It conducts spiritual discourses, classes on Vedanta, Bhagavad Geeta and other scriptures. The Centre also organizes workshops for practical application of spiritual knowledge for large numbers of participants.
Welfare activities in the form of classes for underprivileged children and Daana Satra – distribution of rice and clothing to the needy—are regularly held.
