Lifelights is part of the Service in Satchidananda (SIS) network of people around the world who have felt their lives enriched, inspired, and changed for the better by the teachings and service of one of the greatest peacemakers and humanitarians in the world, Sri Swami Satchidananda.
We invite you to join this network by anonymously offering actions or services to anyone on the 22nd of each month (in honor of the birthday of Swami Satchidananda) or any day! It’s a way to give back something to our communities and the world, at the same time expressing our gratitude to our teacher, who has inspired and enriched our lives beyond measure.
How can you be part of Lifelights ?
There are only four requirements:
1. The act brings some benefit to someone
2. The act brings no harm to anyone
3. The service is done anonymously
4. The service is offered in the name of Sri Swami Satchidananda as a loving tribute.
We can offer all kinds of anonymous acts of kindness and service. Some examples: offer free Yoga classes to the underserved in your community, drop off food to someone in need, leave a special note or do something nice for a friend, or anything you’re inspired to do to brighten someone’s day and to be of service.
If you would like, with your gift or service, you may leave a card. These special cards are available—at no charge. The card explains to the recipient that they have just received an anonymous act of kindness inspired by Service in Satchidananda (SIS)— the charitable service arm of the Integral Yoga organization reflecting Swami Satchidananda’s teachings of selfless love and service. It is our hope that Lifelights will inspire people to think of and perform acts of kindness throughout the month, whether they utilize the cards or not!
If you are an Integral Yogi who is doing seva in your community, please email us and share the info so we can include you in the SIS network.
Please spread love and light by joining SIS’s Lifelights Network and offering random acts of kindness and service where you live and beyond!
To obtain 10 copies of the cards, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope (2 stamps) to:
