“All of you who wish to offer much-needed help, now or in the future, I bless.
To cooperate with God’s work is to cooperate with God Himself.”
– Paramahansa Yogananda

Why is Guru-Seva Important to My Sadhana?

“Eagerly serving the guru – especially by dedication to exemplifying and promoting his ideals and principles – the disciple’s intuition develops; he automatically receives the wisdom-vibrations of his master.”
-Paramahansa Yogananda

Guru-seva – service to the guru – is the devotional practice of supporting the guru’s work. Guru-seva is that transforming aspect of sadhana which helps us to draw closer to the Guru through our daily activities.

Many willing hearts and hands are needed to grow this global endeavor. Thankfully, by using the latest digital technologies, people from all around the world can join together to serve without ever leaving their homes.
