Matrupuri, the Abode of the Mother, a multi-purpose organisation is the brain –child of Sri Madhusudan Mishra, who lives now in Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry. It was established in the foot hill of Bhaludunguri ( means a hill of bears) in a picturesque surrounding in May 1968 with the blessings of The Mother. The Mother has approved all the projects of this organization. A symbolic Samadhi of Sri Aurobindo was erected at the top of the Bhaludunguri. Regular mela (fair) was organized regularly since then. But the paucity of fund hindered the flourish of petals. However, the organization has tried a lot to grow. An Integral Education Center has been established. The future plan is to establish the Institute of Sri Aurobindo’s Higher Education & Research. There is a plan to install Sri Aurobindo’s Sacred Relics as soon as possible. The Plan of the Matrimandir has been approved by The Mother. The future of the Matrupuri lies in the Grace of the Divine Mother.
