During his spiritual journey, Pujya Muktanandji Bapu identified that the Indian society was going through the paradigm change. The joint family system was giving way to nuclear unit society which marginalised the senior citizens. The failing health, their need of affection and self respect were a major concern. Thus the first step towards giving them self pride along with Sahyog Trust the reform began. Pujya Bapu found an existing ‘Radhaba Sanyas Ashram’ at Menderada. He made it happy place for the old age people to live in. Financial support was provided by few trusted devotees.

Many more old people found shelter under umbrella compassionated by Pujya Bapu. He got more support and established a ‘Dadaji Vruddhashram at Chaparda’ and then another ashram in Gupt Prayag called ‘Prayag Ashram’.
