BEST KIND OF SERVICE

In a society which is dominated by merely material conceptions of life, service is interpreted in terms of supplying bread and clothes, or physical amenities of existence. In a society which values intellect, service is interpreted in terms of spreading learning in different forms. In a society which has developed a taste for beauty, service is interpreted in terms of organizing the production and distribution of work of art. In a society which is responsive to the ineffable values of heart, service is interpreted in terms of constructing those channels which will facilitate the culture and expression of heart. And in a society which is alive to the supreme importance of the spirit, service is interpreted in terms of imparting spiritual understanding. Of these different type of service, the service which is concerned with spiritual understanding is the highest, because spiritual understanding includes the right perspective to all human problems, and promotes a solution of them all.

Be true karma yogis; serve, but serve with absolute selflessness. Keeping your "I-ness" at arm's length, serve in the name of Beloved God
