“Simple living, high thinking. People are more important than things.”
How often are these two ideals practiced in business, let alone our individual lives? After asking ourselves these questions, Seva Trading Company was born! Seva is a social enterprise that sells unique handmade products that reflect the art and spirit of India. We support fair trade businesses, charitable entities and rural artists by providing them a channel to market their products in the US.
Seva is the fruit of our inspiration to create a business where “the bottom line” is not the primary focus. Why not shift our energy towards showing how high ideals such as selfless service & kindness can lead to greater fulfillment? In that effort we have chosen to partner and work with charities and social businesses who are dedicated to uplifting their communities by providing employment and generating income for the disadvantaged.
Who We Are
We are a part of Ananda Sangha, a global spiritual community that has flourished in the US, Europe, and India, based on Paramhansa Yogananda’s teachings of Yoga and Meditation. Being a part of an intentional community, we get the opportunity to find new and creative ways to integrate spiritual ideals with the practical, everyday needs of our lives, which includes business. We have embarked on this new venture to expand and serve the greater community that we are all a part of.
