Quoted Text
"Seva" is a Sanskrit word meaning selfless service.  Seva is doing good work, helping others, without attachment, and without any desire for personal gain.  Performing Seva on a regular basis is one way for us to become more aware of our connection with the divine.  Just one small act of Seva a day can bring about tremendous spiritual growth.

A swami (Sanskrit: स्वामी Svāmi [sʋáːmi]) sometimes abbreviated "Sw." is an ascetic or yogi who has been initiated into the religious monastic order founded by Adi Sankara,[1][2] or to a religious teacher.[3]
