With my medical background, I was posted in A.M. Gurukula University at Anandanagar by Baba. I was looking after Composite Medical College and Hospital from 1990 to 2003. Here in Nepal also I am continuing to treat the needy persons through Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Yoga and Herbal medicines. I am planning to expand these activities through medical camps. Last October we gave Asthma and Allergy treatments with herbs at midnight in moonlight. The follow up was Yoga and Music therapy with Prabhat Samgiita. 150 persons benefited. Now we are going to organize the same on June 7, 08. If we get someone specializing in acupuncture it will be even better.
