Seva Bharati annual training camp concludes in Chennai



Seva Bharati annual training camp concluded with an impressive public function held at Korattur Vivekananda Vidyalaya, Chennai on 26th May 2014.  The trainees demonstrated various physical activities like Yoga, Kollattam, bhajans, games, vyayam etc. 

 Smt. Jayalakshmi, Sri Sai Sundar, Sri H S Govinda, and Sri 
Durai Shankar
 .
Sri Sai Sundar, an industrialist presided over the function.  In his address he emphasized on the collective strength which is bigger than the individual strength.   





Sri Govinda HS, Kshetra Pracharak Pramuk gave emphasis on the seva attitude and why a healthy society is required? He explained what constitutes a seva, namely the extra consideration that a person has towards helping others, does not necessarily mean sacrificing everything that one has. Seva should not be driven by pity but should be viewed as a duty instead. When it is viewed so, Seva is natural, the duty will not be a burden. He explained this using the analogy of eating food. When we have a problem in some part of our body, we don’t eat to obliterate the pain in that part but to help the body as a whole. Similarly, we must do seva in the hope that it will target the deprived parts of the society as well. 

Around 74 trainees attended the camp. Sri Durai Shankar, Pranth Seva Secretary in the chair.  Smt Jayalakshmi, Secretary welcomed the gathering and Smt. Prema Mohan delivered a vote of thanks.
