Sikhaid International is a humanitarian organisation run by volunteers and guided by fundamental principles of sikhism, one of which is seva – service rendered to humanity.
Seva is, for a sikh, an important ideal. Although the word Seva means ‘to serve,’ it has a deeper meaning in that the service offered is a form of worship and no worship is conceivable without Seva.
Voluntary Seva is a personal commitment, and seeks neither monetary reward, nor a shortcut to spiritual salvaiton. The Sikh Guru’s gave another more powerful purpose underlying the idea of Seva. In traditional indian society work involving capital labour was considered low and for the humblest caste. By sanctifying it as an honourable religious practice, Sikh gurus established the dignity of labour. By understanding the Guru’s message a Sikh serves selflessly, and becomes aware of his very soul and the ultimate truth within and he sees the same spirit within all existence. Through selfless seva he becomes ego less, and his consciousness merges in union with God, thus becoming Universal.
