BRIEF HISTORY

              Bethany Ashram (the Order of the Imitation of Christ (O.I.C.) was founded by Fr.P.T. Geevarghese Panickaruveettiil O.I.C. (who later became Archbishop Mar Ivanios O.I.C) on Aug.15, 1919 at a place called Perunad, Ranni. Bethany Ashram was the first monastic community in the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church at that time with a unique vision and life-style. The founder Mar Ivanios O.I.C aimed at bringing together the monastic ideals of the Christian East and Indian Sannyasam in a particular life-style which is actualised in a life of intense prayers and apostolic activities. The name Bethany Ashram itself points to this fact. Simple and austere life, atmosphere of intense prayer and solitude, saffron (Kavi) habit, vegetarian food, life in common etc, were some of the basic features of this life style.

      Soon after its foundation, Bethany Ashram became the pilgrim centre of the Malankara Church giving solace to the spiritually starved people. In 1930 most of its members joined their founder on his way to Catholic Church and Bethany Ashram remained the cradle of the historic Reunion Movement. This event ushered in a new era in the life and growth of Bethany Ashram. The members were initially confined to the activities directly related to Reunion Movement. But later, along with that, began to undertake a wide range of apostolic activities with an “All India Missionary Vision’

      In 1966 the Congregation was raised to Pontifical Status. On 24th April 2000 tow provinces were erected in the Congregation - Bethany Navajeevan Province and Bethany Navajyothy Province. Bethany Ashram Pune is the Major Seminary of the Congregation. Bethany Vedavijnan Peeth in Bethany Ashram Pune is an Institute of Oriental Studies that caters to the theological formation of our Seminarians.
