In 1978, when Guruji arrived in Jersey City, I had this intense desire to do seva for Guruji. I had made homemade ghee and blended cardamom seeds to be used in Guruji’s cooking. But the family that was hosting Guruji during his stay said that they had bought everything they needed from the Indian grocery store.
Meanwhile, Guruji, the knower of all, had already accepted my seva. He created circumstances that needed my seva. First of all, the lady that went shopping for the groceries realized that she had bought the ghee but accidentally left it at the store, so my homemade ghee came in handy. A little later Dileepji called and said that they needed cardamom powder.
Also during Guruji’s stay, I really wanted to cook for Guruji, Anandi Ma and Dileepji. This dream of seva also came true when I was offered a wonderful opportunity to cook for Guruji for about ten days. During this time I had a back problem, which seemed to disappear during the time I was performing seva for Guruji.
In short, seva is a wonderful experience of bliss. While doing seva, you forget your problems and you forget how tired you are. So next time a seva opportunity comes your way … GRAB IT!
Jai Sita Ram,
