There’s only one thing which will bring happiness to you. When you humble yourself and serve others, then God will fill in the gap and shall serve you.

All relations are nurtured by selfless service. All selfless service comes from wisdom.

Simran gives the power of seva. People who do not do Simran cannot do seva, selfless service. Selfless service is a constant giving that makes you a giver, and God’s real form is a giver. 

Make your heart flow like a river—all your difficulties will wash away. The ambrosial hour is the time to get ready to go to the Universe; it is the hour of your life. Realize that this time is given to you to be pure and to live in piety, with a burning fire of compassion, touching every heart.

The best love is to serve all equally. 

Seva gives you radiance.

Serve people. Don’t expect results. Don’t put your harpoon into another person. Just serve. It will be an everlasting friendship.

How much sweetness is in you and how much of that sweetness are you willing to share? How much? How many times have you become one with each other in the name of God? How much closeness have you produced? How relaxed are you when somebody makes a mistake? Where is your kindness and compassion?

We are on this planet to love each other, to serve each other, and to uplift each other. We have come to this Earth to give, not to take. Don’t take pride in taking. Give. Give, and there will be virtue in what you will be given. And that will give you God.

Seva is infinite giving. Seva is not finite giving. If you do some service and say, ‘I served,’ then you have totally missed the point. Service is when you feel honored by doing something. You don’t feel honor in the company of many. You feel it within your own self. That is service – seva. Seva is when your inside is honored, when you honor yourself. When I am honored in my consciousness for doing something, it is seva. When I stand before my consciousness and feel good and say, ‘I am so blessed that I could do it.’ That’s seva.

Seva is a conscious and deliberate service to benefit another person even at your own cost. 

Your experience is important!
