Through the Divine Inspiration and Blessings of Shri Haidakhan Babaji and his teachings of a life based on truth, simplicity & love and service to humanity, the duty to help the poor and needy. Shri Babaji placed an extremely strong emphasis on Karma Yoga. A natural outcome of the emphasis on karma yoga was Babaji’s forceful and potent philosophy of social welfare. Man had to serve man to raise his physical and intellectual levels. Slowly, Baba began to disseminate the importance of caring for man’s mental and physical well being if he was to grow spiritually, and narrowed in, as a start, on the populace of the Kumaon region – a region so dear to him.
It was in Chilianaula, [Below the hill station of Ranikhet] that Babaji began to envision and talk with a few select devotees about the need to begin a small charitable medical unit to serve the poor and the impoverished from the local and surrounding areas. Moved by the low socio-economic conditions of the Kumaon people, Babaji wanted to build and establish a comprehensive health care centre for them. This concept of charity began to take material shape soon after Babaji departed his mortal body in early 1984.
Babaji had stressed, “…Find your duties in this world and perform them with love, dedicating everything to God. Karma yoga — selfless service to mankind — is the highest form of worship in these troubled times. It helps to purify and protect mankind.”
