એક કુટિરના બે નામ
ગાંધીજના વિચારોથી આકર્ષાઈ, એમની પાસે હંમેશ માટે આવેલા વૈરાગી વિનોબા ભાવે આશ્રમમાં ૧૯૧૮ થી ૧૯૨૧ સુધી રહ્યા તે દરમિયાન થોડા મહિના આ કુટિરમાં રહ્યા હતા. એમની સત્યનિષ્ઠા જોઈ ગાંધીજીએ એમને પ્રથમ સત્યામહીનું સન્માન આપ્યું હતું. રોલાંનું એક પુસ્તક વાંચી કાયમ માટે ગાંધીજીના અનુયાયી બનનાર અંગ્રેજ મહિલા કુમ્હારી ખેડેલીના સ્લેડ પણ ૧૯૨૫ થી ૧૯૭૩ સુધી અહીં રહ્યા હતાં. એમની તપસ્યા જોઈને ગાંધીજીએ એમને મીરા નામ આપ્યું હતું.

एक कुटीर के दो नाम
गांधीजी के विचारों से प्रभावित होकर बैरागी विनोबा भावे हमेशा के लिए उनके पास आ गए और १९१८ से १९२१ तक आश्रम में रहे। इस दौरान वे कुछ महीने इस कुटीर में रहे थे। उनकी सत्यनिष्ठा देखकर गांधीजी ने उन्हें प्रथम सत्याग्रही का सम्मान दिया था।
रोमा रोला की एक पुस्तक पढ़कर हमेशा के लिए गांधीजी की शिष्या बनने वाली अंग्रेज महिला कुमारी मेडेलीन स्लेड भी १९२५ से १९३३ तक यहाँ रहीं कुमारी स्लेड की तपश्चर्या की वजह से गांधीजी ने उन्हें मारा नाम दिया था।

One hut, two names
Drawn to the ashram by Gandhiji’s ideology. Vinoba Bhave lived here from 1918 to 1921. He stayed in this hut for a few months during this period. Vinoba’s total commitment to truth led Gandhiji to hail him as the model satyagrahi.
Madeleine Slade, a young English woman. learnt of Gandhiji’s Ideology from Romain Rolland’s book. As Gandhiji’s disciple she lived in this hut between 1925 and 1933 Gandhiji named her Mira because of her great devotion.
