Category: Yogi Bhajan quotes on Seva

You will never find a community leader who doesn’t know how to give—Seva. Giving is the only way. Don’t give only to those who ask. Give to those who don’t ask. Keep on giving. Become a giver. Your faculty and God’s faculty will become the same. That’s absolute divinity.

–Yogi Bhajan, 9/4/01

You should be so conscious and so giving that people get tired of your hospitality. Giving is habit, character, consciousness, and self-projection.

–Yogi Bhajan, 9/4/01

How many people have you broken bread with out of joy? How many times have you had the guts to sit down with someone and share from one plate? We talk about God, divinity, yoga and all the yak, yak, yak… What have you learned? How many people have you hugged, how many children have you played with?

–Yogi Bhajan, 9/4/01

We have to become reservoirs of energy. Our words, our sight, our presence should be in a position to change the frequency of a person who needs the jump-start. Do it with words, with touch, with sight and with prayer. It doesn’t matter what condition you are in. But it does matter how precise and clear you are to lift up the other person.

–Yogi Bhajan, 6/22/01

You are here to serve, here to lift, here to grace, here to give hope and action, to give the very deep love of your soul to all those who are in need.

–Yogi Bhajan, 4/10/98

Touch a person, hold a person and then carry a person. You can’t drag anybody. You can’t lean on anybody. Carry them, simply and truthfully. And what are the words that dignify the carrying? Can you repeat after me? “I am with you.” That’s all. One line, “I am with you.”

–Yogi Bhajan, 12/20/97

Your normal process of life is to not give; not giving yourself a chance, not giving to others. You do not believe in creating a vacuum. When there is a vacuum, God must fill it.

–Yogi Bhajan, 6/21/96

If you choose that you should be totally balanced and you will only adopt the policy of God, which is to give, give, give, you will never get tired of giving. That carefree Lord moves like the wind, like a breeze in the morning, touching and kissing everybody, hugging, laughing and smiling through the angelic nature. If you become that kind of giver, you will become God.

–Yogi Bhajan, 10/22/94

If you can learn to raise your Kundalini by yourself, as I did, then your presence will work. Your psyche will change. Then you can help the world to change. You can help friends, relatives, unhappy people to change because you have some extra strength to share. This is the Age of Aquarius. Everybody will find happiness within themselves. Then we can share ourselves with others. We won’t have to speak. You are sharing me, I am sharing you.

–Yogi Bhajan, Aquarian Times, 07-10-1994

Seva and simran are the two legs on which God walks. If you have come here, do seva. Do the Karma Yoga. Do it with your hands, and your mind, and your soul, and your money. Do it with your Self and your Self will be exalted.
