Joy of Living

Seva means ‘selfless service’. It is a way to open your heart and connect with the Divine in every moment. When service is done with love, the focus moves away from what you get and shifts toward the pure joy of giving.

By serving the needs of others, expectations melt away and all that remains is love. That’s living bhakti.


Do you want to dive deeper into the Home of the Divine Mother and ashram life at Shree Peetha Nilaya? The Bhakti Seva Program gives you a unique opportunity to experience selfless service. Along with daily prayers and bhakti rituals, living in this spiritual community will help you open your heart and change your everyday life into one of loving and caring service to others.  

Day Visitors

Even if you are just visiting for the day, you are encouraged to engage with seva for 1-2 hours. You don’t need to apply for a seva program, just ask at the Seva Coordination Desk, located next to the Registration desk.

Overnight Guests

All guests are welcome to contribute 3-4 hours of seva during each day of their stay. It is part of the heart-opening experience of being here. Please check in with our Seva Coordinator at the Registration Desk for your assignment.
