Secret of Service (Seva) (35:50)
The soul is an eternal servant of God, who is synonymous with bliss. Therefore every individual soul is an eternal servant of happiness. True happiness is found in God, who is the one whom we desire to serve eternally. Because God and Guru are one, initially we will serve the Guru and ultimately we will realise our eternal servitude with the Guru's grace. Specific guidelines for how to practice or render seva (service) to ensure we qualify to receive the Guru's grace.
