Gurukul is the Guru's abode, and a kid learning there achieves perfection. Keeping these sacred thoughts in mind and to educate the impoverished and destitute children, Narayan Gurukul was established by Narayan Seva Sansthan in Sewa Mahatirth Badi. According to Mr. Prashant Agarwal, President of the Sansthan, the goal of this Gurukul is to help these children lead a morally upright life, develop strong moral character and contribute to the advancement of society.
On October 21, 2022, in the midst of Vedic chants, the auspicious opening of Narayan Gurukul took place in the presence of Mr. Tarachand Ji Meena, the district collector for the Udaipur region, Preeti Singh Shaktawat, the Vallabhnagar MLA, Saloni Khemka, and Monika Jakhar, among other special guests. With this significant undertaking, we hope that these children serve as an example for the rest of the world and, like Gautam, Vivek, Rama, and Krishna, bring honor to their name and glory.
In India, Goddess Durga and her nine manifestations are worshipped during the Navratri festival. Small girls are fed and worshipped throughout this nine-day celebration as an act of devotion. Every year Narayan Seva Sansthan performs mass corrective surgeries on disadvantaged, and differently-abled girls during this auspicious occasion.
This year, we operated 501 little girls with disabilities from 26 September 2022 to 5 October 2022. A special food distribution drive was also conducted for underprivileged girls. Along with this, on the auspicious day of Durgashtami, Kanya Pujan Mahotsav was organized where all these innocent girls were worshiped as Goddess. Mr. Ram Lal Jat, Revenue Minister, Government of Rajasthan was present there as the chief guest and blessed the children. Such initiatives help transform the lives of little girls who cannot afford the surgery and give them wings to fulfill their dreams.
On 29 August 2022, in the 38th free Divyang and Poor marriage ceremony of Narayan Seva Sansthan, 50 couples took seven vows and got married happily at Seva Mahatirtha in Badi, amidst the recitation of Vedic mantras. Welcoming the guests, the Founder-Chairman Kailash Manav said that Divyang and poor brothers and sisters, who had never imagined getting married considering their disability and poverty as misfortune; today they are doing this with the help of the society. Most of these couples underwent free corrective surgery at the sansthan's hospital itself. The sansthan made the effort to organize this wedding in order to socially rehabilitate them and to help them get equal status in society. All the couples were presented with a sapling to plant outside the house and dustbins to maintain cleanliness.
On 11th September 2021, Narayan Seva Sansthan team organized a free-of-cost mass wedding ceremony for 21 specially-abled couples. All of these couples come from deprived backgrounds and cannot afford having a wedding. Our NGO made the effort to organize this wedding ceremony in order to socially rehabilitate them and to help them get equal status in society. This ceremony was held at Seva Mahatirth in Badi (Udaipur) in the gracious presence of Hon. Kailash Ji ‘Manav’ and our President ‘Sevak’ Prashant Ji Agarwal. The event was held by duly abiding with the Corona protection guidelines and our supporters extended their greetings & well-wishes from the comfort of their homes.
Rotary International offered a generous grant of 1.34 Crore to Narayan Seva Sansthan for building a new prosthetic and orthotics workshop. This workshop will be built in India for making artificial limbs for amputees. The prosthetic limbs built in the workshop will be distributed for free among the needy people in the remote areas in India.
Narayan Seva Sansthan is extremely thankful to Rotary International for this kind contribution, it will directly contribute to people in extreme need of help.
Yoga is the ultimate key to a healthy living and with this mindset we train the children of our school for a healthy future. World Yoga Day is celebrated for increased awareness of the health benefits of yoga. The children of our school were very happy to be a part of this fun yoga workout.
Specially abled children were also an integral part of this celebration and they bring with them such positive energy and were a constant source of zest on this occasion. Our Divya hero Jagdish also inspired the children by doing yoga on a wheelchair. His spirit throughout the yoga session inspired so many young children in living their best life following a healthy mindset.
