As discuss earlier that in a year of 1981 there was a celebration of 200 year of Sahajanand Swami on earth & making of Smruti Mandir. At that time very few educational organizations in Kutch existed. So the students came to Bhuj for study and faced difficulties, like finding residence and pure food to eat. So “Sadguru Swami Murlimanohar Dasji” thought to build a hostel “Vidhyarthi Nivas” for migrating students. Now the hostel with a capacity of 100 students has been established for 25 years with “Smruti Mandir”. In which more than 1700 students have studied gaining spiritual knowledge, strong belief in Lord and learning our culture.
