Question on Mansa Seva
om shanti sweet brother.all of ur explanations help me a lot to realise the gyan in depth and also gives me the power to overcome the blockages that come in the way of my spiritual journey.thank u to my Bapdada and to u,dear soul.Now i am asking another question to u.brother.BABA often says us to do mansa seba as it will be the strongest means for the final period.i want to clarify it.does it mean 1 give positive vibrations 2 create positive thoughts to spread in the atmosphere 3 to give vibrations through dristi and smiling 4 to take the farista swaroop and tour around the world or placing ourselves on the globe spreading positive vibrations etc.my question is does the vibrations i send really works?how can i realise that?it may be that by doing so i feel good bt do the souls or the nature really receive it? how can i get the practical proof of their improvement?may be it is an unneccessary doubt i am creating bt to me ,who does not get enough chances to do yagya seba for being a housewife ,i want to do much of mansaseba for the painstricken souls allover the world.pls suggest how can i remove this doubt.thank u in advance.om shanti.
Thank you for your nice question!
BapDada is giving you that “end result.” Smiling is not something that we “practice.” It is not something that we “act” and fake to others. Smiling is what appears automatically when we are content, happy. If you have seen someone with a very frank smile, you will know what I mean. It is not about showing your teeth or making a face. A spiritual smile is the outcome of a happy heart. Likewise with thoughts. You think something, we can put it into the “wasteful,” “negative” or “positive,” baskets. BapDada teaches us to transform “negative into positive,” but also He has taught us to “be” merged in remembrance so we could be used as instruments.
Dear soul, as a housewife you have plenty of opportunities to do “seva.” Your immediate family, relatives, when you go shopping, etc. The only thing that matter is your internal stage. “Service” comes from that. Therefore, I urge you to have greater experience in meditation, then those vibrations and that drishti and that smile will come out automatically without your thinking about it. That is “unlimited seva” dear soul… 🙂
The proof that it is working for others, is when it is working for yourself. Check that you are changing, transforming and “others” will tell you that, when they see that; you know it is working…
Question: Dear Brother, Am in gyan for some years , i enjoy listening to murli and attending classes,,,listening to sr brothers and sisters . But am not sure what seva i can do .This question haunts me . As others would expect me to give small talks ,meet people and give gyan ,dont know why it drives me far away. Can u guide -what seva means and its importance
Thank you for your great question!
“Seva” or “service” is the consequence of self transformation, through Gyan (Knowledge,) yoga (experience of the self and God) and Dharna or (inculcation of divine virtues.) That is Raja Yoga 101.
In a nutshell, as you change yourself then automatically there will be service on the same extent, because we exist in relationship with “others.”
“Service” is not something that you “do.” It is the consequence of “being” transformed. In that, you can make “photocopies for Baba,” if your consciousness is the right one, so you are irradiating peace; that is service.
One more time, your “doing” is always in function of what you are. You cannot benefit anyone unless there has been benefit on the self first.
“To do things” or adquire things for the benefit of others, depends on your resources; your “karma.” But to “do things” as to everything you “do” is service; that means to be “service itself,” then you do not need to worry about “what to do” anymore.
Question: Dear Brother, one thing is bothering me for sometime, the time from when I have decided that I will follow shrimat and be with baba only while doing all my lokik jobs. In gyan, a time comes when you don’t find attachment to any lokik relative as well as lokik profession, I want to do service and want to follow brahmin code of conduct honestly. At that time, It is very difficult to decide how to go further? I am in scientific profession where nobody accepts the knowledge and many theories are opposite to the real understanding (according to gyan). I have come so far in this profession that I can’t leave it but if I continue, I won’t be able to give time for sewa and regularly go to centre which I really like… While I also think that If I am really following brahmin code of conduct, I should be more satisfied with my work… Could You please give me some suggestions if I was successful in making you understand this problem? Thank you…
Thank you for your question!
Follow your heart, not your mind.
Service is no only talking gyan and doing public events or socializing with people so they come to the meditation center. “Service” is unlimited when we “show the Father through our actions.”
We are “numberwise” in this path; so if you listen to your heart, you will know what is next.
Readers remarks: Your Godly service is indeed great. I have now become a regular reader of your blog which provides wonderful presentation on each and every aspect of BK Gyan – interesting and inspiring and thought provoking. Your understanding, approach and clarifications on various doubts raised by thousands of BK Brothers – in a clear and simple manner – are truly amazing.
Thank you, dear soul… As BapDada mentioned today, this is not the time to “eat the fruit,” 🙂
It is not “my” service; but something that this role needs to do to “survive” in Brahmin life at this time.
Rather, I have to thank all of you, readers; for “keeping me alive.” 🙂
I am glad to know that you are taking benefit of this as well as others. That is an inspiration to continue.
Every role has their own specialties and all we need to do is to share them once we are aware of them…..
Thank you again for voicing your kind thoughts and Best wishes! 🙂
