How to contribute

SSRF is run by volunteers who have the common aim of serving God and society as a part of their collective spiritual practice. Since SSRF started this website, we have been asked by a number of people how they, too, can contribute to the SSRF mission.

The best way to serve God is through the spread of Spirituality and awakening society to its importance.

To derive the most benefit from Service unto the Absolute Truth (satsēvā), it is best done on a strong base of individual spiritual practice. Hence, the best way you can start contributing is to start spiritual practice yourself. SSRF has provided a recommended spiritual practice that you can begin or incorporate into your existing spiritual routine. By experiencing the benefits of spiritual practice first hand and telling others about it, we can better serve the spread of Spirituality.

The following are various things you can do to contribute to SSRF and the spread of Spirituality based on some common attributes.
