Seva

There is a message circulating on face book about Paying it Forward where you need to do something for 3 people before the end of 2014 (no offence to anyone who is participating). This brought this saying of Buddha in my head – “Kindness should become the natural way of life, not the exception”. So today I introduce you to the Sanskrit word “Seva” which translates to selfless service. The desire to do seva is intensely propelled by a desire to serve for little or NO money/remuneration.  So the question now is how do you do that in a life/society where you need to pay mortgages, bills, student fees etc..
