Aum Sri Sairam
There is nothing meritorious in serving those who are high above us. For one thing, they can command the services of attendants. Rendering service to those who are in the same position as ourselves also is not commendable. Service should be rendered to those who are worse off than us and who are neglected by the world. It is the weak, the destitute and the helpless who need to be served. Even in rendering service to such persons, there should be no feeling that we are serving “others”. We should feel that we are serving the Lord Narayana who dwells in them.
SSS 20.26: November 19, 1987
Always try to help those who are in distress, those who are suffering and the poor. Once upon a time, there lived in Tamil Nadu a poet and holy
man who used to sit on a veranda in his house in front of the Lord’s picture and chant beautiful songs. One day, it was raining heavily and he sought shelter in another little veranda in the village. One other man came and asked him if he could also take shelter there. The bhakta (devotee) said he could. He said, “There was place only for me to stretch out, but now that you are here we will sit up”. Later, another man came and asked for shelter. The bhakta consented saying, “There was place for the two of us to sit. Now that you also have come, let us all stand”. He thus taught the principle of helping one another and not sending anyone away who needed help. If you have three morsels of food and you find another man with no food, you must cultivate the spirit of serving and parting with one morsel of food for the other man. You must cultivate this attitude of sharing with others the good things you have. Then only can you put into practise the great principle of finding Īshwara (God) in every creature. You must practise this principle in daily life.
