Yours in the service of Gurudev,
SERVICE IS WORSHIP: The Master visited the Eye Relief Camp conducted by
Dr. Adhwaryoo at the Ashram. On seeing the volunteers at work, he said,
"If one serves like this, feeling that every patient is God Himself, where
is the need for meditation? God will be immensely pleased with his service
and will bless him with liberation. Selfless service presupposes devotion
Before leaving the Camp, the Master conducted Kirtan and Japa of the Maha
Mrityunjaya Mantra for the welfare of the patients who had been operated
on by Dr. Adhwaryoo.
"Man's concept of pleasure is nothing but an outcome of his erroneous
judgment of a present good, his desire is the result of a wrong idea of a
future good, his pain the consequence of a false notion of a present evil
and his fear the corollary of a mistaken evaluation of the nature of a
future evil." - Swami Krishnananda
