31 Mar Karma Yoga
Karma Yoga is not for the fortune or the fame
Not for the gain or the inane
It is for the people who have the art and a generous heart
For the brave and a class apart
Come be a part!
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
Quite aptly put and could not agree more to the pithy aphorism. Unfortunately, we live in a modern society where we are experiencing, a new level of disconnect and progressively getting technology oriented is the set trend. We all are slowly and steadily losing the “Humane Touch.” Busy fast paced life and demanding “life-style” are constantly being justified at every level and every cross-section of society. Just observe- at home, at office the interaction with family or friends, is no longer what it used to be. Every other household is seeing a new level of breakdown or strained relationships and sure shot recipe promising limited personal growth. The long lost art of being in touch with neighbours and coming together as a unity for the betterment of society seems a distant dream.
In the quest for more, we are grossly missing out on “the attitude of gratitude,” for what we already have. Thus, ‘Spirit of Seva’ is essential not only for the betterment of society, but for our own spiritual growth as well. Expand your horizon and mind. The focus should be more on doing our bit. Maybe a little more effort every now and then- would this really hurt us that much? Quintessentially, the way to go is Karma Yoga or work with Bhava of Seva.
One of the cornerstones of a spiritually healthy personality is attitude of selfless service. And the benefits are multi-fold
- Seva Bhavana inculcates a sense of purpose and peace within.
- Satisfaction of doing something for the common good of people
- A small gesture or effort on your part can touch another life and change it for the better.
- It will further the cause of progress on the spiritual path.
- One develops tremendous faith and inner strength
- Makes you humane and humble
Thus, through hard-work, knowledge and sacrifices transcend and be free of all karmas. Karma Yoga with the Bhava of Seva is essential for spiritual growth, Success Mantra …Do right Karma, Make a difference with selfless service
The best cure- I know for worry is work. Work for a worthy cause and make a difference!
