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
By engaging in a regular practice of selfless service, one can develop a greater capacity for empathy, compassion, and altruism, which are all essential components of overall wellbeing. The practice of Seva Bhava can also be seen as a form of devotional service, or Bhakti Yoga, which can help to deepen one's spiritual practice and cultivate a closer relationship with the divine.
The practice will help in approaching service with the right attitude, and make one reflect on the impact of the service on oneself and others.
