GURU SEVA (SERVICE TO GURU)

Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu
Gurur Devo Maheshwaraha
Guru Saakshat Param Brahma
Tasmai Sree Gurave Namah

Guru is verily the representative of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He manifests and sustains knowledge, and destroys the weeds of ignorance. I salute such a Guru.

"With each step taken by a devotee towards Guru, the Guru takes many more steps towards the devotee to guide him in the course of his journey both mundane and spiritual. And what is this journey? It is a journey where you begin to unlearn all that you have learnt, you begin to lose rather than gain, you begin to give rather than take, you begin to accept rather than react and you begin to Be rather than become" - Sri Swamiji.
Swamiji is extraordinary. He is simple, loving and giving to a degree that is impossible to imitate by any humans. His unconditional and boundless love extends to all living beings, in fact to all creation. Those who come under Swamiji's influence get transformed. They themselves become more loving and giving, less self-centered, less greedy, less obsessed with fleeting worldly pleasures, less concerned with money, possessions, fame and power and less prone to anxiety and stress. Their health improves, their problems diminish, their joy increases. They learn to gracefully accept a lot in their life. They feel contended and happy. They begin to radiate peace.
It is indeed a wonderful opportunity to be able to partake and carryout Sadguru Sri Swamiji's activities in upholding righteousness and restoring world peace.
Sri Swamiji has bestowed a marvelous opportunity to be able to participate in His activities to serve the mankind by contributing any amount to Guru Seva and seek His divine blessings.
Some of His missions include :

  • Actively participate in Social, Cultural, Religious and Spiritual services across the world
  • Renovation and adaptation of old Temples
  • Promote Annadana in Ashrama branches
  • Restoration of Human Dharma (conduct of righteousness)
  • Contribute to World peace by embracing Universal brotherhood
  • Offer Health care services to the needy
  • Preserving Vedic Dharma and Culture
