Our Philosophy
Mauli Seva Pratishthan began as a direct and heartfelt response to the visible gaps in care and attention for wandering men and women with mental illness. They simply did not 'exist 'in the eye of society and there were no services to help them recover their lost lives.
The philosophy is to help these destitute to find their own path to fulfillment.
We follow all views and thoughts given by Hindu, Christian, Buddha and Muslim Philosophy regarding Hunger, Poverty and Compassion.
Mauli Seva Pratishthan is a registered NGO, working in rural triable area since 1998.
View of Swami Vivekananda
  • Love Is The Law of Life : All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore, love for love's sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live.
  • It's Your Outlook That Matters : It is our own mental attitude, which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light.
  • Life is Beautiful : First, believe in this world - that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, think that you do not understand it in the right light. Throw the burden on yourselves!
  • It's The Way You Feel : Feel like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha. It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality, without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God.
  • Set Yourself Free : The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
  • Don't Play The Blame Game : Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.
  • Help Others : If money helps a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.
  • Uphold Your Ideals : Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
  • Listen To Your Soul : You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
  • Be Yourself : The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves!
  • Nothing Is Impossible : Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin - to say that you are weak, or others are weak.
  • You Have The Power : All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
  • Learn Everyday : The goal of mankind is knowledge... now this knowledge is inherent in man. No knowledge comes from outside: it is all inside. What we say a man 'knows', should, in strict psychological language, be what he 'discovers' or 'unveils'; what man 'learns' is really what he discovers by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.
  • Be Truthful : Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.
  • Think Different : All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.
Vivekananda said
So long as millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every person a traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them.
Let each one of us pray day and night for the downtrodden millions who are held fast by poverty, priest craft, and tyranny. Pray day and night for them. I care more to preach religion to them than to the high and the rich.
View of Buddhism
According to Buddhism poverty is bad because it involves dukkha. The Pali term dukkha is arguably the most fundamental concept of Buddhism, yet it isoften misunderstood. The usual English translations are "suffering, frustration, dissatisfaction", but "ill-being" is perhaps the best in this context. The point of the Buddhist path is to end our dukkha, and that does not involve making any significant distinction between worldly dukkha and some other transcendental sort. As a philosophy and way of life which advocates eliminating dukkha, Buddhism does not and cannot value poverty that is a source of duhkha. In the Anguttara Nikaya, for example, the Buddha says that for a person who enjoys sense-pleasures poverty (Pali, daliddiya) is miserable, because it leads to borrowing and increasing debts and thus ever-increasing suffering.
Buddhism does value nonattachment towards material goods, and promotes the virtue of having less wants, yet that is not the same as encouraging poverty. Poverty, as ordinarily understood in early Buddhism, consists in lacking the basic material requirements for leading a decent life free from hunger, exposure and disease. Buddhism recognizes the importance of such minimum material needs even in the case of those who aspire to its spiritual goal, and in fact the basic needs of a monk or nun provide a useful benchmark for measuring that level of subsistence below which human beings should not be allowed to fall. The four requisites of a Buddhist renunciate are food sufficient to alleviate hunger and maintain one's health, clothing sufficient to be socially decent and to protect the body, shelter sufficient for serious engagement with cultivating the mind, and health care sufficient to cure and prevent disease. Buddhism considers people who voluntarily renounce worldly possessions and pleasures in favor of a life of such minimal needs as belonging to the community of "noble ones" (ariyapuggala).
View of Lord Jesus
According to Halley's Bible Handbook, this is one of the most magnificent passages in the Bible, it portrays to us how an act of common kindness will affect our standing in the eternal world.(Halley, 447) In light of the previous verses, it is hard to deny that a Christian must help those who are less fortunate. In reference to the passage above St. John of Chrysostomos is quoted as saying
"The master and creator of the universe says, 'I was hungry and you gave me no food'. What heart is so hard that it is not moved by these words? Your Lord is out there, dying of hunger, and you give yourself up to gluttony." (Santa Ana, 22)

"Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms, and looks which are
Weapons of an unvanquished war."

"Shake your chains to earth, like dew
Which in sleep hath fallen on you."

"Peoples earth with demons, hell with men,
And heaven with slaves."

"Hell, a red gulf of everlasting fire,
Where poisonous and undying worms prolong
Eternal misery to those hapless slaves
Whose life has been a penance for its crimes."

Islamic View
17:70. We have honoured the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favours, above a great part of our creation. 
Allah love the following rich people:
79:8. And they feed, for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,
76:9. (Saying),"We feed you for the sake of Allah alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.
14-31. Speak to my servants who have believed, that they may establish regular prayers, and spend (in charity) out of the sustenance we have given them, secretly and openly, before the coming of a Day in which there will be neither mutual bargaining nor befriending.
Roadside Homeless ,family less wondering mentally ill persons are our brothers and sisters .As all religions believe that we all are son and daughters of that Creator of Universe.
How we can see that our brothers and sisters are in distress, and we are only praying God ?
Where is he?
He is in each and every particle of this universe.
Then this is our duty to pray ,not by going in to Mandir,
Majjid or Church.
He is wondering on roads ,watching us ,watching our capacity of compassion.
Because he only taught us compassion.
Pray the God he is wondering on Roads wearing a mask of Poor, hungry and mentally ill.
 
This is the unique project of its kind. As we know mentally ill person are heading towards darkness. No hopes, no support. Their life is lonely and miserable.
