Philosophy of Service शिवभावे जीवसेवा

“… How to worship God in man? Worshipping an image is easy. You can give plenty of food, and you can take the food back home too. But when you worship God in man, a different method is needed.

That is beautifully expressed by two great words in the sloka: Arhayet dana-manabhyam
Dana-manabhyam – ‘through dana, gift, and mana, respect. Remove their wants. If they are uneducated, give them education; if they are suffering, give them consolation; if they are helpless, help them. In this way practice dana. And while doing so, show mana, respect to them. Don’t throw a coin before a person with disrespect. So, dana must be combined with mana.
Arhayet dana-manabhyam – Arhayet, worship (me there); not merely serve.”
