Definition - What does Sevite mean?

Sevite is derived from the Sanskrit word seva, which means “service,” “worship,” or “process of devotional service.” Sevites are servants; they are individuals who perform seva as part of their spiritual yoga practice. Sevites practice Siddha yoga, where acts of service are a form of worship presented to a god or guru as an expression of devotion and humility.

Yogapedia explains Sevite

Within Siddha yoga, practitioners participate in seva by volunteering at an ashram or meditation center with the goal of serving humbly without recognition or personal achievement in mind. Some individuals that practice Siddha yoga may even choose to voluntarily participate in the giving of finances.
