IV iv When to Serve?

2. Can a volunteer treat seva as a stop gap arrangement?

Volunteership should not be a temporary role assumed by you for this one week. It should not be like the role of Harischandra in the drama, played by the champion liar of the town. Harischandra never wavered from the path of truth, whatever the milieu that served as background for life: the palace, the jungle, the cremation ground.
Sathya Sai Baba, 22 Nov 1965
