Sai Baba says selfless service is the highest first level in the hierarchy of spiritual path. In 1979 in a summer course on Spirituality , Sai Baba said, “Selfless service is the best means of attaining spiritual progress than other means such as meditation, bhajan and yoga. This is so because when we undertake meditation, Japa (repetition of the name of God), or yoga, we do so exclusively for our own benefit and not for the good of others. These are aimed at fulfilling one’s individual desires and securing happiness for oneself. However, we should aspire for the attainment of the good of others without any desire for personal gain”.
