The Bharat Sevashram Sangha is a spiritual brotherhood of monks and selfless workers devoted to the service of humanity. It was founded in 1917 by the illustrious patron saint Acharya Srimat Swami Pranavanandaji Maharaj. It is a purely philanthropic and charitable organization with a non-sectarian, non-communal, and non-political character and outlook.
Bharat indicates that the Sangha's primary object is the emancipation of the people on the eternal lofty ideals of India or Bharat.
Seva imports the idea of serving people physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually. Not helping as a superior, but rather serving as a humble servant.
Ashram suggests that the system is based and disciplined on the ideals and practice of renunciation, self-control, truth, continence, and honest labor.

Sangha means organization; Sangha through its ideals and practice will infuse an organizational spirit through the disintegrated masses.

The Sangha Lord, the great operator of this universe has descended on the earth as the Sangha-Lord (Organiser of the Sangha). Clad in human body has manifested himself in this world as the Jagat-Guru out of boundless love and mercy for the created beings with a view to lead India and whole world in the path of universal emancipation and declares - I have again come down here as the spiritual leader. Oh thirsty afflicted and aggrieved! Take shelter in me. Don't be afraid, perturbed and distressed; I shall lift you up from all sins and crimes. Come to me.

The Acharya started his spiritual career definitely with a nation-building programme backed by Divine inspiration and power. Ever since 1916, he proceeded with his task step by step first by building up, under his special guidance and inspiration, the life of youth who had deidicated their lives to this great cause; then by co-ordinating all the elements and incorporating them into a powerful unitary force of the Sangha; and finally by unfolding and transmitting this spiritual force in successive stages of constructive activities in close conformity with the growing life of the nation and its requirements. He was of building up a powerfull nation on spiritual vitalism and it was his creed that such a nation alone could make its spritual message heard among the nation of the earth. Here is the 'Universal' aspect of his spiritual programme; and the work of the Sangha has been fast developing on lines laid down by him. Thus though all his written records viz. life-building, Sangha-building and nation-building is successive sage recieves greater emphasis and is dwelt with in fuller details with the growth of the Sangha and its activities.
