Seva, or selfless service, is an ancient tradition. It has been practiced for thousands of years. There are many kinds of service. One can perform karma yoga by helping people in need. It places us in correct relationship with God. Seva comes from an open heart. It is an expression of generosity, respect and love of the God and our fellow human beings.
The inner secret of seva is that we end up benefiting the most from the seva we perform. It works by getting us out of our ego and by freeing us from focusing on our selfish interests. Instead of focusing on what we want or need to be happy, we discover that our own happiness comes from helping others. People who never help others are rarely happy themselves. A hand that is always grabbing and clinched isn’t open to receive. Give and you shall receive. It’s is a divine law.
Following this tradition, our volunteer Gorle Appalanaidu has identified a poor and needy woman Kanchipeta Jayamma at Patarlapalli, Ranasthalam Mandal, Srikakulam Dist. She lost her husband. She was taken care of her daughter who was married. Her daughter was died recently. This dragged her to a miserable condition. She is living alone and was not able to fill her belly. We the LAASA has provided food under 100 day food program to this deserving woman.
