• Seva refines and perfects human being

  • Seva unfolds faculties of mind and intellect

  • True human qualities gets expressed through seva

  • Seva makes it possible to experience divinity

  • World does not need your seva and it does not come to an end without your seva. You should render seva for your own sake to become pure and sanctified, so that you can experience Unity in Diversity.

  • Unity, Purity and Divinity that is Humanity
     
  • One cannot cross the ocean of the cycle of births and deaths by visiting many sacred places, nor can one do it by performing thapas (penance) and studying shastras (holy scriptures). It is only possible to do so by performing Seva, or service."

  • Life without service is like a house without light.
     
  • Since God is the indwelling Divine Spirit of all living beings, doing service or good to a person is in reality worshiping God
     
  • LOVE must be manifested as Service or Seva. Seva must take the form of food for the hungry, solace for the forlorn, consolation for the sick and the suffering.
     
  • But do not believe that you can by means of Seva (service) reform or reshape the world. You may or may not achieve this. That does not matter. The real value of Seva is its most visible result, that it reforms you and reshapes you. Do Seva as a sadhana (spiritual practice); then you will be humble and happy.
     
  • NO service is too low or mean; every emergency is immediately noticed and attended to. They need not be sorry that during those days they had no time to sit for Dhyana or do Japa or even to go out on Nagarsankirtan! Why? You can have the Name on the lips, when you sweep the streets or lift a corpse in the morgue or when you walk towards or away from the area of distress. People may dub you mad! But be elated that you are not affected by the insanity they suffer from!
     
  • DO not consider any act of service as demeaning. Sweeping the streets, for example, is not below your dignity. Do you not sweep the floor of your homes? Do you not scrub and wash off dirt? When you undertake such tasks, the villagers will also gladly share in them. Why feel ashamed to be good?
