Sewa, also Seva, is short for the word Kar Seva, which is derived from the Sanskrit words kar, meaning hands or work, and seva, meaning service. In Punjabi, the word seva also means "to worship, to adore, to pay homage through the act of love." In the writings of Sikh gurus, these two meanings of seva (service and worship) have been merged. Seva is expected to be a labour of love performed without desire and intention, and with humility.Kar seva is often translated as "voluntary labour."
