SriSri Mahanam Angan Ashram Temple, Banamalipur, Agratala, Tripura, India, was founded by SriSri Mahanambrata Brahmachariji. Professor late Kunja Lal Datta (1900-1970) born in Sylhet, now in Bangladesh, the writer of the concise biography 'Prabhu Jagadbandhu' (first edition 25th December, 1999) wrote in his book that "Dr. Mahanambrata Brahmachari, most wise saint and world reputed orator, and also a disciple of Mahendraji became very popular as a religious preacher in Tripura for his efforts". Prof. Kunja Lal Datta was also a disciple of Mahendraji. He served most successfully as a professor after the Partition in M.B.B. College, Tripura. At the insistence of Dr. Mahanambrata Brahmachariji the above biography most hurriedly. Professor Sukhendu Shekhar Dutta of Karimganj, Assam, the writer of the first English biography "Lord Jagadbandhu" (25th December, 1994), a disciple of Dr. Mahanambrata Brahmacahriji, also indicated "Sri Gurudev's desire emboldened and helped me to comple the work". Since no other resources about the establishment of 'SriSri Mahanam Angan of Banamalipur, Agartala, Tripura is available at this time, hope we have some background of how the foundation of SriSri Mahanam Angan of Banamalipur might have originated by the efforts of some of the distinguished disciples of SriSri Mahanambrataji in and around Agartala.
With the commencement of Dhaka-Agartala direct bus service that started recently through Akhaurah checkpost in Bagladesh, the 155 km long route with a maximum of five hours to reach Dhaka from Agartala crossing the Meghna River, will provide a fast, convenient and well priced travel between Dhaka and Agartala Mahanam Sampraday Centers, no doubt! And by the same token, a much more efficient and accessible connection to Kolkata Mahanam Sampraday Centers will now be possible. The two-way fare for this Dhaka-Agartala bus ride is $10 US.
