Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra (Regd.) is a non-profit charitable society that serves humanity. Our headquarters is situated in Nawan Nagar, Post Office Nanakpur, Tehsil Kalka, District Panchkula, Haryana, India. There are around 240 retreat centers, called manav kendras, all over India.
School for underprivileged students
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra owns and manages the educational institution, Kirpa Nidhan Public Senior Secondary School. The school is situated at VPO Thrike, Near New Chungi, Ferozepur Road, Ludhiana, Punjab. The school operates as a not-for-profit service. Students from underprivileged families pay nominal fees or no fees.
Donations to hospitals and medical camps
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra supports hospitals by donating ventilators, personal protective equipment, thermal detectors, multipara monitors, wheelchairs, medicine, and medical supplies. We also organize 12-15 medical camps per week and conduct blood donation camps under the guidance and supervision of hospitals and medical professionals.
Supporting students, orphans, sick, elderly
Throughout India, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra centers help students in need, by offering free financial help for their education, and we distribute free stationery items and textbooks. We regularly provide free food, shelter, clothing, blankets, and medical treatment to orphans, the elderly, poor, or sick. We also financially assist patients in hardship.
Service to humanity
Each Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra retreat center operates on a charitable basis, embodying service to humanity by offering free accommodation, food, and medical services, to people in need. We organize charitable social service programs that distribute basic amenities to families in low-income neighborhood areas.
Disaster relief programs
In response to natural calamities, our centers mobilize our volunteers to proactively respond and serve by preparing, packaging and distributing cooked food, rations and relief material to the sufferers. We also provide building material to help those who cannot afford to rebuild their homes.
Free well being programs
We offer free programs guided by unity in diversity, service to humanity, compassion for all, a natural lifestyle, and devotion to the omnipresent God pervading all. These are the cornerstones of Sant Baljit Singh’s teachings. Our Sunday programs include an inspirational discourse (satsang) to raise spiritual awareness.
Free devotional celebrations
We organize events during devotional festivals and other occasions as a free service to those who wish to come together to celebrate these festivals in grandeur, but may not be able to afford the associated costs. These events also offer free food, accommodation, and medical services, around the clock.
COVID-19 CHARITY PROJECTS
Actions that make a difference
When we serve humanity, we serve anyone and everyone.
Sant Baljit Singh
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra was moved by Sant Baljit Singh to undertake its Covid-19 relief efforts as soon as the World Health Organization declared the worldwide outbreak as a pandemic. Sant Baljit Singh emphasized that especially during crisis situations, it is pertinent to serve those in need, and that Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra should expand its charitable efforts. He said: “People need help. We have to go out there and help, and do it responsibly.”
Right away, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra proactively approached the local administration to offer our services. We used our local centers as approved facilities to cook and pack food packets, and organize the ration packets, for free distribution to people in need as requested by the local administration. Our volunteers worked alongside the local administration to distribute our donated cooked food and ration packets, and we collaborated with government hospitals to donate medical supplies. Additionally, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra facilities were offered and used as shelters.
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra started its Covid-19 charity relief efforts when India’s Covid-19 pandemic lockdown began in March 2020. Throughout the initial lockdown, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra rallied with zest and zeal to help people in need, and donate medical supplies to hospitals. When India lifted lockdown restrictions during the second half of 2020, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra continued to support hospitals with medical supplies.
During India’s second wave of the pandemic in 2021, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra ramped up support once again. During these unprecedented times, we have steadfastly continued our Covid-19 charity relief efforts.
Hospitals and local administration throughout India have emphatically recognized Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra’s Covid-19 relief efforts through letters of appreciation, and in-person visits to our facilities to inspect and acknowledge our relief projects.
When asked to help during Covid-19, our centers responded with donations of:
Ventilators, thermal detectors, multipara monitors, thousands of PPE kits, masks, hand sanitizers, surgical gloves, medical supplies and medicines
More than 2.5 lakhs (two hundred and fifty thousand) nutritious, fresh, and hygienically cooked food packets and tens of thousands of ration packets
N-95 and triple layer masks, hand sanitizers, gloves, soap, and sodium hypochlorite to safeguard police personnel during their Covid-19 field service
Mattresses, sheets, and pillows with covers donated to shelter homes, and our centers served as shelter homes managed by the local administration
DEVOTION TO THE OMNIPRESENT GOD PERVADING ALL
Life is like a festival, meant for rejoicing. Your supreme reality is that you are a soul. Eternal bliss is your truth. You are all-consciousness, an image of unending peace.
Sant Baljit Singh
The Navratri festival, usually held for nine days, celebrates Goddess Durga and her nine divine forms: Shailaputri Maa, Brahmacharini Maa, Chandraghanta Maa, Kushmanda Maa, Skandmata Maa, Katyayani Maa, Kalratri Maa, Mahagauri Maa, and Sidhidatri Maa. Each day of the festival is associated with one form of Goddess Durga. A sacred text—the Devi Mahatmya (The Glory of the Goddess)—explains the extraordinary virtues and greatness of each form and is read as a reminder about them.
The spring and autumn Navratri Festivals are celebrated each year at Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra, Nawan Nagar, India.
The auspicious month of Sawan or Shravan is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the supreme being. He has the role of protecting, transforming, creating, and recreating the material universe. In his highest form, Lord Shiva is timeless and absolute reality, without form or limits. He represents the primal soul, atman, and the value of meditation, devotion, and self-discipline.
In recognition of Lord Shiva at this time of year, millions of people (Kawariyas) traditionally go on religious pilgrimages, bathe in sacred rivers, and make resolutions to demonstrate their love and devotion for the Divine.
