Speaking at the inauguration, Shri Thaneeru Harish Rao said, “We are happy to extend every support to the Heartfulness institute for the health and wellness programmes as well as its medical centers. We know that they will be not just well-known nationally, but will also get known internationally for their excellent standards and high ethics. I very am confident that here under Pujya Daaji’s guidance there will always be good practices such as no superfluous diagnostic testing. The Government of Telangana will be always there to support such wonderful initiatives, though I am so happy to see that they may not even need it as they have done so well indeed! I am also happy to learn that Daaji announced that those in need of medical assistance and may not have the means to avail of such facilities will be given ample support.”
Shri Kamlesh Patel, fondly called Daaji, Guide-Heartfulness added, “Our aim is to make healthcare and medical care accessible to those who are not able to avail them owing to topography barriers. When someone is ill physically, he cannot have an active mind. It is only those who have conquered the mental and spiritual obstacles that can overcome physical ailments also. But to others physical ailment can be addressed through a proper medical diagnosis and treatment. A healthy body is the route to a healthy mind and soul. We at Kanha Medical Centre are committed to bring the best medical care possible to those living around which is why we have the best doctors, state-of-the-art facilities, and medical care devoted to the health of the residents here.”
