The history of the Cuttack Dhyana Mandali dates back to the year 1990, when a few devotees started gathering for group meditations on every Sunday at the residence of Shri Rabi Narayan Dash in Tulsipur, Cuttack. Subsequently the location for the meditations was shifted to "Srabani", a residence of Late Sri Biju Pattnaik in Tulsipur. From 1995 onwards, the devotees moved to a more spacious place, the first floor of Veda Bhavan at Tulsipur, where the Cuttack Dhyana Mandali is continuing its operations till today.
The group meditations are being conducted on the first floor of the Veda Bhavan on every Sunday from 5 pm to 7 pm. In addition, the Cuttack Dhyana Mandali organizes spiritual group retreats and public satsanga every alternate year, conducted by the YSS sannyasis. Please contact the Cuttack Mandali for more information about any upcoming programmes in the area.
The Cuttack Dhyana Mandali also conducts a few charitable activities locally. It is involved in distributing "Braille books", shawls, chadar and stainless steel containers to physically challenged school children. The Mandali also provides customized footwear for leprosy home inmates. Recently, the Mandali constructed a small three-room asbestos roof building for the leprosy affected inmates of Nehru Palli at Cuttack.
Every Sunday: 5 pm to 7 pm
