Acharya Succession

One of the most striking features of Satsang is its Acharya Parampara—the tradition of the Acharyas. Acharya is the one who by his conduct and words has in reality realized and imbibed in his person all that is good normally and is actively dedicated to inculcating among the masses the lessons of being and becoming by shaping and retouching their normal life-style and not asking to renounce it. He is the very embodiment of good. Sree Sree Thakur is accepted by millions as the Prophet of the age, by just following whose normal way of life many attained saintly personality and stature in their life time. He is the normal Acharya, the Christ of man. And the one who from among His sons of birth and sons of culture has most successfully (preferably from the former, as he in whose veins His holy blood flows is normally acceptable and His worthiest inheritor) imbibed Him in his life and made His interests his own, is His true successor and most acceptable to His followers. He is the Acharya in the absence of the Prophet. The living representative of the Ideal. Sree Ashok Chakravarty, fondly and reverentially called Sree Sree Dada and the eldest of Sree Sree Thakur’s grandsons, is the present Pradhan Acharyadeva of Satsang after the demise of Sree Sree Borda, his father. Sree Sree Thakur is alive in him. To follow him is to follow Sree Sree Thakur. To carry out his wishes and sayings is tantamount to carrying out the wishes of the Ideal.

This Acharya Parampara through which people can still very much feel Sree Sree Thakur, their Supreme Beloved, alive and beautiful and His grace still flowing magnanimously and unhindered, is the very source of the life that one feels pulsating on coming here at Deoghar—among the people, the nature or everything one sees here. It is the presence of the Acharya and the descendants of Sree Sree Thakur dedicated to serving Him and fulfilling His mission and the sentiment of the people towards them that keep Satsang animated, vibrating and very much throbbing with life.
