How to make life worthwhile, not worthless. “Service to Man is service to God,” says Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Sathya Sai Baba also says that selfless service is the first step on the spiritual path, the best spiritual exercise to remove the evil of egoism and to eliminate the nefarious pull of the mind toward desires. “The core of this spiritual discipline of selfless service,” says Sathya Sai Baba, “is to see everyone as yourself and yourself in everyone.” He says that when we serve, we are not serving others, we are serving the God in us, the same God who is equally present in others. It is this attitude that changes our service into selfless service, making it a spiritual activity. “The real value of this service,” says Sathya Sai Baba, “is that it reforms us and reshapes us as we serve.”
