February 4, 2009: Anniversary Celebrations of Sri Aurobindo's Relics installation, SRI AUROBINDO KENDRA, DHARAMGARH, Kalahandi, Odisha. Babaji Maharaj Sri Ramakrishna Das visited the Dharmagad in 1968 and suggested to construct the Study Circle building. The Mother Herself approved the plan in the year 1970 and the building was inagurated by Champaklalji in the presence of Kamalaben and Prapatti. Again Champaklalaji visited the place in 1982 with Kamalaben and Prapatti. In 1984 Babaji Maharaj suggested to start Relics Centre at Dharamagad and in the year 1999 the construction started. Finally Sri Aurobindo’s Material Presence was installed in 2002. We are ever grateful at Her Feet. Events Calendar
