what is better for our spiritual progress – doing seva or doing sadhana?
Doing seva enhances this by improving our feelings of humbleness, surrender and dedication to Hari & Guru. It also gives us a different way of engaging our mind in devotional thoughts, since one may not be able to sit all day in meditation.
A sadhak should strike a balance between both sadhana and seva. One should not think that because they have a lot of seva to do that it is unnecessary for them to do sadhana; and one who enjoys doing sadhana can further enrich their spiritual development if they start doing some seva.

If someone says something bad about you, think to yourself, 'I am full of vices. Which fault do I not have? So if this person is pointing out one of my faults, why should I be upset?' Before God realization, everyone is full of faults. Then why get upset?
