Manav Seva” at Divya Jivan
Sanskrutik Sangh, Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad.
Project Manav Seva is an extensive program guided by Sri Swami Adhyatmananda Saraswati that focuses on holistically helping the needy and indigent populations. Swamiji is a spiritual master whose heart bleeds for human suffering; this led him to provide the guidance required for such a noble undertaking. Under his guidance, programs specifically geared towards helping the needy and disabled have grown and flourished successfully. Project Manav Seva has been carried out by the Bhagwan shri Vishwanath Mahadev Seva Kendra, Sivanand Ashram for the last nine years and continues to grow by leaps and bounds in the advancement of current programs which address the alleviation of suffering of the sick, disabled, elderly, blind and deaf. The ultimate goal of this program is to further spiritual growth for both those served and those providing service while simultaneously making a difference in people’s lives. The continuation of such comprehensive programs has been possible only because of the unstinted devotion and generous financial help provided by selfless devotees of the Lord all over.
