The Athurasramam Homoeo  college which swamiji had started about 10 decades back is the first of its kinds in Kerala and a pioneer among the Homoeo colleges in the rest of the country.

Far before launching Homoeo college at Kurichi , swamiji had contacts with   famous homoeo physicians in Calcutta, Swamiji gained much valuable information in this regard from them.  In 1960 swamiji got an invitation to participate in the world homoeopathic meet held at Germany.  This facilitated swamiji to held discussion with homoeo doctors of international repute.    Besides swamiji got an opportunity to see and understand the working of some homoeopathic centers of global repute in England, Scotland, France, and Germany. Swamiji got a chance, when he visited Germany, to visit the homoeopathic hospital founded by Dr. Hahneman who is regarded as the father of homoeopathy, and to go through some of his famous works in homoeopathy and his manuscripts related to homoeopathy.

In 1957 Athurasramam homoeo college was started functioning at Sachivothamapuram in Kottayam District.  Later in 1962 close to the homoeo college  swamiji had commenced a Homoeopathic research centre -- a premier among the similar instititution in the country.

In addition to this about 40 years back His Holiness had started a mental research centre.   The credit of being the sole mental research centre in Homoeopathic sector in entire Asia goes to this prestigious institution in Kurichy.


A new venture in homoeo research, known as Centre Council   for Research in Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy (CCRIMH) is coming up just to the northern side of this research centre. A new building to house this new centre is being constructed there and it is nearing completion.  This is an institution
owned by Central Government.  All these institutions came into being only because of the specific views of swamiji and his ardent will for selfless service to mankind.


For the development of homoeopathic institution fostered by swamiji , together with Dr.R.P.Patel ,the then principal of the Homoeo college , he had conducted studies on the progress in the field of homoeopathic medical service in the   European countries. This was in the early years of 1960.  Swamiji took part in the 24th Global homoeo meet held at Geneva.  In that global meet swamiji delivered a series of lectures on the topic,” the message of homoeopathy to the have-nots”. The all India Homoeo conference held at Kurichy Athurasramam Homoeo college was a noteworthy  event .
In 1978 swamiji had handed over the Homoeo medical college , the hostels and other buildings related to it to the Nair Service Society. A long cherished wish of swamij  was fulfilled when a degree course in homoeopathy had started here in 1993.

Until since the commencement of the Homoeo  college, about 15000 doctors were passed out.  Many of them are serving in central Government institution, some of them are practicing homoeo medicine , some others had become homoeo college principals , homoeo medical officers in state government homoeo establishments and some are practicing abroad..


Under the guidance of swamiji , charitable homoeo dispensaries are functioning in Malampuzha(Palakkad) Kurattimala (Kottayam) and Bhakthanandapuram (Eranakulam) .  Here patients are getting medicine free of cost.

Swamiji had established 19 workingwomen’s hostel in Kerala and Tamilnadu to cater to the accommodation needs of working women whose number is fast increasing day by day. Athuraseva sanghom tops in the number,in case  of working women’s hostels, run by single management. In these hostel’s women are safe and enjoy a homely feeling. These institutions play a conspicuous role in National integration as well as in the matter of social security project for women.  Women from different religion, cast, creed, and walks of life live here as a family.  Thus, it helps to develop a sort of integral feeling among women.

In the field of working women’s hostel Athura seva sangham has a commendable position. Swamiji’s services in this field was subjected to a special reference in the Parliament of India.  Swamiji had been selected as a special invitee to the Central Social Welfare advisory board .
In addition to working women’s hostels, nursery schools, day-care and play- schools have also been started.
