"Service is the best form of worship, the highest spiritual discipline, the essence of devotion. The bliss you receive through service cannot be gotten through any other activity. Service is more fruitful than repetition of the Name, meditation, or sacrifice. There is no morality higher than truth, no prayer more fruitful than service. When you offer a meal to a hungry child, or a blanket to a shivering brother on the pavement, you are placing a gift of God into the hand of another gift of God." - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Bridgewater Sai Center organizes selfless service activities in line with Sathya Sai Baba's saying: "Hands that serve are holier than lips that pray". Members perform these activities without expecting any monetary or non-monetary rewards in return.

Some of the regular activities we perform include providing cooked and canned food to shelters, cooking and serving in soup kitchens, helping the old people, Christmas toy drive, food serving, adhoc seva opportunities etc.

We provide Mexican rice and water bottles every week to the Somerville Homeless Interim Program (SHIP). Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are also distributed. The food is cooked at members' home and they bring it to the center on Sundays. It is delivered on Monday morning.

If you would like to bring Mexican rice, the recipe is available here. Occasionally, we provide pasta, juice pouches or sandwiches; recipe and details are available here. We also have a collection of other recipes for Narayana Seva and other events.

We need volunteers to donate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Sign-up sheet is available at the center information desk during regular weekly program. Please sign-up during your next visit.

Some service activities planned for near future:
  • Cooking and serving in soup kitchens
  • Performance by center children at senior citizen homes
  • Donation of food to food bank. Help organize the shelves
  • Reading of books and recording them on tape at the School for the blind
  • Knitting clothes for patients in hospitals
  • Christmas toy drive

If as a member, you would like to know more about the service activities or you would like to take part in them, kindly email the service coordinator at We are always looking for opportunities to serve. So members are requested to contact the service coordinator if they come across any service opportunity.
