It is seva that accelerates the sadhana of a seeker and lights the path to God.
~ from Enthusiasm by Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
Seva is selfless service that is offered without any expectation of praise or gain.
When you visit the Center, you will see many people performing a variety of tasks to support the Center. These are all sevites. Please stop by our Seva Center located directly across from the Amrit dining room.
During the practice of seva, we perform all the tasks that are needed to operate the Center––whether cooking, cleaning, hosting, or welcoming––while maintaining an awareness of the Self. In this way, seva becomes a way to build on one’s experience in meditation and develop the experience of the Self in action.
The Siddha Yoga Meditation Center in Los Angeles operates entirely through selfless service.
Some people receive sevas in areas where they have skills, other receive sevas in areas that require new skills. Every seva is equally important and each seva provides an equal opportunity to cultivate one’s virtues.
We warmly invite you to participate in the practice of seva. Selfless service is not only one of the core Siddha Yoga practices, it’s a great way to meet people and participate in the community. Please submit a seva form below. Let us know any special skills you have, or departments you are interested in serving, but please be open to offering seva wherever it serves most.
