Poojya Swamiji’s life of spiritual dissemination in English started from Jamshedpur in 1966. Initially, weekly satsang was held rotationally in devotee’s homes, and the discourses during the annual Jnāna Yajna were conducted in the Madrasi Sammelani hall.
With a lot of dedication, love, and sacrifice, the devotees used to host Poojya Swamiji and party for several weeks during the Jnāna Yajnas. Finally, Sri Ratan Tata, appreciating the value-oriented work done by Poojya Swamiji for Jamshedpur citizens over four decades, allotted a 0.75 acre land in Circuit House Area (North) for establishing CIRD-Jamshedpur. The Centre was inaugurated in February 2013.
