After the Self Realization of Being the "SaddGuru", Srimat Swami Nigamananda Paramhansadev engaged himself in the onerous responsibility of spiritual upliftment of Common man's life through prayer and religious exercises . He also composed the books like Yogiguru, Jnaniguru and so on, published the monthly magazine 'Aryadarpan' the literary medium of the everlasting religion and set up monasteries, religious homes and associations. But still he did not derive complete satisfaction.
Eventually on the occasion of his stay at Gambhira of Kashidham, when he stayed there for the occasion of "KumbhaMela" he felt the inward urge for holding the Sarbabhouma Bhakta Sammilani (summit conference of his votaries). From that place he wrote to his devoted disciples -

Hence I have decided to hold the first conference at 'Kokilamukh Saraswat Math' . The 11th, the 12th and the 13th day of the month of Pous have been fixed up as the dates for holding the conference. Hence you should reach Kokilamukh on the 10th day of Pous. You must attend this conference by leaving aside all preoccupations however important they may be. I hope that you will abide by this order of mine with genuine interest unless some accidental mishap prevents you from doing so." - Swami Nigamananda
He derived utmost satisfaction by initiating this practice of holding the summit conference of his devotees. He deigned to grant to his disciples the privilege of having an easy access to him. The three principal objectives of the conferences of devotees are:
Formation of ideal household life (Adarsha Grihastha Jiban Gathan) Consolidate the power of corporations (Sangha Saktir Prathistha) and Interchange of spiritual experiences (Bhaba Binimaya). The mission of Srimat Swami Nigamananda Paramhansadev is to establish universal brotherhood by harmonizing all religions and preaching the message of the everlasting in a non-communal way and to endow humanity with the supreme gift of realizing the fundamental essence of
