Service and social action are topics near and dear to Ram Dass. At the behest of his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, Ram Dass spent much of his life in the service of others, whether working with the dying and the homeless, helping cure preventable blindness through the Seva Foundation, or simply providing guidance to all of us on our journeys of going from egos to souls. 

The Seva Book Bundle gives us some insight as to how we can begin on the path of servitude and explores some of its challenges, lessons, and rewards. 

Compassion in Action
Setting out on the Path of Service
Authors: Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush

Featuring an eye-catching new cover, this classic guide is for those ready to commit time and energy to relieving suffering in the world. No two people are better qualified to help us along this path than Ram Dass, who has spent more than 25 years teaching and writing on the subject of living consciously, and Mirabi Bush, who succeeded him as chairperson of the Seva Foundation.

This book can make an extraordinary difference in the way we see one another, ourselves, and the vast amount of suffering in the world. Here is a guide for those who are just beginning to realize that self-fulfillment is possible through service to others. No two people are better qualified to help us along this path than Ram Dass, who has spent more than twenty years teaching and writing on the subject of living consciously, and Mirabai Bush, who succeeded him as chairperson of the Seva Foundation, an international organization devoted to compassionate service. The first part of the book is Ram Dass's spiritual autobiography, in which he reflects on the lessons of his own life and addresses two vital questions: "What in us responds to the needs of others?" and "What can we actually do to alleviate suffering?" Mirabai Bush then counsels readers on how to identify their most useful talents, gives direction for finding opportunities to serve in the community, and offers very practical suggestions on how to get started. What we have to give is who we are. We need to grow in awareness and insight if we wish to become more effective instruments for change. In this book of heartfelt encouragement and advice, Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush demonstrate the interdependence of social and spiritual development, reawakening in us the memory of true citizenship--a vital force in the conscious relief of pain and suffering. As His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has said, "Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive."

How Can I Help?
Stories and Refelctions on Service
Authors: Ram Dass & Paul Gorman

Not a day goes by without our being called upon to help one another–at home, at work, on the street, on the phone. . . . We do what we can. Yet so much comes up to complicate this natural response: "Will I have what it takes?" "How much is enough?" "How can I deal with suffering?" "And what really helps, anyway?"

In this practical helper’s companion, the authors explore a path through these confusions, and provide support and inspiration fo us in our efforts as members of the helping professions, as volunteers, as community activists, or simply as friends and family trying to meet each other’s needs. Here too are deeply moving personal accounts: A housewife brings zoo animals to lift the spirits of nursing home residents; a nun tends the wounded on the first night of the Nicaraguan revolution; a police officer talks a desperate father out of leaping from a roof with his child; a nurse allows an infant to spend its last moments of life in her arms rather than on a hospital machine. From many such stories and the authors’ reflections, we can find strength, clarity, and wisdom for those times when we are called on to care for one another. How Can I Help? reminds us just how much we have to give and how doing so can lead to some of the most joyous moments of our lives.
