The Siddha Yoga Practice of Seva – Selfless Service

Chanting group in Melbourne Ashram Hall

The practice of seva, selfless service, is one of the core Siddha Yoga practices. 


We can engage in the practice of 
seva by working in a spiritual environment at familiar activities, such as cooking, cleaning, or working at the computer. The key to this practice is the focus we maintain. Each activity is done while maintaining a connection to our own inner Self, aware that our work is an offering to God. As we offer our skills in this way, we can dissolve all that keeps us separate from the constant experience of divine love.

On the Siddha Yoga path, chanting is one of the core spiritual practices.

When you chant the names of God, or Sanskrit texts, you immerse your mind in sacred sound. While chanting, there comes a moment when the mind simply becomes completely absorbed in the power of the mantras. It is then that you experience the joy and beauty of your own Heart and you naturally attune to the frequency of love.


Chanting is one of the most direct ways of entering the sanctified place of the Heart. Chanting also prepares you for deeper meditation.
