorously. Meanwhile, Baba Shri Buddhanath Das also decidedly left his
mortal body, to act from the Shunya, leaving behind the Pothi in a
working condition for the Yuga Karma to be performed in discipline. So the authors cannot guarantee how long it will
be allowed for the public, but as of 03-Jan-2011, it is still working and
is expected to be open to all at least for some time (we shall make every effort to update any newer info here, if available).
Strange are the ways of the divine, which
at times surpasses the human understanding to confirm the fact that,
there is something beyond what we have perceived so far or what we can
perceive. It is as foolishness as to reject a fact out of prejudice as
to accept certain things blindly. Accepting blindly is the
characteristic of a gullible mind; at the same time rejecting facts
because of limited experience, knowledge, exposure, and prejudice is a
strong indication of "lack of imagination, vision, and understanding".
Therefore, the authors would recommend the devotional-hearted and the
inquisitive-minds to witness this exceptional divine instrument, in
person, before Shri Achyuta and Baba Buddhanath Das draw it back to
another prolonged state of hibernation once Achyuta's Yugakarma will be
close to completion.
