The idea of Seva (selfless service) is an important concept and practice of Yoga. Because the divine is perceived as having a relationship with others, as well as oneself, serving other people is considered an essential devotional practice.
Seva at Hridaya Hermitage is an opportunity to emulate the selfless and compassionate example of the Guru. In the presence of the Guru, influenced by the purity of their selfless motives, we provide an opportunity for aspirants to perform selfless acts, giving through time and effort in service of supporting the Hermitage.
Offering time and effort to the Hermitage is a unique experience, different from the tasks and activities of your day-to-day life. Everyone participating in Seva is aspiring to transcend personal benefit and develop internal strength. A spirit of camaraderie and joy pervade the atmosphere with the positive vibration of a collective selfless intention.
