Selfless service may not only bring you to the foot of that mystical mountain whose summit is Self-realization, but it may enable you to climb far on the path. Finally, it may bring you in contact with a Perfect Master and cause you to surrender to him.
True Karma (Service) means the rendering of service to others without any thought of gain or reward, and also without the least intention of putting others under an obligation.
Never think that by helping another you have put him under any obligation to you. On the contrary, believe that the recipient of your generosity gives you an opportunity to serve yourself.
