Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Kamban writes that as soon as Hanumãn entered Vibhishana's home, he realized that Vibhishana was a virtuous person. Kamban then explains, 'The atmosphere ('adhirvalaigal') in this home was very good.' Since Hanumãn was a Yogi, he could comprehend the thought waves in that home.
Therefore, wherever the chanting of Nãma is performed, wherever a japa is done, a wave is created. This is the reason that we say that it is peaceful, joyful in a place. What is so peaceful? The atmospheric wave here is very calm.
In a home where is there is always a quarrel, where people do not meet eye to eye on any matter, hate each other, are not united, the atmospheric waves are negative. When anyone visits the place, he feels restless and desires to get out of the place.

To collect people living around one's home and help them chant the Lord's Name is verily service to the Guru. Or to follow the special instruction given to him/her by the Guru is verily 'service' to the Guru.
