V ii Attitude of the Sevak(Volunteer)

3. What is the importance of having a steady mind while doing seva?

A sevak must be neither elated nor dejected; he must adhere to the middle path. When Raama asked Hanuman to proceed towards the Southern region and described the dangers of the route, he was not dejected; when He gave him the ring to be handed over to Seetha, he was not elated that he had been chosen for the supreme task and given the glorious chance. He just obeyed. Sufficient unto him was the order of his Master, "Go." Hanumaan is the ideal volunteer; efficient, humble, silent, serviceable, intelligent, eager, devoted.
