The Seva Foundation started as a small group with a big idea, and the idea was this: To be fully human, we must translate our compassion and concern into useful service. That simple statement conveys something about the nature of compassion that is expressed in most spiritual traditions around the world — that compassion is not just about helping those less fortunate than ourselves. It’s about the realization that we are all connected as one human family. That sense of compassionate service motivates all of Seva’s work, as they build programs that support people around the world in their efforts to build healthy communities. Seva’s programs, spanning many cultures and countries, share certain fundamental principles. www.seva.org
