Region 5 - Narayana Seva at Bradford

"If you lift the hand to serve, to help, to console, to encourage another man, you are lifting it for God, for God is in every man" Sathya Sai Baba

Bradford Curry Project is a multi-faith, multi-cultural charity in which all major faiths of Bradford work together to serve those in need. The mission is to provide free meal service for the homeless, poor and underprivileged people of Bradford.

By Swami’s grace, Lidget Green Sai Center along with Halifax and Leeds have joined hands with this organisation to feed the homeless on the 4th Saturday of every month until the end of the year.

Lidget Green Sai Center is immensely grateful to have had the opportunity to carry out the service for the month of May. Volunteers donned their aprons on Saturday evening to wash, chop and cook vegetarian curry for a group of up to 80 people.

Inspired by the Newcastle Sai Center to find jobs for the homeless, we printed out job opportunities that are available in Bradford and placed it on the counters along with the list of things available in the area for free. As one of the members of the Curry Project staff mentioned that this is a new activity, we hope and pray that this will change the lives of homeless and underprivileged for the better and will prove to be a permanent solution for all their problems.

Our Master tells us,

“Do not believe that you can, by means of selfless service, reform or reshape the world. You may or may not. That does not matter. The real value of Seva (selfless service), its most visible result, is that it reforms YOU, reshapes YOU.”

The joy one gets while promoting another’s joy is incomparable and we come to realize that the true measure of our lives is not how much we have gained for ourselves, but how much we have given. We thank Swami to have given us this opportunity to be His instruments.
