WHY TRANSFORMATIVE SEVA and POLITICS?
Public Service is Seva for our country. Voting is our right to influence the direction of our country and the way political seva is conducted. We must get our vote counted and voice heard! In our tradition, seva (service as awareness of self transformation) is a key expression of our spiritual practice (sadhana). We start our seva with a namaste where we recognize there is a Divine spark within each of us and salute the divinity within. Seva transforms our inner self. And externally, we express the spiritual transformation through ethics and values in our civic life, locally, nationally and in the presidential campaign.
TRANSFORMING SEVA VALUES INTO ACTION AT THE POLLS
We are the change we want to see! Be a part of SevaVotes – a nonpartisan effort to awaken and energize a new demographic of aware, ethical, mindful and pluralistic voters — igniting higher voter turnout among the million of Americans who practice transformative seva and honor the inner divinity within all. The whole world is one single family!
Service which is given without consideration of anything in return, at the right place and time to one that is qualified, with the feeling that it is one’s duty, is regarded as the nature of goodness. Bhagavad Gita 17.20 (smaller font)
