Inspirational Note ...
In 2017 a Satsang held in the divine presence in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. When asked about serving animals,

Here is what Swami said:

Serving animals is Seva. Selflessly serving anyone is Seva – it makes no difference. Animals are also part of the whole of Creation, and as divine as yourself. Therefore, serving anyone is Seva. In fact, animal Seva is a great service. The poor creatures do not even have the faculties that you have – they cannot speak or express themselves. When they are in pain, they cannot even tell you. Serving animals is a great Seva.

Animals are very dear to Swami, because they are so pure, so kind and so satisfied with their lives. They do not have any greed. Even a lion which has had its meal will not kill another animal the same day; it will think about its food on the following day. Even the most ferocious ones are also kind, satisfied and contented with their lives. Man is the only animal who is never content with what he has. It is important that you do Seva for animals. If you find satisfaction in doing so then, by all means, do so.

Bay Area Seva
Manicure Seva for Bhagawan ’s Daughters
A day in the life of a homeless person is not easy. For a woman, the struggles are only exponential. It could be with security on the street or taking care of herself, there are many things a woman faces that only other women can understand. That is why a group of sisters in the Bay Area came together to do a special Seva for the women in an encampment area where the volunteers have been serving breakfast every day. 

Bhagawan has often said that He wants everyone to ‘Be Happy’. The sisters wanted to do something that would inspire the homeless ladies to ‘Be Happy’, irrespective of the situation they are in and the challenges they have to face day in and day out. They wanted the women on the streets to know that there are people out there who care for them, and they can reach out to.
