Shri Sadguru Seva Sangh Trust (SSSST)
Service to Humanity’ – with this ardent vision and
self-devotion, the foundation of Shri Sadguru Seva Sangh Trust (SSSST) was laid
in the early 1950s and formalized in 1968 by the revered saint Param Pujya Shri
Ranchhoddasji Maharaj (respectably addressed as “Gurudev” by his disciples).
Once, while doing sadhu-seva in Chitrakoot, Gurudev
encountered an elderly blind man who tripped on a stone hitting an electric
pole. Gurudev saw the blood oozing from his forehead and ran to help him when he
realized that the man was suffering from cataract. Being from one of the rural
and backward place, he was destined to live with a blindness that was curable.
Gurudev was intensely touched by this incident and vowed to rescue them from a
life of gloom.
To further his spiritual convictions, Gurudev along with his
followers spearheaded the movement of voluntary service in the early 1950s by
organizing free eye camps and large scale relief work for the grief stricken
families during the natural calamities in Central India. These efforts gradually
converged into establishing a formal institution “Shri Sadguru Seva Sangh Trust”
(SSSST) in 1968 at Chitrakoot, Madhya Pradesh.
Being an ardent devotee of Gurudev, the reins of SSSST were
entrusted to Shri Arvindbhai N. Mafatlal , a leading industrialist and a well
known philanthropist in India, and was nominated as the Chairman of the Trust by
Gurudev with a vision of providing ‘Food for the Hungry’, `Clothes for the
Destitute’ and `Sight for the Blind’. Since then Shri Arvindbhai N. Mafatlal
continued to be the visionary of SSSST and has been instrumental in the
sustained and diversified growth that the Trust has so far achieved.
