Seva at Ananda
“Activities that are undertaken in a spirit of joyous service have the effect of putting one in tune with the infinite source of all power. The more consciously one acts as a channel for divine energy, the more he finds his inner powers actually increasing.” —Swami Kriyananda
For a devotee, all actions can be a form of karma yoga when one does one’s duties with the thought of God flowing through oneself. Where needs exist, whether large or small, willing hands make miracles happen. We encourage you to share a little of your time, your skills and especially your energy in service to share the vibrations and the teachings of our Master.
