"It is seva that accelerates the sadhana of a seeker and lights the path to God."

 -from Enthusiasm
 by Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

There is a saying that it is easy to be a saint on a mountaintop, but the real proof comes when you return to the marketplace. On the Siddha Yoga path, we test our attainment and refine our understanding through the practice of seva, or selfless service. As we work with others in a spiritual environment, we have a practical means to put the Siddha Yoga teachings into action.

During the practice of seva, we perform familiar activities -- whether cooking, cleaning, teaching, or working at the computer -- with a focus on the Self, with awareness. Siddha Yoga students offer seva at Siddha Yoga retreats, meditation centers, and ashrams, creating a tangible offering of love in action.

The Siddha Yoga Meditation Center in Miami has many and varied seva opportunities, including:

  • Bookstore clerks
  • Greeters
  • Cooking vegetarian meals to be enjoyed after our Saturday night programs

  • Cleaning
  • Audio Visual
  • Involvement in the music department
  • Web site and Newsletters
  • Housekeeping
