Seva: Noteworthy Blogs and Sites

Here are some blogs and sites that discuss seva in its various forms. Whether capturing these images through photography, discussion of health and human rights issues, documenting abuses against humanity, making a film on post-9/11 discrimination, fighting for justice, or assisting in the rebuilding of communities -- we are each motivated in our own way to continue the Guru's teachings of seva. These blogs are one example of documenting this continued movement of seva.

This list only briefly touches upon seva in our community, so please let me know if you come across any others of interest, and i will add them to this post.

ਇਤੁ ਤਨਿ ਲਾਗੈ ਬਾਣੀਆ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਸੇਵ ਕਮਾਣੀਆ

"It tan laagai baanee-aa, sukh hovai sayv kamaanee-aa"

"This body is softened with the Word of the Guru's Bani, you shall find peace, doing seva (selfless service)."

- Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Page 25.
