Our time on earth is sacred, and how we choose to spend it can say a lot about our internal compass. Through a Buddhist or Hindu karmic lens, it is believed that our actions in this existence determine our fate in future existences.
You’ve certainly heard the golden rule of treating others the way you’d like to be treated, which if acted upon, is a surefire way to achieve good karma!
In the yoga sphere, there’s a Sanskrit word “seva”, which describes a selfless act of service. Seva promotes volunteering and service as a road that leads to higher spirituality.
There are many ashrams around the globe that devoted yogis will perform seva at to further their spiritual practice and improve the life of their guru.
At the end of the day, there’s no better feeling than knowing you positively impacted the lives of those around you during your waking hours!
How are you practicing seva?
