He is an intense patriot, wanting to reform society inside out with his prayers, counsels and sacrifices. He has been holding such important Yagyas all over Nepal, maintaining Gurukulums, Ved Vidyas-hrams, Medical Service Centers, including for the first time in Nepal, a Kanya Gurukulum.
He regularly conducts Dhanyachals, Mahasaptas, Vedic Summits, Sant Sammelans, Pancha Laxmi Poojans and such acts of social and religious benefit.
