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…

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

work and merit

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…

Compensatory Satisfaction

 
 

 
 

Another Layer of an Illusory Reality

 

 

The mirror creates its image
Within the reflection
Of a mirror created within the mirror

Another world to keep us away from ourselves
From our own Home, a reality without reflections…

Music in the heart

 

 

Music touches the string
Of all hearts listening
Makes bodies tremble
Pouring out emotions

Invisible hands reach each other
Get together,feel together
A flow of dancing sound
Beyond borders, differences

Language of music
Sound of Light
Shining on people
Connecting blood

Rhythm of Oneness
Without words
Spectrum of feelings
Expressed in tears

Man is man
Not divided in tones, notes
Nor in colours or shapes
He is One – in Sound and music

Balance in the Middle

 

 

Man is his own tightrope walker
He balances between good and evil
Between advantage and disadvantage

In finding his center
He won’t fall
In the abysses of both ends…

Lack of Determination

 

 

Whoever has his chair between two camps
Will neither know the one place
Nor the other one properly

He sits on the chair of indecision
Is neither here nor there at home…

DidiArtist, 25.05.2020

 
 

Decision taken

 

 

A convinced person is bound
To his own conviction
Is rather choiceless

It may be good, it may be bad
However, often he is unable to listen…

Quote: “Love beautifies” – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

Love beautifies everything
and if we learn to love everyone,
all our imperfections can be washed away,
especially by loving kind words.

Sant Kirpal Singh (Book excerpt from: Spiritual Elexir)

 

Who is good?

 

 

Good is he
Who is only of some use
To others?

Behind judging there is always a motive…
Selfish evaluation…

Love for All

 

 

I am not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Or Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist in particular
Nor do I represent any other religion
Isolated from the others
To separate me from other people
I am unity, belonging to the whole
The boat we all sit in
I am a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist
And other creeds at the same time
For we are all children
Of the One God
And not split into this and that
We are all this boat in Him

So let us remain in our respective religion
Become a true Christian, a true Moslem, a true Hindu
A true Buddhist, a true Sikh, a true Taoist, etc.
In other words: to become a true man
To rise above separation, dogmatism, fanatism
And live in Oneness and Unity with the One
Then all fights will cease and vanish
Love and respect will increase
And right understanding will grow
Among all people and peoples
To understand we are all One in Him

True love is to love His whole creation
Is service to man, service to God
Helping each other…

Because He is undivided love –
How can we separate this love into fragments…
Even our sun gives sunshine to everyone…

Sant Kirpal Singh’s Mission – Unity of Man

My dear friends,

I would like to share with you this video about Sant Kirpal Singh’s Mission.

How beautiful would our world be if we understand that we are all one, sitting in the same boat and that all problems can be overcome just by pure love and right understanding  (the love of the heart, not of the mind).

Let us put our hands and hearts together to bring a real change in the world.

Thank you, dear friends 🙂

May you all be blessed by God
Didi
