Manav Sewa Dal
Society has always been benefited and uplifted by generous and compassionate individuals who give freely of their time, skills and resources to help those in need. Such services are made possible and practical only by the availability and willingness of volunteers who are motivated simply by natural human kindness and empathy with others less fortunate than themselves. The potential of this positive side of human nature is readily apparent when disaster strikes and people set aside their normal prejudices and attitudes and rally to help the victims. Such a sympathetic reaction is spontaneous and indicates that the potential for service without any selfish motives is inherent in all human beings.
Meditation is a key for unlocking and unfolding one's positive potential. When a person meditates, s/he becomes more sensitive to the needs and sufferings of others and a natural desire to serve develops. The further one progresses on the spiritual path, the greater his or her desire to serve becomes. Selfless action, in turn, accelerates spiritual evolution. The cornerstone of Christ's teachings was compassionate service to others. Serve man and you serve God.
The sole responsibility of the volunteer is to serve other living beings. This has always been the key inspiration for them to keep on progressing along the spiritual path. A well-organized and united group of volunteers can accomplish a great deal. To be a real servant is no easy task for the average person, as the first and foremost quality of the volunteer is selflessness.
There has been no period in history when human civilization was free from the brutality, injustice and conflicts which retard development. There have been, though, a number of voluntary organisations all over the world playing a stabilising, alleviating and developmental role.
One of the great humanitarians of the present time, Shri Satpal Maharaj, is famous all over the world for his inspiring example in the spiritual and social fields as he spreads the message of "Manav Dharam". He lives to serve others, irrespective of caste, colour, creed or religion, in any capacity that he can.
A few decades back, Shri Satpal Maharaj realised the need to mobilise and coordinate volunteers so that they could best serve others. In 1976, he put his ideas into practice and formed "Manav Sewa Dal" as the service wing of Manav Utthan Sewa Samiti. In 1985, "Manav Sewa Dal" became a registered and recognized social welfare organization.
