I 2. Who symbolises the ideal of service?

Hanuman is the supreme exemplar of the ideal of service. When the Rakshasas asked Hanuman, during his search for Sita in Lanka, who he was, he replied simply: "Daasoham Kosalen-drasya." He was content to describe himself as the humble servant of Rama.
Sathya Sai Baba, 25 Jan 1985
   
Hanuman is the ideal volunteer; efficient, humble, silent, serviceable, intelligent, eager, devoted.
Sathya Sai Baba, 29 Mar 1967
