A cordial relation

The only key for establishing a cordial relation is to do something for the others, knowing their needs.

Serve in silence and simplicity

We should do some service for which we don't get money, in silence and simplicity. This gives joy and liberates from the debts of one's individual karma.

The inclination to serve

Good Will is an attitude to have the inclination to serve at all times and to watch out for opportunities.

Service for the groups

The measure for service is: What have you done for the group? Natural groups form themselves around us, at home or at our work. We shouldn't define group in a too narrow manner.

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.

Mithila Classes

Mithila-group Olavarría

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.
