We call this a "Mindset" rather than a social visit as we leverage Swamiji's visits in town to steal his "Mindset" and impart it to the needy and greedy ! Whenever Swamiji is in town for his programmes, he is happy to spare his time for short visits to different Schools, Colleges, Clubs, Institutions and factories to interact with people so that they can avail valuable advice for the betterment of their life.
Kalwan town of Nashik district has a very special importance in Swamiji and Mataji's spiritual life. In fact, they have stared their Yoga shivir activities in magnified way from this place. People of Kalwan are very much supportive and in real love with them.

Established in 1993 the Savitri Jotirao College of Social Work ( B. S. W.) is conducting an undergraduate course in Social work ( B. S. W.) Despite acute financial stress and struggle of almost 14 years (till 2006) , this Rural Institute could achieve ‘A’ grade inspite of all odds. Besides turning out bright BSW graduates the Institute, in the last 20 years, could concentrate on the following areas-
Cost effective Watershed Development Programme in the fields. Institute with the help of students has constructed field bunds on nearly 1500 Ha. of land in the last 20 years.
Money lenders issue in the Maharashtra state. Follow-up for the amendments in the bill -it is at the Maharashtra state legislative level.
Disaster Management in the National Calamities, during Gujarat earth quake, Tsunami and Bihar Flood Relief
The Institute at present is in a position to provide almost 100% job placement to its students. It is important to note that the students are mostly from the rural and tribal back ground. However their hardship with the strong and moral support from the dedicated faculty helps them in building a better professional.
It is important to note that the visionary efforts of the Vice President , Prof Dr. Ramakant Kolte has led to good team building spirit and the construction of the new campus building on the six acres of land of the outskirts of the township is in progress.
Swami Yogachittamji is known for his immense contribution for popularizing ‘Yoga’ , the art of meditation in the masses. It was during 2010, Swamiji with the help of local organizers had conducted a 11 days Yoga classes at Yavatmal. Some of the faculty members and the senior citizens of our Yoga classes promoted by the social work institute attended SwamijisYog Sanskar Shivir.
Realizing its importance the then Principal Mr. Avinash V. Shirke called on Hon. Swamiji at the old college campus. This could benefit our 7 year old Yoga classes and the students. Since then, popularly known TTK! (Tadasana, Triyak Tadasana and Katichakrasan) has become a regular practice of the Yoga class. Now the said warm up exercise has become a regular practice for the students too! The students , prior to regular prayer use to assemble voluntarily for this10 minutes’ Yoga Practice. The students have reported good improvement in their dilatory habits and good attention span.
In the last 3 years the Institute is frequently visited by Hon. Swamiji and London based neurosurgeon Dr. Prajayji Chaudhary, who is a true follower of Swamiji.
The Institute expresses its immense pleasure in extending their support to help the sons of the soils. Dr. Prajayji and Swamiji recently paid a visit to the institute and expressed their willingness to generously donate for the hostel building. Both dignitaries are, incidentally, from Vidarbha
More over, the motivation from both of them and their desire to help for the better cause is more important as the Vidarbha is badly in need of getting a moral support from such inspired individuals.
