Reiterating that service to human beings is ‘the most important worship that a human being can do’, Sri M emphasises that ‘ let us not think that we cannot do much – let us say, ‘let us do something,’ and that ‘something’ should start in here, in the heart.’
A Satsangi could get involved in ‘that something’, in the following ways:
These activities are indicative and an example of how a fellow Satsangi could get involved and do good and are by no means the only ways to share your concern and help those who are less fortunate.
Sri M encourages each person to contribute in a manner suitable to each person’s circumstances and needs, he says, ‘As long as we live in this world, this is what I would like to share with you – do good, in whatever way possible, to whoever is close to you. You need not go far and do it.’
