Service to Man is Service to God!!
Swami Vivekananda right said " If God can be worshiped in an image, can He not be worshipped in a living person? "Swami Vivekananda transformed relief and rehabilitation of the poor into an act of worship. God dwells in our hearts and each living being is the microcosm of the Almighty. Hence, loving his creation is akin to loving the almighty himself. We all want to live a life filled with comforts and luxury. What we fail to notice is that there are many people around the world dying of hunger and thirst. We complain to our parents if we don't get new clothes in the latest fashion or gizmos of our choice. It is only when we see the plight and hardships of the poor and destitute that we realize how blessed we are. In India, around 30% of the population is below the poverty line. India faces numerous issues such as the rise in the urban poor farmers committing suicide, old people being abandoned, child labor, illiteracy, etc.
It is our duty to help and give back to society once we have reached up in life. This can be done through volunteering for help in NGOs or donating a portion of our wealth to charitable organizations that look after the poor and the destitute. Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft and one of the richest men in the world, donates 40% of his wealth to charitable causes through his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The Tata group of companies is an excellent example of an institution that has given back to society in multiple ways right from the time of its inception. We need to understand that the joy of recieving.
Mother Teresa worked tirelessly throughout her life to care for the sick and dying without expecting anything in return. There are so many people in the dire need of help if we look around us. Today, man has become so selfish that he lives only for himself. Such a person, though he lives a long life, is soon forgotten by everyone. It is our good deeds to mankind that remain illuminated even after our death. If we all do so, the world will become such an infinitely better place to live in.
