Seva means selfless service, and lies at the heart of kundalini yoga—selfless action asks us to serve others with no expectation of outcome. It can be a challenging task sometimes as our mind tells us we need recognition for our good deeds. . Letting go of our agenda and work together for a common goal softens our ego. Ultimately seva becomes a practice of purification.
As humans, we want to make a connection, and the simplest and most immediate way to make that connection is to serve. When we serve side by side with our fellow kundalinis we experience shuniya—a zeroing of our self and our own ego-driven agendas. We live and we serve from a place of emptiness—and from that emptiness all things come: joy, compassion, love, and a sense of belonging.
Seva is the final step of spiritual maturity. To serve without ego, without expectation of return; to uplift others without thought of ourselves or our own needs—that is true seva and it is a gift. The joy of seva is a life which is lived selflessly; a life which finds its abundance in people, a life which measures its success in the number of people who were served, healed, touched, uplifted on any given day and it’s a big part of kundalini yoga and this festival
