The Shree Shree Anandamayee Sangha (registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860) was called into being in January 1950, through the efforts of some devotees of Shree Shree Ma Anandamayee.
They had been feeling the need to form an association in order to bring closer together the ever-growing number of devotees and admirers of Shree Shree Ma and to take over the management and control of the various Ashrams and institutions which had sprung up in different parts of India and Bangladesh.
The contribution of the Sangha was drafted by legal luminaries of that time, and was based on the principles of democracy, liberalism and same right, duties, privileges and restriction to all members as blessed by Ma Anandamayee. The membership was open to all persons irrespective of colour, creed or caste, who have attained majority , and Institutions, who make an application in writing in the prescribed form and agree to accept the objects of the Sangha as laid down in the Memorandum and to abide by its Rules and Regulations.
