Seva Sadan Bhoomi Pooja – Divine Discourse Summary – March 29, 2017

Perform all actions as an offering to God

God has created this world as a land of action. It is therefore very important for each one of us to think about the kind of activity we take up, through which we can ultimately taste the fruits of bliss and redeem our lives.

Work is done to purify the mind. So, we should choose such activities which will lead to purification of our mind. Therefore, the process is to transform all the work we do into worship. Then duty itself becomes God. When you perform your actions with God-centric attitude, it becomes worship. But when it is selfish and ego-centric, it becomes bondage.

Even in a temple, the acts of worship can turn into work because of the attitude with which it is done. The priest does worship from dawn to dusk in a temple. But if he thinks it is a kind of work, it is a kind of duty, it remains just that. He won’t get any bliss out of it. But here, starting with a watchman right up to the administrator and the trustee, everybody should consider what they do as worship. And with that attitude, they should perform their work. Therefore, this mansion, which is going to come up here should look like a temple from outside – because all that is done inside this building is worship. When you perform action with that kind of sincerity of purpose, thenthe result will always be right.

For anyone, who joins this institution or organisation offering everything – all his talent, all his capacity- in service, is the highest thing. Therefore, fulfil your lives by utilising all the facilities that will be provided here for doing this kind of noble work. Swami has named this building as Seva Sadana but the Seva Sadana should become Seva Sadhana or service which takes you nearer to God.
