Narayana  Seva

We serve a home cooked vegetarian meal at Austin Street Centre for the homeless near downtown on the first
Friday of the month. With Swami's grace we have been doing this since 1985. It is NOT charity...but "Narayan
Seva" service to God in the form of man. It is a spiritual practice to learn to share what God has given us. Its a
good opportunity for us to teach our children "by example" to be grateful for all we have been blessed with & to
instill the value of service from a young age.
