About Swami Debananda Mission
Swami Debananda Mission is the charitable wing of Swami Debananda Ashram, that like the latter, comes under the administrative control of Swami Debananda Mission Trust. Satguru Swami Debananda Maharaj says spiritual evolution is the aim of human life, and spiritual evolvement entails development of essentially humane qualities of love, generosity, respect and renunciation. Engagement in unselfish service is essential for overcoming narrow-mindedness and going beyond the mean calculations of personal profit and loss. Service to humanity has always been a way of life of Satguru Swami Debananda Maharaj whose universal love is well-known to all. Swami Debananda Mission, founded on the Master’s ideal of selfless service and love for all humanity, serves to alleviate the sufferings of the underprivileged section of the society.
The monks and lay devotees working on behalf of the Mission treat the people they serve as Narayana or the incarnation of God. Guided by the teachings of His Holiness, the workers serve with deep reverence and utmost selflessness. The projects run by the Mission in the field of education include schools, hostel, library, computer-centre, Swami Debananda Academy, and providing financial aid to bright but underprivileged students. Projects in the field of health include running charitable dispensaries, eye screening and operation camps, ambulance service, monetary aid for the treatment of financially challenged patients, blood donation camps, distribution of blood cards etc. Other projects of the Mission are the running of Old-age Homes, delivery of meals at the doorsteps of the invalid and the indigent, distribution of clothes and wheelchairs, and organising awareness camps.
