"If you lift the hand to serve, to help, to console, to encourage another man you are lifting it for God, because in every man is God."
In our Sai Centres, selfless service is just as important a spiritual activity as devotional singing. What follows is a selection of Sathya Sai Baba's teachings on service in order that we may understand why selfless service is just as important as devotional singing. Our first observation is that we can see that Sathya Sai Baba Himself spends His life in service:
The members of our Organisation must be ready and eager to help students, the sick, and the poor. Feel that this is work that pleases Me ... Spend your days and years in activities that help those in dire need, and thus make this human existence of yours worthwhile and fruitful.
[Sathya Sai Speaks. 1974.11.23]
Let me tell you that nothing is impossible if an organised society is set on achieving it. Even liberation from material entanglement can be won through serving and promoting the progress of society. Through the sense of unity, the willingness to sacrifice, and the softness of compassion, all objects can be gained. So, the Sathya Sai Organisation must move forward with hearty enthusiasm in the field of service to society.
[Sathya Sai Speaks. 1981.11.19]
