Of course, all the satsangs I do for Art of Living projects and centers all over the world are done as seva, which means I do not charge a penny for them. This has helped my colleagues fundraise for several projects and rural schools, and I am proud that my singing has been able to provide not just spiritual solace but also material comfort to underprivileged communities in every part of the world. My professional, paid programs are coordinated by my manager and dear friend Ajay Kadam, whereas my seva activities are set up by the various Art of Living apex bodies and teacher coordinators.
The other benefit for me has been that when I do a few such professional, paid programs, it leaves me with at least twenty days a month to do seva — teaching, travelling, coordinating rural development activities — without which life seems incomplete. What better blessings than to make a living doing what I love most, and spending a fair bit of quality time pursuing issues that I am passionate about! Such is the grace of the Master!
