Transformation through social service. Seva is not mere compassion or charity towards another; it is no less than worship of the Loard. Nar-seva is Narayan-Seva. This is the refrain of all our saints and philosophers. Harmony and creativity spring from the approach of Seva. Persons in distress and communities which have remained backward need love and compassion rather than mere charity. Distortions like untouchability are more likley to be removed through harmony and love than rhrough confrontation.
