Service to Humanity Programs (pre Covid-19)
Each Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra retreat center operates on a charitable basis, embodying service to humanity by offering free food, accommodation, and medical services, to people in need. Our retreat centers also actively undertake charitable activities in the community through social service programs. With love and respect, we are dedicated to serving humanity.
Support for underprivileged students (pre Covid-19)
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra collaborates with schools to provide basic educational necessities. In 2019, we supported 307 schools in Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Chandigarh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, and Madhya Pradesh.
Basic amenities (pre Covid-19)
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra organizes charitable social service programs that distribute basic amenities to families in low-income neighborhood areas. These programs are inspired by the teachings of Sant Baljit Singh that motivate our volunteers to see and serve God in everyone.
Cleaning Campaigns (pre Covid-19)
Every year, five to six hundred thousand people from all over India come to Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh, to celebrate Mahashivratri on the bank of the Narmada River. After the event, local authorities request assistance to clean the river’s bank. Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra sends a team of about 150 of our volunteers from Madhya Pradesh to join the local authorities in this cleaning campaign.
We also participate in the government’s project to clean the Narmada River. Similarly, we also help in such cleaning campaigns in Punjab.
Free Well Being Programs (pre Covid-19)
On Sunday, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra centers offer free programs featuring inspirational discourses with meditation sessions. The local communities attend these programs from 9am to 10am from April to September, and from 10am to 11am from October to March.
These programs are guided by unity in diversity, service to humanity, compassion for all, a natural lifestyle, and devotion to God and creation. These are the cornerstones of Sant Baljit Singh’s teachings. Practising these cornerstone teachings can be helpful for one to achieve peace, improve one’s general well being, and foster a better mental and emotional balance. Sant Baljit Singh’s teachings are many fold, they are spiritual to guide the development of soul, and may help one overcome problems that confront humanity in today’s environment.
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra offers free lodging and wholesome vegetarian food to anyone who attends a retreat at our centers. Retreatants focus on the spiritual teachings alongside opportunities to participate in various charitable and service oriented activities, spend time in nature, and learn new skills such as wholesome vegetarian cooking, planting vegetables, landscaping, housekeeping, sewing, making savory snacks and sweets, and woodworking.
