One of the basic tenants of spiritual accomplishment is something called “seva” in the East, or “service” in the West. More than a list of specific acts performed, the notion of seva is the condition of giving from an open heart. Master DK has taught for years about the grace and merit that is beautifully accumulated with the offering of seva.
Not only does seva benefit where it is specifically applied, it facilitates the work of the Masters and blesses the one who offers the seva. Those who serve others with a grateful heart free themselves from the dictates of the lower self, which always puts its own needs above the needs of others. In other words, practicing seva is a time-tested method of dissolving selfishness. Everyone is encouraged to actively offer seva in every moment of their lives.
