Get Involved


Seva (Selfless service) helps to unfold the latent divinity in us, put a ceiling on our desires, erase our karmic burden, experience the unity of all, awaken the awareness of God in all and helps us win the Grace of God. The Shaanti Bhavan Mandir provides numerous opportunities for Seva throughout the year, we encourage you to join us and experience altruism in motion.
