About the course

What will I learn

Babaji's offering emphasizes on the importance of service as a means to spiritual growth and inner transformation and encourages cultivating a spirit of selflessness, love, and devotion in all aspects of life. The practice would encourage reflecting on the deeper purpose of service, and how it can help one to overcome selfish tendencies and cultivate a deeper connection to the divine. The practice would also encourage integrating the spirit of service into all aspects of life, not just in specific service-oriented activities. It focused on the idea that service is not just about helping others, but also about offering one's actions as a form of devotion to the divine
