          Types, kinds of  Selfless Service (Seva)

2. Mind- Emotional

      Seva through the mental faculties (man) lies in contributing one's talents - creative, communicative, managerial, etc. - to the corporate welfare of the community and the planet in general. It also lies in sharing the pain of others. Response to the pain of others is a sine qua non of the membership of the brotherhood of man.

       Sharing soothing or comforting words is an act of sharing at the emotional mind level as an act of selfless service.  When some one is suffering an emotional loss, the act of  sharing positive emotions or even listening to the grief itself a great selfless service.
