selfless service (seva)

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
-- Winston Churchill

- By doing selfless service, we get closer to other people, undertand their difficulties and become more compassionate. This is a step towards removing barriers between us and them.

- Seva is a not a duty but an opportunity. Only selected ones get a chance to help others.

- We don't know what circumstances we will go through tomorrow, those who we are helping today may help us tomorrow.

-- Paraphrased from a speech on Seva by Ms. Grewal in Sikh Heritage Dinner.
