Seva - Details
Following the teachings of Swami Sivananda Saraswati “To live is to Serve” and “To live is to Give”, Satyam Yoga Trust’s Seva Wing renders selfless service without any attachment and with the attitude that one is not the doer.
SYT’s Seva Wing galvanizes the people to work for the cause of the less fortunate and channelises their efforts into an organized crusade to combat pain, poverty, inequality and illiteracy. The mission of the Seva Wing is to make real the idea of a society consisting of free and equal citizens who are able to come together to solve the problems that affect them and to build a society in which citizens of plural background come together and work to empower the least advantaged in society.
SYT’s Seva Wing recognizes that children are tomorrow’s torch-bearers of the society. Hence it visits various orphanages and stimulates a learning environment using a wide variety of activities including games, singing, dancing, story telling, etc. and at the same time inculcating yoga and meditation in the children’s mind.
SYT’s Seva Wing has been serving as the eyes to the visually handicapped by reading, guiding and writing examinations for them and serving them as per their needs.
The Seva Wing also accommodates rural children every year in the members’ homes as a measure of exposure towards the urban culture and an opportunity to nurture them with love and affection. By enabling the rural children to mingle with the members' children, the Seva Wing has been successful in comforting them physically and mentally.
