Community Service

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  Mother Teresa
On the 21st of May, more than 100 students from Lhomon Education, Jigme Namgyel Engineering College and staff of Samdrup Jongkhar Initiative took part in collecting pebbles at Rekhey community.
The volunteer service started with the recitation of karma yoga prayer. The Karma Yoga is a practice to apply the supreme methods for refining our intentions and motivations to carry out any service selflessly for the greater benefit of all sentient beings. The volunteer group was briefed to perform the task as sincerely as possible with right mindset to accumulate merit and positive energy. The volunteer service has been a very much part of LME students to inculcate a sense of responsibility for the community and also to practice selflessness through karma yoga. It is also to provide oppourtunity for students to take up leadership role and to inspire other people that an individual can make a responsible difference in our community.

It was a tiring, yet satisfactory and fulfilling day in the service of our community.
