Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna once said to ‘Naren’ (Swami Vivekananda), “if you can see him (God) when you close your eyes, why can’t you see Him when you open your eyes?’ He always wanted Swamiji to serve the poor, the downtrodden, the ignorant, the sufferer and also the sinner. While he was travelling extensively from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, Swami Vivekananda was shocked to see the miserable condition of the people of India. He was touched by the ignominy of their existence. The inexplicable agony of the common people propelled him to preach the doctrine-‘Shiva Jnane Jiva Seva’. He earnestly wanted to do something for the deprived section of the society. Swami Vivekananda had a special message for the present modern age, “He, who serves Jiva; serves Shiva indeed.” The first health care facility provided to the locality by the Mission since its inception is the Homoeopathy dispensary. It expanded slowly to the districts of Bankura, Midnapore [W] and Bardhaman when the Pallimangal of the Mission started Eye Operation and Mobile Medical unit in 1980. Finally, all the systems of treatment like Allopathy, Ayurvedic and Homoeopathy started functioning under one roof when the Charitable Dispensary and Eye Day Care Centre was established in 2005 with the grant from the Govt. of India, MPLADS and Kirpalani Foundation.
