What is Seva ?
A Spiritual Path
Spiritual growth includes both spiritual practices and labour. Crystallisation of your spirit will come about when reality meets the resistance of your mind and of your fantasises. Burning your karma and fast progress will come about when you confront your subconscious patterns and tendencies and surrender to the greatness of the present moment. The humble work of cleaning, cooking, serving food, working in the garden, hosting guests and helping others are ways to serve God.
Seva Program at the Ashram
The Ram Dass Guru Association Seva Program offers an opportunity to all who would like to do selfless service in the Ashram. Participants share daily community practices such as Sadhana and Kirtan and meals, and work together to maintain the Ashram house and garden. It is an opportunity to embark on a 40-day practice, the time it takes to drop or implement a habit. All this close to the sea and immersed in a typical rural area of Portugal.
