18th April – Saw a tender morning with a purpose, a day that saw inaugural ceremony of the Medical Camp at Akal Charitable Hospital at Baru Sahib.
A team of more than 90 specialists and doctors. The event took place at the entrance of Akal Charitable Hospital with Divine music and Ardaas. Baba Iqbal Singh Ji graced the occasion with his Divine presence at the venue. Dr Gautam has been the chief motivation behind this medical camp since the beginning. He addressed and welcomed the Medical team who has come from all corners of Punjab, Haryana and Delhi leaving behind their busy schedules to mark their contribution to society by being a part of this Free Medical Camp. To mark their Noble contributions, the whole medical team was awarded with a Robe of Honor – Saropa by Babaji.
Babaji addressed the gathering of doctors, para medicals, patients, students and onlookers. He emphasized on the need of eradicating the illness of mind through recitation of Divine name which would ultimately lead to a healthier mind and a healthier body. He stressed that everyone on earth is suffering from one ailment or other due to impressions of five vices of Lust, Anger, Greed, Attachment n Pride.
He emphasized that ultimate ease will come only with recitation of Divine name for healthy soul leading to a healthy body and a healthy life. What doctors are doing today is just treating bodily ailments.
Huge rush of patients then entered the Akal Charitable Hospital and the medical camp and surgeries officially started. Cardiologist, Gynecologist, ENT Specialists, Dental and Eye Care surgeons started to look at the ailing patients. All the major and minor surgeries will take place at the operation theaters at Akal Hospital itself.
Bless the Good Work!
