Serve the elders, poor and needy and people in misery. That is verily Guru Seva.

Nama Article 30th October 2011



Sri Sri Swamiji has said about the greatness of Guru Seva. I am not fortunate to be by Sri Swamiji's side to serve Him. How do I perform Guru Seva?


Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


Serve the elders, poor and needy and people in misery. That is verily Guru Seva.



Global Organisation for Divinity has communicated to various Namadwaars and GOD satsangs to do Annadhanam (serve free food) / give free dresses to people in Old age homes, orphanages, home for mentally / physically challenged care centers, home for destitute women on the occasion of Sri Swamiji's Jayanthi. Namadwaars and GOD satsangs are also adviced to conduct Akanda Nama kirtan for world peace, harmony and a prosperous life for one and all on this auspicious day.


The same was done in a grand manner as Guru Seva by devotees across the globe.

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


As soon the lamp is taken in, the room is lit up in one stroke. It is the same with Guru's blessings. Our ignorance is removed in one stroke. 

Some are family functions, some are religious functions, some are national functions, some are international functions – WHICH IS A UNIVERSAL FUNCTION – Birthday celebrations of a True Mahathma is a UNIVERSAL FUNCTION


Guru's boundless grace is immeasurable, limitless and infinite.


I am not asking you to do giant tasks, but all I ask of you is, let the task be small, but do this with love and sincerity.


We would feel that there is none as rich as we are because we have got such a Guru Ratnam


Only a liberated person can awaken and liberate the person who is ignorant.


The common question that arises in everyone is 'What is essential to attain God – Grace or effort?'


God takes the form of a Guru and appears to the devotee; teaches him the Truth; purifies the mind by his teachings and contact


To remain in the Holy Feet of the Guru as a 'nobody' (zero); to remain like a doll in his hand. This is the only effort that can be taken by us.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
