Seva

"Seva is a wonderful way to stay connected to the community and the flow of Grace that moves through everything Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram does." – Kamala G

Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service,” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India,  seva was believed to help one's spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community.
When you offer seva, you engage in the practice of karma yoga.

Seva has always been alive in our organization, and we are grateful to all who have offered their seva over the decades.

Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram would not be where it is today without the support and dedication of our sevites! See a list of our current sevites (link to Sevite Directory).

"When I signed on as editor of Tadaa! I just intend ed to give back time and work to the source of yoga immersions and teacher training that has truly put me on a path of personal spiritual growth and delightful healing in body and mind. I just intended to give back — but the seva keeps giving me more of all that I cherish in Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram." – Matrika G.
