If one makes mental affirmations about serving and puts them into practice, then one is able to anchor on the path of service. Summarizing sublime teachings from the Bhagavad Gita, His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda gives three sets of affirmations that are beautifully simple but can render the server free from the pangs of suffering. Ultimately this discourse is about setting ourselves free from the desire of expecting service in return. On the path of service, the server does not want their service to be reciprocated and this is the key to freedom. How the affirmations bring about this freedom is explored.
