Although the first Sri Aurobindo Study Circle began in Rairangpur of Mayurbhanj District in 1948, the movement grew gradually from 1960. In Cuttack, weekly Pathachakra sessions were conducted in the residences of Narendra Kishor Das (Naribabu) and Lalit Mohan Ghosh. Around the same time, Nimain Charan Mohapatra started a Study Circle in the Railway colony of Retang in Jatni. He also organized the first State level Conference there. Later in 1964, Gobinda Tej on behalf of the Sri Aurobindo Society held a Conference from April 4-7 in the Barabati Stadium. The next Conference took place in 1968.
