Ishan teaches that the greatest selfless service is one that is done to satiate a needy person’s appetite.
The endeavours of food distribution drives in Shiv Yog, has now assumed the proportions of a movement with seekers around the world getting inspired to alleviate hunger as a beautiful and positive chain reaction.
The seeds of this movement were sown by His Holiness Avdhoot Shivanand and Guru Ma three decades back in Rajasthan when the consort of the Master as a humble servant of the Almighty, under the guidance of the Master used to prepare food herself for hundreds of children and the needy from villages in hinterland Rajasthan.
As the number of people increased, they had to hire cooks to continue this act. Since then, they have never looked back when it comes to feeding people and today, lakhs of people all around the world are fed through various Shiv Yog events, bhandara seva, treats, etc.
Seekers who approach Shiv Yog ashrams with donations in land and money are encouraged to rather lend their helping hand in a direct way. Ishan ji often guides them to use that money or sell the land for preparing resources for distribution of free meals to the hungry. Interestingly, Ishan ji also says that if those who have money and land for feeding the hungry are successful in giving food directly to the beneficiaries, the contributions offered by them reaches him through love and blessings.
