[Sri Ramakrishna Das fondly known as Babaji Maharaj who was a sanyasi at Ajodhya joined Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, on 2nd February 1945. Babaji Maharaj had aspired for the people of Orissa to open to The Mother’s and Sri Aurobindo’s Consciousness...
Babaji Maharaj is an adorable name among all those in Orissa, whose lives have been influenced by The Mother and Sri Aurobindo.
This great personality was born on 14th August,1908, in the village Rairpur of Jagatsinghpur district in Orissa as the youngest child of Sri Krushna Chandra Routray and Smt. Jumpha Devi... With the permission of The Mother, he joined the Ashram at Pondicherry on 2nd February, 1945.
He recognised The Mother and Sri Aurobindo as the Divine incarnated and followed the sadhana of transformation with a great fervor. He prayed to The Mother that all may be conscious of this wonderful opportunity of serving the Divine upon earth and his prayer was answered by Her in the form of response from Orissa.
His able collaborator was Sri Prapatti, a professor from Orissa, who joined him in the year 1954 and through their joint effort of prayer and aspiration, added a new chapter in the spiritual history of Orissa.
This great spiritual personality left his body on 8th November, 1998.]
Loving homage on his birth anniversary. [TNM]
