Thought for the Day

Sathya Sai Baba
With regards to service, you must be clear on what is Rajasik service andSatwik service. You may go to clean streets, build roads, dig wells or build houses, and do them all as service to the community. You may also go to a hospital and visit patients. Doing service in the name of ‘social work’ is not real service. Satwik service is that which gives real happiness. It requires that you serve any and every person as an embodiment of the Divine. Divinity (Narayana) is present in two forms amongst all people – wealthy (Lakshmi Narayana) or poor and needy (Daridra Narayana). A rich man may have any number of people to attend to him. But there would be no one to serve the destitute and disadvantaged. Treating the poor and needy as Divine embodiments and serving them lovingly is Satwik service.
- Divine Discourse, 'My Dear Students', Vol 2, Ch 3.
Service must spring out of Love and scatter Love in profusion. - Baba
