women at the ashram:
Some of the elderly women who have no family, no house, no money, and no
other means of support stay at Siddha Ashram. Some are so old and of ill
health that they cannot do anything. Others, if able, may contribute to
cleaning and other such activities around the ashram. All of their needs
are provided by the ashram, including food, shelter, clothing and
people: Many other
people also have little or no resources, and live on the street. When
there money is there, Swamiji and the Ashram will purchase and
distribute blankets, clothes, sweaters and food.
Swamiji has many contacts in the medical community, including doctors
who are his student. He will arrange through these doctors free medical
treatment, as well as proving the money to purchase medicines and
related medical materials and supplies.
financial resources are there, sewing machines and other machines are
acquired so that the unemployed or unemployable may have a way to make
their own income.
jobs: Along with
these services, the Ashram also helps people and community business
people to work together to create and find jobs for those willing and
able to work.
for saints and sadhus:
Ujjain is a major spiritual center in India. As Siddha Ashram is
prominently located on the Shipra River in the heart of Ujjain, there
are many wandering monks and pilgrims, for whom food is regularly
provided by the Ashram.
