The Master and the Sevak
Every Avatar has got His own Mission
and Vision, which is never for His own benefit. GOD comes to the
world for the benefit of the mankind. He is the Ultimate Supreme.
He Himself is Everything (the gain, the loss, the bliss, the
We are very
fortunate that we are all living in the same period when GOD has
come in human form. He has a Mission and it is “Dharma
Samsthapana. God in this present advent is trying to teach
the mankind that every living creature is a part of Divinity and
that we should love every body and serve everybody. He himself is
leading us in this Mission of Love by personal example. He is
showing us the way, to go about in this great Divine adventure. He
is our Master and we are all his Servants or Sevaks.
have a wrong notion that Swami wants us only to undertake service
activities. Swami is also teaching us that the service activities
had to be undertaken with a Divine feeling and that the sevaks’
efforts should be backed up with spiritual activities too. While
Swami is not preaching any specific religious activities, He
expects us to be true to our own religious principles while
adhering to the spiritual values.
We shall now
try to know the implications of calling ourselves as sevaks of the
Great Master. Sevaks can be classified as three different types.
The sevak who
waits for the Master’s command and then fulfill the same.
- One who does not act to the
best of his ability with a commitment, even if his Master
- The one who understands the
mind of the Master, anticipating the requirements, and then
takes the initiative to commit himself. (Swami uses the word
“Ingitham” which means ‘the thinking of the Lord’)
The sevak does not wait for instructions from the Master.
It is the third
category to which we should strive to quality. We all know the
Mission and Vision of our Master. We need not wait for HIM to say
what we should do.
A perfect sevak
in the organization, from the top level to the Seva dal level
should be aware of Swami’s Mission, and Swami’s line of thinking.
When Swami encourages somebody to carry on with some spiritual
assignments, the real sevak will understand the implications. Such
sevaks will understand the mind of the Master. “My life is My
Message”. The real sevak will then follow the cue and encourage
such activities by 100% commitments.
does not impose anything against the will of His devotees. Swami
does not even reprimand anybody who acts against the His wishes.
Swami just smiles off, and waits for the devotee to correct
Himself in course of time. If the Sevak does not tune himself to
the thinking of Swami, then it would a pitiable case who misses
the great opportunity made available to him.
As it has been
mentioned in the earlier paragraphs, our SWAMI is a loving,
compassionate Master. He grants all our wishes. Anybody who go
to him with a wish, it will be granted and fulfilled by our
SWAMI. He always says, I do not know to say “NO” for anything.
As a perfect sevak, we should be careful while asking any wishes
from SWAMI. We should not impose anything on SWAMI that can
deviate from the code of conduct. Why should we ask anything to
SWAMI? He knows very well what to be given, and when to be given.
Let us qualify ourselves to be part and parcel of Swami’s Mission
and Vision. Like it has been said in Gita, “you do your duty. Do
not be bothered about the results. That will be taken care by
realize the great opportunity provided by Swami. We should not
deviate from the codes prescribed by him. He is leading us with
His own example. He is showing us what to do and what not to do.
He is very loving and caring for us. We should not try to impose
our own way of thinking. We should be very careful and be loyal to
him in spreading his message of Love though Service to the
humanity, backed up with spiritual practices.
