service

A Quote by Jesus of Nazareth on self-mastery, life work, help, true potential, real self, knowledge, and service

This knowledge would be of vlaue to me in my ministry.  The more I knew about my fellowman, the better I could understand and help him.  This was my mission in life: to help each man and woman know his real self and how to express his true potential.  This journey had helped me realize how much work there was for me to do and how much I had to learn myself before I could proceed with my life work.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on work, labor, purpose, meaning, and service

The work of a person laboring in some humble occupation is no less relevant to the well-being of society than that of, for example, a doctor, a teacher, a monk, or a nun. All human endeavor is potentially great and noble. So long as we carry out our work with good motivation, thinking, “My work is for others,” it will be of benefit to the wider community. But when concern for others’ feelings and welfare is missing, our activities tend to become spoiled. Through lack of basic human feeling, religion, politics, economics, and so on can be rendered dirty. Instead of serving humanity, they become agents of destruction.

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on profit, business, purpose, service, excellence, and creativity

When each of these three elements of vision--concern for excellence, for people and for the wider environment--are present, business is transformed from a tool for making profits into a creative, humane experiment for improving life.

Sir John Templeton: "My ethical principle in the first place was: 'Where could I use my talents that God gave me to help the most people?'"

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on meditation, service, karma, self realization, bhagavad gita, yogananda, and nirvikalpa

The inactive man does not do his duty to his Creator or to the society that maintains him.  The recluse who devotes his entire life to sincere effort in meditation fulfills part of his duty by trying to find and love God, and thus,spiritualize his own life.  To improve oneself is to help society by the example of virtue and by making at least one of its members good!  

But the yogi (monastic or householder) who does his duty to God, and also to the world through some form of uplifting service, is the most highly evolved type of being.  He becomes a master (asiddha) when by such dutiful action he attains the supreme inactive state (nirvikalpa God-union), which is free from karmic effects of actions and is filled with the bliss of Spirit.

A Quote by Sakyong Mipham on regret, service, and intention

It is said that if our intention is to help others--even if we are unable to follow it through--we will never have any regret. Regret is a result of trying to make "me" happy.
