Annadaan (Charitable Donation of Food)

Babaji always insists that Annadaan is the greatest seva (selfless service) of all, and that it should be conducted with dedication and compassion. About 2000 families benefit from Babaji’s generous distribution of groceries, conducted in various rural areas of Palakkad and Kozhikode around 5 times in a year. Babaji encourages devotees to
conduct similar programs in their respective societies, to create balance and harmony, in addition to serving the needy.

Gau (Cow) Seva

Kamadhenu or the Divine Cow is the
creator and sustainer of life, the divine being created to provide health and prosperity to humanity. Babaji’s Gau Seva projects aim at protection of Cows and donation of Cows to the needy, such that they can not only make a living but also protect the Cows. Babaji’s Sharavana Gokulam Gohshala provides shelter and care for the rarest breeds of Cows, with plans to scale the infrastructure to accommodate hundreds more, and to replicate
the same in all the ashrams/centres all over the world.

Arogya Seva – (Healthcare)

Babaji’s words of wisdom – healthy mind, healthy body, thereby a healthy and harmonious society, have initiated the Arogya Seva project that provides healthcare through medical outreach programs and donations to people in dire conditions to foot their medical bills. Every year around 200 families benefit from medical welfare programs conducted five times in a year. A visit to a remote tribal area received an overwhelming response from the locals – more than 10,000 people came to take the aid provided to them. Thus the Trust has taken this response as a source of inspiration to develop further similar rural development programs.

Vidyadaan (Educational Material Distribution)

The Trust regularly supports education, which is the foundation of a meaningful life and a better society for tomorrow. Through many schools, the Trust has reached out to the needy and deserving students to provide them with the essentials for good education. At every charitable event, more than 10,000 notebooks, pens and pencils
are distributed for the benefit of these students. Other schools performing such noble work are also supported and encouraged so that the advantages of education can be extended to deserving children.

Vastradaan (Clothes Distribution)

Babaji says that modest clothing is one of the basic necessities of human life and that the individuals from the most under-privileged sections of the society are the ones who need it the most. Hence, many events have been organised so that the needy receive adequate clothing for all seasons. During the holy festivals, clothes are donated to the poor; thus they receive not only clothing but also love and attention. In this way the festival becomes a happy memory to the receiver and the giver!
