He is a fervent patriot who wishes to alter society from the inside out by his prayers, counsels, and sacrifices. He has held such significant Yagyas throughout Nepal, maintaining Gurukulums, Ved Vidyas-hrams, Medical Service Centers, and, for the first time in Nepal, a Kanya Gurukulum.

He organizes Dhanyachals, Mahasaptas, Vedic Summits, Sant Sammelans, Pancha Laxmi Poojans, and other acts of social and religious value on a regular basis.
