Yug Chetana Purush Paramhans Yogiraj Shri Shaktiputraji Maharaj(Sobriquet:Ram Baran Shukla)[edit]


Shri Shaktiputraji Maharaj was born in a religious agriculturalist Brahmin family on December 9, 1960 in Bhadrawas (Bhadawa) village, Fatehpur district in Uttar Pradesh. His birth name was Shri Ram Varan Shukla. He was the youngest of all his five brothers and two sisters. His father, Shri Ram Bali Shukla, renounced his household after fulfilling his duties of domestic life and spent the rest of his life in Varanasi as Dandi Sanyasi. He was drawn to spirituality since childhood and adored Durga. In 1984 he married Sushri Manorama Tripathi and opened a business which he chose to close in 1987. At that point he decided to dedicate his whole time to spiritual devotion towards Maa Durgaji. He then took a resolve of accomplishing 108 Mahashakti yagyas, out of which eight have already been conducted at various places in India and the rest 100 will be performed at his Panchjyoti Shaktiteerth Siddhashram. This ashram was founded on 23 January 1997, where uninterrupted recitation of Shri Durga Chalisa has been going on since 15 April 1997 till eternity. This holy place will also witness ignition of five divine flames by the power of yoga (yoga-agni) in future.

A Mustard Field in Akhetpur, Beohari.

Agriculture is counted as the chief economic occupation of the People. From recent years Mustard Farming has become one of the most harvesting crop in Beohari due to balance temperature and the soil of the field which is loose, friable and deep.

The main crops are paddy, cereals like maize, Sorghum, kodo-kutki and other small millets, pulses like tuar and udhad and oil seeds like Til, groundnut, soya-bean and sunflower are also grown.

But A very substantial portion of the population is dependent on agriculture. mainly the tribals are marginal farmers and they prefer the cultivation in the old traditional method. The size of the fields are also very small. The yearly yield of the products from the fields are not enough for their home use. Hence, for the rest part of the year they work on daily wages.

Being mountainous area, Only 9% of the total crop gets irrigation facility. Tribals prefer the cultivation in the old traditional method and depend mainly on rain. The area irrigated by canals, tubewells, dugwells and tanks. Some part of the place are in the shore of Banas River & Jhapar Rivar.
