Jagadguru Kripalu Yog Trust
The Jagadguru Kripalu Yog Trust, popularly known as JKYog India, was founded by Swami Mukundananda for the spiritual, physical, material, and intellectual upliftment of humankind. The Trust is a part of the worldwide mission of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.
Since its inception, JKYog India has been successfully conducting yoga-meditation camps and spiritual workshops throughout the country, to help individuals and communities lead better lives through holistic health and spiritual wellbeing. The Trust has inspired the establishment of several sister organizations for the development of local regions in towns and villages of Odisha, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Delhi. These include: Radha Govind Dham, Delhi, Radha Govind Dham, Cuttack, Radha Govind Dham, Brahmapur, Radha Govind Dham, Jajpur, Radha Govind Dham, Parlakhemundi and Radha Govind Dham, Karanjia.
Jagadguru Kripalu Chikitsalay (JKC), Banara, is a charitable allopathy hospital that has been fulfilling the medical needs of about 10,000 villagers since May 04, 2013. It is equipped with a modern pathology lab, minor OT, Siemens X-Ray machine and advanced eye testing facility. The specialist doctors, including orthopaedist, gynaecologist, paediatrician, ophthalmologist, internal medicine specialist, etc, at the hospital treat about 100 patients free of cost on a daily basis. Ambulance services are also available for emergencies to transport the patients to super specialty hospitals in the city.
The Jagadguru Kripalu Yoga and Naturopathy Hospital is one of the most modern naturopathy setups in Eastern India. It aims to combine the ancient science of healing with the state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to offer a high standard of treatment at affordable cost. It is also a source of employment for the locals.
Donation of necessities to the underprivileged are regularly undertaken where books and other items are distributed to children; food and other basic amenities are provided to the widows, old, visually impaired and differently abled people. JKYog India also supports the charitable welfare projects of JKP India. Thousands of needy benefit from these programs every year.
Age old customs and traditions of the community are what keep it alive in this fast-changing world. JKYog India has strived to safeguard the local traditions and functions of the nearby villages by renovating their place of worships, supporting yatras and encouraging festival celebrations. This has helped the villagers maintain their rich cultural heritage in a rapidly changing world.
Along with social security, the youth of the nation need employment to attain financial security. JKYog India supports various nearby schools to improve literacy in the region. Additionally, the Trust has already created infrastructure to open a skill centre at the Jagadguru Kripalu University that will equip the village youth with the required skillset for employment. This will attract more students towards education and improve the literacy rate and financial status of the nearby villages.
