In 1998 construction of Swami’s second Ashram ‘Chaithanya Puri’ began at Nayattupara in Kovoor, some 30 km east of Kannur. As well as building a temple to Lord Krishna and a beautiful garden, work was begun on a hospital at the new site. The suffering of mothers with their young children had stayed in Swami’s mind since his own childhood and he used to pray to Lord Shiva that he might one day be able to relieve the suffering of everyone through the provision of free medicine. The hospital currently functions as a free homeopathic centre and dispensary for local people who come daily to receive treatment. It is run by Swami and his dedicated staff. This work is supported entirely from donations from Swami’s friends and devotees, as well as from some of the patients.
The building of a large spiritual centre with a meditation hall, temple, and 36 rooms for visiting devotees began in 2002 at Chaithanya Puri Ashram and is now complete. Swami has further plans to build a large dining hall and an old people’s home, the overall vision being to provide relief to the poor and vulnerable in the community. The dining hall will offer good, simple food free of charge to all who come and the home will provide shelter for the elderly and destitute. There are also plans to build a Naturopathic teaching hospital and a centre for Vedic Learning, Yoga and Vedanta to promote the dissemination of spiritual knowledge.
