Maithreem Bhajatha

Most of you might have listened to this song starting with 'Maithreem Bhajatha' sung by MS Subbalakshmi. This phrase means 'Serve everyone with the feeling of Friendliness and Compassion'. We have seen Service done by some people with the sole intention of gaining name and fame. Some others are friendly and compassionate but do not do much service. Some others think donating to religious organizations means Service. Service to Humanity is Service to God. And that Service needs to be done with the feeling of Friendliness and Compassion. Not with pride or ego.

I selected this name for my blog to remind me always about this - that Service to Humanity needs to be done and that also with the feeling of Friendliness and Compassion.

Well said, If every one starts understanding this, world will become a better place to live.

Hope everyone of us set some reminder like this.

Exactly Sriram. It is not towards any particular God and so could be a generic prayer.
