Prayer is the power of life and transforms oneself and the society around us. In Rashtra sevika samiti, we (all the sevikas) pray to the Motherland, the all powerful Goddess, to give us the strength to work together for the prosperity of the entire world. Strength can be effective only if it is enhanced by character, chastity, purity and selfless sacrifice. Further we need to walk the path of Dharma using unity, ability, purity, and bravery as the instruments/qualities and thus become vibrant mothers of the promising future generations that will serve Bharath matha and take her to the glory of prosperity. This can be attained through regular shakha.
