SELFLESS SERVICE

Swami Sivananda

Selfless service is the greatest force to inspire and elevate man to high levels. It brings about an all-round development of your faculties which nothing else can do. It ennobles your character, makes you manly and brings spontaneous spiritual awakening. Selfless service is most essential for physical, moral and spiritual regeneration of the youth of the world. The man who serves the world really serves the Lord. The man who helps others -really helps himself. A selfless worker constantly endeavours to look upon ail with equal vision as manifestations of the One Divine Being. All service to him is therefore a continuous worship of this ever-present divinity.


This is the stage of intuition, where objects disclose their essential character and, giving up all their tactics of opposition and revolt which they resorted to earlier, they assume a friendly attitude, and the whole universe seems to be on one’s beck and call. The denizens of the higher planes, themselves, begin to help the aspirant, instead of opposing him as they did before.
