Service, service, service (Srila Sridhar Maharaj)

Excerpt from Inner fulfilment

Service to the Lord is not labour. It is a giver, a sustainer. It does not deplete vitality, but it sustains more and more. It is life-giving. 

Pure service is life-giving, not life-taking 
 not vitality-killing, but vitality-supplying. It is opposite in the eternal plane, especially in the Goloka area where everything is a labour for love. Without labour the residents of Goloka will think themselves to be fasting, and when engaged in labour they will think themselves to be well fed. Service is nourishing.

Therefore our attempt should not be so much for knowledge, for trying to know everything, but it should be directed towards how we can utilise ourselves in the highest function: Service, service, service.

Don’t be afraid that service is depleting energy. Service is life-giving. It is feeding you properly.
