A spiritually oriented service organization, Nachiketa Tapovan, formed in 1999, is the fruit of an inner calling of Pujya Swami Nachiketananda Puri. The teachings of great souls like Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa , Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekanada and many other masters have been the inspiration and drive behind Nachiketa Tapovan.

As Mahatma Gandhi said : " The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others". Apart from helping the economically downtrodden by providing free quality education and health care, the main aim is also to serve by spreading spiritual values amongst the society and thus help lighten, brighten and enlighten their lives.

Swami Nachiketananda's motto is :
"Work silently,
For those who are silent from ages together...
Be simple and humble,
While showing them the divine path...
Be sincere and dedicated,
While making them stand on their own feet...
That is the way to serve...
That is the way to get blessed...
That is the way to express divinity."
