V ii Attitude of the Sevak(Volunteer)

4. What should be the point of focus while doing Seva - quality or quantity?

We must consider that we have taken birth only to render service to society. Whatever small service we may do, if we do it in the right spirit, serving, with no thought of self, we shall be doing something commendable and worthwhile. An act of service by itself may be a small thing. But it must be done wholeheartedly. Just as a cow transforms whatever it may consume into sweet, wholesome milk; any kind of service rendered with a pure heart will result in great good. You should not have any returns in view in rendering service. "This is my duty. I am born to serve"--it is with such an attitude that you should take up service.
