Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra, the full-filler of the best, is a Sod-Guru and a founder of Satsang- a man making organization. Sree Sree Thakur appeared as ‘Kalki Avatar’ on 14th September in 1888 in Pabna district of then East Bengle (Now in Bangladesh) in undivided India in a Kanyakubja Brahmin family (Shandilya Clan). His father was Shiva Chandra Chakravarty who was a pious Brahmin, a follower of Truth and out and out a man of word. His mother’s name is Monomohini Devi who was very devoted to God from her childhood. Monomohini Devi received her Dikhsha (Initiation) in her dream at the age of eight from Hujur Maharaj of Radhaswami Satsang, Dayalbag, Agra. Sree Sree Thakur respected his parents a lot throughout His whole life. He is the eldest of all his siblings. He always sacrificed all his comforts for the happiness of His younger brothers and sisters.
Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra was an Incarnation of God like all the past prophets namely Sri Ramchandra, Sri Krishna, Lord Buddha, Lord Jesus, Prophet Mohammad and Sri Ramkrishna. All the past prophets including Sree Sree Thakur are the embodiment of Supreme power, the Great Creator. They descended at various times with God’s Message for the welfare of mankind irrespective of cast, creed, ethnic division and geographical boundaries. Sree Sree Thakur is regarded as full-filler the best (Purusottom) by millions of His disciples all over the world. Devotees of Sree Sree Thakur are known as Satsangees. Throughout His life He served thousands of people with exceptional love according to their instincts and character so that people could live a peaceful and enriched life.
His ideology is based on three major concepts:
GOD is one and all Prophets are the same. The Latest Prophet is always the Fulfiller of all the previous prophets. He said Ram, Krishna, Jesus Christ, Mohammad, Chaitanya & Ramkrishna Paramahans have been the Prophets & we should respect them all. Blasphemy to anyone of them is blasphemy to all.
Living Ideal (Guru in flesh & blood/ a living Guru). He said that the abstract God can not be comprehended by humans. So, we need a living Guru who has the attributes (some, if not all) of God. This Guru is the living embodiment of all ideals of life. When a Prophet comes He is called Sod-Guru, the most perfect Guru, and blessed are those who get such a Prophet. This chain of Prophets will continue as long as the creation exists.
Marriage on the principles of Varna system. That is first marriage of a man in his own varna ( Savarna Marriage), then he can marry females of the lower varnas (Anulom Asavarna marriage/ Hypergamous marriage). The former is to preserve the original genetic stock of the lineage, and the subsequent ones to breed new bio-diversities. But he warned against Hypogamous ( Pratiloma) marriages, where the girl is from higher varna. Progeny of such marriages are distorted by birth, as, Sree Sree Thakur “inferior sperm destroys the nodules of a superior ovum”. These people, however brilliant, are anti-existence, anti-life by birth, and can not be cured.
According to Sree Sree Thakur the main pillars of life are Education, Industry and Good Marriage.
His five basic Principles of life are:
- Jajan: Jajan is to exalt himself with pious worship. Above all, it is to materialize His Ideology in every aspect of life.
- Jaajan: Jaajan is to exalt others with pious worship and encourage them to know about Thakur’s Ideology and follow these in their own life.
- Istavriti: According to Sree Sree Thakur, ‘Istavriti is practical materialized condensed form of psycho-physical ascetic devotion’.
- Swastayani: Swastayani is what drives a man to the path of growth and existence of being that keeps the people hale and hearty.
- Sadachar: Sadachar is to keep physical, mental and spiritual health sound by maintaining hygiene through good deeds, good behavior and most importantly through practicing Ideal-centric life.
Sree Sree Thakur did not need to set up an organization but Satsang evolves around Him spontaneously. Topobon School, Biswa Biggan Kendra, Mechanical Workshop, Publishing house came up at Himayetpur in Pabna. Sree Sree Thakur was a born scientist. He had a deep inquisitive knowledge about science. He talked with His disciples such topic or subject of Genetics, Eugenics and other issues of everyday life that many research is being conducted on that subject at present. He not only talked about science but also talked on every spheres of life like Religion, Spiritualism, Education, Society, Politics, Love, Service, Culture, Marriage, Philosophy, psychology, Health, Economics and what not. These are the perfect guidelines for leading a complete and enriched life. The sayings of Thakur came spontaneously like showers of heavenly mercy with the solution of diverse problems of men according to the needs of the different persons. The sayings have a majestic charm. Thakur did not utter a single word from his idea or imagination only. In fact, all His utterances are based on the solid foundation of His firsthand personal experience and realization. These sayings have gravity which not only attract devotees but also solves diverse problem of mankind.
In His younger years (from around 24 to 26 years old) he would do Kirtan with his followers. Sometimes during kirtan, he would go into a trance. During trance, He uttered various statements in various languages like Bangla, English, Hindi and so on. These utterances were not being written down due to the lack of proper scribes. It was only later, when his name started spreading everywhere that people of high educational merit started coming and they wrote down whatever they could understand and grasp amid this flurry of heavenly messages. His utterances of only 72 days were later collected and published in a book called Punyapunthi or The Holybook. Never did he write a book by hand except one; Satyanusaran (“The Pursuit of Truth”), but this was only a letter to one of his disciples, Atulchandra.

His message relating to the well-being of mankind were published in various volumes in English and Bengali. Among these compilations are:
