The Sadhu Vaswani Mission is a noted charitable organization based in Pune, India. It is engaged in various philanthropic activities in fields such as education, healthcare, social service, animal rights, feeding of the poor and spiritual upliftment. It's spiritual head is the educationist, poet, U Thant Peace Award winner and modern saint J. P. Vaswani.

The organization was originally founded by Sadhu T. L. Vaswani (Sadhu is an Indian title for one who undertakes and is proficient in spiritual austerities) in Hyderabad, Sindh. It was called the Brotherhood Association then. After his demise the organization was renamed to its current name. Sadhu Vaswani (as he was affectionately called) was a prolific writer[1] of inspirational texts during the freedom struggle in India as well as of insightful spiritual texts throughout his lifetime. His spiritual poems have been compiled into the Nuri Granth which is probably the world's largest single compilation of spiritual poems by a single author.
