Keeping in mind the above prayer of Chinmaya Mission , Pujya Amma started Hari Seva programme since the very beginning of the ashram. About ‘how Hari Seva started’ Amma used to say:
“When we sit to take food one or two old people from somewhere used to come over there and sit there looking at us. Without giving food to the hungry ones how we can eat.”
Thus Amma felt and started Hari Seva in the year 1982.. Slowly people from surrounding places came to know about the seva in the ashram and the number of old destitute started increasing.
