When you call yourself a member of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Dal, you must always serve remembering that you are serving the Lord. Remember in what spirit Hanuman served Sri Rama. You should not imagine that because he was a monkey he lacked intelligence or other qualities. He has been described as ‘tranquil, virtuous and strong.’ When questioned by the demons in Ashokavana in Lanka as to who he was and where he had come from, Lord Hanuman replied, “I am the servant of Rama”. He did not boast about his valour or knowledge but was content to describe himself as a humble and devoted servant of the Lord. Bear in mind the maxim, “Without being a kinkara (one who is ready to carry out the Lord’s command) you cannot become Sankara (The Divine).” Transform your life through service, without giving any room for arrogance or self-interest. Firmly install in your heart the feeling that wherever and whenever you serve, you serve the Lord alone. Only then, serving fellow-beings becomes equal to serving God!
