Yoga — Skill in Action
Offering Seva in Shree Muktananda Ashram

Seva, selfless service, is one of the core spiritual practices on the Siddha Yoga path. At Shree Muktananda Ashram, staff and visiting Siddha Yogis from around the world offer their skills, talents, and energy in support of the SYDA Foundation’s work—serving the Siddha Yoga Mission.

In a great scripture of India, Shri Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna teaches, "Yoga is skill in action." By serving with love and attentiveness, we cultivate proficiency, self-confidence, joy, and evenness of mind, and we strengthen our connection to the inexhaustible source of joy and power at the core of our being. Practicing seva in this way, we move toward attaining the goal of yoga: the steady awareness of our union with the Self.

As you view these photos of Siddha Yogis engaged in many different types of seva, you are invited to reflect on how each expresses skill in action through qualities such as focus, respect, and enthusiasm.

As I look at these photos of Siddha Yogis offering seva in Shree Muktananda Ashram, I can feel the peace and warmth of their hearts shining through their actions in the middle of this snow-covered landscape. And I feel like I am there with them, offering seva in Shree Muktananda Ashram.

It is so beautiful to see Shree Muktananda Ashram blanketed in the abundance of sparkling white snow crystals. I laughed in delight to see the big chunks of snow flying into the air as the person offering seva poked the awning!

Everyone in this set of photos looks ecstatic to me, and I feel ecstatic too just seeing them!
