Born in society, brought up in society, educated by society and deriving countless benefits from society, what are you doing for society? Social service should be regarded as an expression of gratitude to society for what it has done to us. Without society we cannot survive. Women should treat even their daily chores as a form of concentrated work. If they are unable to attend a satsang (spiritual congregation) on account of household duties, they should not feel miserable on that account. Discharge of duties at home is as sacred as attending a satsang. Only if you do your duties at home properly will you be able to render proper service outside. In whatever work you do at home, whether sweeping the floor or making chapatis (Indian flatbread), convert it into a form of spiritual exercise. Infuse every action with love of the Divine and dedicate it to God. (Divine Discourse, Mar 23, 1989)
