Spiritual Discipline is preparatory to Selfless Service

A set of persons with curious ideas have cropped up recently and they strut about with great pride, for they have no yearning for God, even no use for God; they are sevaks and they are satisfied with service!  But the essence of seva is selflessness and abnegation of the fruit thereof; the sevaks have no right to look down upon the godly and the spiritual aspirants as inferior.  For, that is but reaching for the fruit while neglecting the tree!  Selfless service is the final fruit of the godward discipline.  How can the fruit be gained, without the long and laborious nurture of the tree?  The very foundation of nishkama karma is prema towards all beings, prema that seeks no reward.  Without spiritual experience of this higher love, selfless service is impossible.

- Baba -


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
