Antahrashtriya Mandal created in Juna Akhara – Haridwar Kumbh Mela 2010
Baba Rampuri, Mangalanand Puri, & Vasudev Puri named Antahrashtriya Mandal Shri Mahants
During the 2010 Maha Kumbh Mela in Haridwar, Shri Panch Dashnam Juna Akhara decided for the first time in its 1300 year history to extend its hand of blessings and seva outside of Greater Hindustan, by creating an Antahrashtriya (international) Mandal, and honouring Baba Vasudev Puri Ji, Baba Ram Puri Ji, and Baba Mangalanand Puri Ji with the titles of Shri Mahant and the duty of shaping this new mandal according to the niyams, traditions, and ancient spirit of Juna Akhara.In May, 2011, Shri Mahant Ram Puri Ji was appointed by Juna Akhara to represent the akhara outside of India for the purpose of performing a Mahayajna in the United States.
We have discovered that there are people in 90 countries around the world that have some kind of relationship with Juna Akhara – initiated disciples of Naga Babas, uninitiated disciples, devotees, friends, and well-wishers.
We are inviting all of you to get in touch with us so we may get to know who you are, and keep you informed about what is happening inside Juna Akhara and the Sanatan Dharma, from the inside.
The purpose of the Antahrashtriya Mandal is to provide a structure with which we all may serve our gurus and the Akhara in an informed, strategic
way, and thus become a valuable limb of the Akhara that may serve humankind around the world.
We will continue supporting, endorsing, and participating in events, conferences, and workshops in India and around the world, and we will provide resources for our members to be more fruitful in their work, through our focused international networking.
