Galeshwar Ashram, Devghat
The name of this Ashram is known by the name of Galeshwar Mahadev which is an Myagdi district. A teen-ager boy of Taplejung district left his home and started to visit various pilgrimages of Nepal and India. Then he came to live in that very Galeshwar Mahadev temple of Myagdi. But he was still searching for proper place for meditation and Sadhana. That is why he left Myagdi and came to live in DevghatDham. Here he selected the suitable place to live for him.
Thus, he here became popular with the name of Galeshwar Baba. But his real name is Ishwarananda Brahmachari. And the name of his hut became Galeshwar Ashram.Because of the ability of true saints he became so popular. He could do extraordinary works and used to tell the past and the future events if asked. He thought to improve DevghatDham as the most valuable Tapobhumi in the world. So, he began to develop it in many ways.
The kings, poets and others very important personalities used to come to see and meet with him at his hut in DevghatDham. Thus he was the first saint who tired to develop this Dham as a real Devbhumi.
After Galeshwar Baba the patron ship of Galeshwar Ashram went to Swami Ashutosananda Saraswati (Dandi Swami). The area of land of this Ashram and the property of it was protected by him as could do his best.
The third person of this Ashram became Shree 1008 Swami Paramananda Saraswati. He took steps to move forward to this Ashram. He was very popular, active and helpful saint of those days.
