What is meant by ‘seva’? You sometimes speak about it in your press releases.

‘Seva’ is a Sanskrit word meaning service. Sanskrit being the language of ancient yoga teachers, whose techniques have been adapted for modern life by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in The Art of Living courses.


One of the basic goals of the Art of Living is to provide a place where all people may come together for celebration and service (or ‘seva’), as an organisation which welcomes all as part of its peace-making initiatives. Even if we have very different cultures, languages, customs or religions, we may do some voluntary work together.
