Nihar Charitable Trust
Established in 1994. For several years, many patients have availed naturopathy treatment free of cost.Initially started at Bakarsha’s Wadi at Pirana, Ahmedabad. Then at Swaminarayan Mandir, Ahmedabad. Here also a large number of patients took naturopathy consultations and treatment.
In 1994 itself, at Sabarmati Jail, Ahmedabad, imparted Habits, Diet & Yoga training in an innovative and easy way to a batch of forty prisoners for three months while they were serving life sentence. In 2000, a centre for free naturopathy treatment was run at Preksha Vishwa Bharati Kendra (a Jain institution) for some time where a large number of patients had benefited. From July 2011 to December 2011, several villages in Kapadwanj Taluka were provided free treatment through Nihar Charitable Trust.
Be it Nihar Arogya Mandir or Nihar Charitable Trust, non affording patients have always received free treatment (or have paid a lower fee) and this shall continue in future also. For first two years, the treatment was provided almost at free of cost level. But free treatment has its dangers. It is die-hard human nature that free services are never taken seriously and some people even make fun of it. So,some practical re-packaging was called for. As the human nature is, the new packaging was accepted quickly and seems to work far better. Several booklets published by Nihar have been freely distributed (rather than being sold) and this has made it possible for the booklets and ANUPAN to reach more than 5,00,000 Gujarati readers. For past few years, every day morning for ten minutes , about 30,00,000 TV viewers in Gujarat, tune in to GTPL Movie Channel and are able to benefit from the naturopathy talks by Mukesh Patel
Nihar Arogya Mandir has a mission : To scientifically treat the patients without medicines by naturopathy and cure them quickly and in way that helps them remain healthy thereafter.This therapy is as old as our human body. If some one feels that human body is too ancient and needs to be scrapped, he alone would venture to oppose Naturopathy.Any soul that resides in and respects the human body – the greatest gift that one can receive – he must have knowingly or unknowingly resorted to naturopathy sometime or another in his life time – and benefited.Our body is formed by five natural elements and is going to dissolve again into them when our soul departs from it. It is our responsibility to return this body to Mother Nature in as good a condition as we received it at birth. Exactly like when we use and return some body’s borrowed car or two-wheeler. Same way, please look after this great human body responsibly, even for your own selfish interest, and pray to the God or Mother Nature when you breath last: "Thank You Almighty. Here is the gift you kindly gave me. I am returning it nearly in tact”
Live in harmony with Mother Nature. Live lightly. Do not carry yourself heavily. Live without much of calculations and scheming. Live with the science of Mother Nature. Live just for today. Every night, sleep as though you are no more. Every morning, wake up as a newly born person.
