VI 1. What does Swami say about seva and money?

Those who wish to serve society in the true spirit and experience joy should serve the society with dedication. They must undertake service activities according to their capacity and competence and should not over-stretch themselves. They should not get involved in fundraising. Money is the cause for many differences and conflicts. Concentrate on service. There will be no lack of funds for any good cause. There are enough persons in the Sai organisations with resources.
Sathya Sai Baba, 21 Nov 1987
What is required for service is not money and materials. A loving heart is the first requisite. All service done without a love-filled heart is as dry as dust. Fill your hearts with love. When you are filled with conceit, everything looks out of shape.
Sathya Sai Baba, 21 Nov 1988
