No other sadhana(spiritual discipline) can bring you into the incessant contemplation of the oneness of all living beings. You feel another’s pain as your own. You share another’s success as your own. To see everyone else as yourself and yourself in everyone, that is the core of the sadhanaof seva. Again, sevamakes the ego languish for want of food. It makes you humble before the suffering of others; and when you rush to render help, you do not calculate how high or low a person’s social or economic status is.
Our volunteers, ArasavalliAppalaRaju and BatnaSriRama Murthy with their kind heart identified 4 needy women and a needy couple in Snivada Village, Srikakulam Dist., AP. NeelapuAmmanna(age-72), UngatiChinnamma(physically handicapped woman), BendiAsirappa, Ruppa Rajamma(blind woman) are 4 needy old women living alone. They don’t have even shelter and proper food. VandanaSimmayya(age-65) who earlier worked as a rickshaw-puller was paralyzed. Even his wife VandanaChinnammi(age-60) was also a paralyzed patient. This old couple is in great need of food. LAASA provided food and nutrition under 100-day food program to this needy and deserving people.
The hardest heart is slowly softened into the softness of butter by the opportunities that the foundation offers in the form of service. Thus, through seva(selfless service) you realize that all beings are waves of the ocean of Divinity.
