The body has to be utilised for service to others. Activity is its main purpose. Krishna says, “I have no need to be engaged in work but I do work in order to activate the world”. More ananda (bliss) can be won by serving others than what can be got by merely serving oneself. Offer service to someone in need, with a full heart and experience the ananda that results. It need not be something big. It can even be small and un­noticed by others. It has to be done to please the God within you and within the person you serve.

Identifying this truth, our volunteer Ruppa Chinna had identified a needy family which is to be served. Gangu RamaRao, resident of Ampolu Village, Srikakulam Dist., AP met with an accident and was bed ridden after undergoing 5 surgeries. His wife is a daily wage labor and he has two children who are studying. They are not even able to manage for daily bread due to their poverty. LAASA provided food under 100 day food program to this deserving family.

Work, worship and wisdom all begin with service. No matter what service it is, if it is done with love and divine feelings, it becomes upasana, worship.
