Seva with your Body & Mind
Dear friends of Ishwar and ISHA,
Thanks for checking out the Seva page. We are going to do our best to make it so everyone who wants to help can help with whatever skills and abilities they have to offer. In the meantime, on this page we will regularly post current needs. If you can help… Great! If not, please check back every now and then.
We could use help with:
SEVA: Meeting Hall/Dome construction
In the summer and fall of 2017, ISHA will need volunteers to work on the ISHA Meeting Hall construction project in Bruce, Wisconsin.
The first phase of work, scheduled for June or July, will involve excavating the basement and foundation, building the concrete forms, and installing the rebar. This will be strenuous construction work, and should only be attempted by physically fit volunteers. No experience is necessary, but practical knowledge of basic construction techniques will be useful. Sevadars with experience in construction will be on site to provide training and supervision.
It will be the responsibility of the volunteers to make their own travel arrangements to Bruce. Workers will be provided with construction safety equipment, such as safety glasses, hard hats, respirators, and work gloves. Workers are encouraged to bring their own steel-toed work boots, or to purchase them in a local Wisconsin store. We hope to be able to provide food and lodging to all volunteers.
If you will be flying, the nearest large airport is in Minneapolis, MN (msp). From the airport, the drive to Bruce takes about 2.5 hours.
If you would like to volunteer to work on Ishwar’s tribute to Great Master, please contact Paul Bauer at firstname.lastname@example.org.

SEVA: Proofreading (Location: Anywhere in the world)
Right now we are in the process of transcribing Ishwar’s YouTube videos so His words can be more accessible to others. The transcripts will be provided for free on this website and used for closed captioning of the YouTube videos. Also, the transcripts are what foreign language translators use as the basis for translations. And so we need help reviewing the excellent work that our transcribers are doing. If you have strong proofreading skills and are interested in helping or if you would like to learn more, please fill out the form below.
SEVA: Translating (Location: Anywhere in the world)
We are in the process of translating Ishwar’s YouTube videos and his written works so His words will reach even more people across the globe. The translations will be provided for free on this website and may be used with permission on foreign websites. So, if you are literate in English and a second language and are interested in helping or if you would like to learn more, please fill out the form below.
SEVA: Web Design (Location: Anywhere in the world)
