Sairam ! Hari Raya Seva was undertaken by SSIOS , reaching out to 50 underprivileged families. On the 25th of May, SSIOS provided them with groceries and vouchers for the festive season.

Volunteers went to the homes of these families to deliver the food items and chat with them. An additional dose of love was indeed given along with the care package.

Through Seva Sadhana, Hanuman attained identity with Rama, as the river attains identity with the sea. Arjuna too considered every act as Sadhana to attain the grace of Krishna, for Krishna directed him to fight on, ever keeping Him in memory - "Maamanusmara Yuddhyacha". You too should keep God ever in your mind as the pacesetter, whether you are serving patients in the hospitals or cleaning a drain in the bazaar. That is the tapas, that is the highest form of Sadhana. More than listening to a hundred lectures or delivering them to others, offering one act for genuine Seva attracts the Grace of God.
