“Seva” means “selfless service or service where there is no desire to get anything in return. So in service there is only giving and no question of taking. Even if somebody gives in return, the mental attitude should be not to take anything. This alone his service”
These are the invaluable words of Sri Sri Anandamurti, the spiritual guru, philosopher and founder of Ananda Marga.
Women’s Welfare Department was founded by him in May 1965 so that we, the daughters (dedicated monks) can especially help to uplift women in all the physical mental and spiritual spheres. We are addressed as”Didi’s” and we teach yoga, meditation, and also do social service, run projects that are found around the world.
Some examples are schools, children’s (orphanages), medical clinics, vocational training centers for women and young girls and many other activities.
The purpose of Seva Boutique is to raise funds to help those service projects in many countries that suffer financially.
