During this period of service Swami Ji had established nearly 200 institutions of National importance.

In addition to these institutions, most esteemed Swamiji had been involved in the service of Family Welfare, Swadesh Prachar, upliftment of Dalit and untouchables, Prohibition of Wine, safety of Environment, Communal amity and brother-hood.
Swamiji took interest in eradication cruel institution of child marriage, Dowry, and family disputes. He also took memorable part in freedom struggle. He remained into contact of Rastra Pita Mahatma Gandhi Ji.
Swamiji first met Mahatma Gandhi in Sabermati Ashram Ahmedabad in the year 1915. Swamiji deriving the inspiration from Rashtra Pita, visited villages bare footed and worked for the upliftment of poor villagers.
For a long time Swamiji hadbeen working for the Bharatiya Culture, Education, Health and improving the conditions of down trodden. He believes that real worship of god was to serve the down trodden.
Swamiji did not need any Honours, titles and prizes. But in 1982 the then President, Government of India Shri Neelam Sanjiva Reddy taking his great works and high social service conformed upon Swamiji Padma Shree. As matter of fact the Honour of Padam Shree hadnot honoured Swamiji but Padam Shree itself had been honoured. In 1993 Swamiji was first to be selected for the Nanda Naitikk Puraskar instituted by Gulzari Lal Nanda foundation after the name of Shri Gulzari Lal Nanda. Although the selfless services rendered by Swamiji are so much that the highest honour of the country if awarded to Swamiji shall equate his services. The great and revered personality of Swamiji hadrein much higher then these honours and prizes. He had done so may kindness and services to the nation and we cannot repay him in any way-Swamiji was in reality was heavenly saint and Epoch creator.
