Social Service Activities
“Think in what ways the group can do service in society.”
The Purpose of Social Service
The WTT strongly emphasises upon service activities together with spiritual practice. Spiritual practices devoid of social welfare have no place in society. Service gets you out of your own system into the greater system; it is the bridge to link up to the higher awareness.
The social service activities presented here are compiled from the Annual Report of the Western groups of the WTT; they might be taken as proposals to commit oneself to service.

Help with Donations
Children of the Mithila school group of Olavarría, Argentina, delivering gifts to Caritas.
Some groups provide practical teachings to groups of children and teenagers as Sunday classes based on the spiritual teachings given in the name of Mithila. The children in the Mithila-group of Olavarría for example practice meditation and singing mantrams, accompanied by musical instruments. The kids learn to develop contact with nature and do vegetable gardening. They do puppets workshops, art workshops, games, tales, music and songs.
The teaching intends that the children learn with love and joy and experiment themselves all that is learned; that they understand that they are souls and have a personality that allows them to function in the world.
The children actively participate and collaborate with their parents in preparing items which are delivered as help to the different places.

Consultation and Therapy
The book “Mithila” offers support for people who wish to save the children from the bad influences of our society. This book contains wisdom systematised, to find alignment that enables self-realisation.
Service is the way, the Path to liberation from limitations. Those who know, settle for life “in service”.
All is business today. The principle of business has grown beyond proportion. It engulfs every conceivable human activity. The book emphasises the need to manage business with restraint and with a social objective. Thus, business can be a source of social support.
