Social activities in Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

Today I would like to give some information about social activities in Kirpal Sagar.

Selfless help for needy and ill people are a way of keeping distance to one’s own ego,
if there is no self-pride involved in it.

From heart to heart
Didi

Kirpal Charitable Hospital

Sant Kirpal Singh whole-heartedly wished to provide help to those people who cannot afford medical care. Thus the hospital became the first facility within the Project taking up its function in 1983.

Various treatments are applied, such as allopathic, homeopathic, and ayurvedic therapies.

Poor people receive free medical treatment and medicine at the hospital. Presently the majority of the patients are treated as outpatients.

The accomplishment of the hospital up to 50 beds with departments of general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, dialysis center and surgery is under construction.

Furthermore, ambulances reach out to remote villages at central gathering points, such as schools, to provide medical care for people who otherwise would not have a chance to see a doctor. From time to time external eye specialists come to Kirpal Sagar to perform eye operations.

A dentist’s practice at the hospital provides dental care for the people of the neighbouring area and also for the students of the Kirpal Sagar Academy.

Students of the future Medical College will perform their practical training within the hospital. An international student exchange is also planned.

Medical Care

From the very beginning of the Kirpal Sagar project, humanitarian help has been provided to the people of the surroundings. Due to the weak infrastructure of this rural area it is very difficult to get medical treatment, especially for the needy.

Medical camps provided help for patients from the near by villages before the “Kirpal Charitable Hospital” eventually took up its function in 1983 as the first facility within the Project.

Meanwhile a large Hospital complex was constructed with departments of general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, dialysis centre and surgery.

Disadvantaged people obtain free distribution of medicine and medical care irrespective of caste, colour and creed.

Many volunteers from different countries support the project and some medicine firms in Germany and Switzerland are donating medicines.

 

Wheel-chairs for disabled people

Selfless service

To serve the poor and the needy is the true selfless service. If you give food to the hungry, you will never feel hungry. If you give water to the thirsty, you will never feel thirsty. How true is the prayer of the meek and unwanted and accursed is the life of him who ignores, and how great and broat-hearted is the one who works selflessly and gives head and heart to overcome the miseries of others. By holding on the treasures of virtues he becomes actionless. So long as one knows not the miseries of others, he knows not the very secret to overcome his own miseries. Wise persons tell us that it is vain to ask for pleasures and shun from pains. More one does, more one feels happy. This is what Sant Kirpal Singh ever felt.

Help for Self-Help
Job-training

At Surajpur a stitching and sewing school was opened in April 2005, there sewing and needle work courses are offered to enable women to earn their own living. Also, a training for nurses is planned for the future.

Untrained workers can undergo a job-training in the workshops at Kirpal Sagar, which also provide jobs for people with disabilities.

Women empowerment

Since the year 2008 seminaries for women empowerment are organized by the B.ed.College at Kirpal Sagar.

 

Marriages arranged in Kirpal Sagar for needy and poor people

Marriages

In the Indian culture, marriage plays an important role but wedding ceremonies are very expensive. Consequently, Unity of Man helps poor families by arranging the wedding and the furnishings for the couples to give them a good start in their family life. The marriage ceremonies are celebrated according to the religious belief of the couples. The newly married couples receive basic equipments needed for a new household: a fully equipped bedroom, furniture for a living-room, kitchen utensils as well as clothes and watches, everything sponsored by Unity of Man.

Disaster relief

Further help is supplied in case of disasters. During the big flood in 2010, two truckloads with emergency supplies were sent to the city of Leh, Ladakh.

Since Kirpal Sagar has its own water supply, big water tanks are put up in neighbouring towns during a big drought, to supply people passing by with drinking water.

The size and variety of the now existing facilities enable to react flexibly in emergency situations. In the home for the elderly for example orphaned children could be accommodated together with their grandfather.

No one can be said to have been born for himself alone, for none can be an island unto himself. To serve the needy, sick and starving, is also a sideline, more effective than mere preaching.

Message of goodwill


 

 

Usually we have good thoughts for our dear ones
Let us widen our horzont
To give room for the whole world
For good thoughts, words and deeds to everyone

A message that should go
From heart to heart
Torchbearer of light
To bring love in every house

No more violent thoughts
No more harsh words
But kindness and love
Respect and goodwill

Or do we want to be a mirror
Of our bad thoughts?…

Courage and strength


 

 

My dear friends all over the world
Life is a roller-coaster
We smile and are happy in good times
And we mourn and cry in bad times

When misfortune knocks at our door
Lets remember to be a beacon
For all lost ships in darkness
In doing so we overcome our own pain

Service and help are the features of light
To give and share unconditionally
To fight poverty and desparation
To bring people on their feet again

Words of hope can encourage
Deeds may reach lost hearts
Enlight their sad fate
To regain forgotten smiles

Let us put our heads and hearts together
Our hands in mutual service and help
To bring courage and strength
To those who suffer

Noone is foreign to us
We are all brothers and sister in Him
We all are one family – human beings…

Dream within the light


 

 

Virtual world slips in me
A body of three dimension
Travels through this world
Dream of reality

Equipped with senses
A world of holographies
Artificial intelligence
Programmed touches

Same recognizes same
Interactive communications
Receiver and sender
Information in exchange

I feel this dream as real
Touch it with fingers
Watch it with eyes
Listen its magic sounds

Taste information on the tongue of my being
Feeling a mixture of light and shadow
Weaving my dream I live in
As living pieces of a puzzle

This world is just a dream
Time to wake up
To see that I am light
To pass this drunken night

Food for the soul


 

Soul recipe

Faith in God,
Harmony and light
Love and no fight
Respect – a lot
Share and care
To be always fair

Language of the heart
Never be apart
Compassion spiced
Spreading like Christ
Scent of unity
Within community

Egofree life
Without selfish styles
Self-made strife
But heartful smiles
Odour of pure heart
Inner food, divine art

Appeal to all adults


 
 


 

Hello, adults all over the world
Adopt the attitude of the children
They have no borders to each other
No skin-colour that separates them

They do not threaten themselves
To kill each other
They speak and play in tune with their heart
Never get apart

Hello, adults all over the world
Children are our future, our love
Not our destruction, but our hope
Living innocence, colour of nativeness

Children know only one language:
The language of the heart
Understanding among each other
Originality lost in grown-ups

Hello, adults all over the world
Burry your weapons and be like a child
Put your heads and hearts together
To save the human race from perishing

We all are sitting in the same school
We have much to learn from our children…
