Karma-Yoga : Ch-4. Part-1.


What is Duty?


It is necessary in the study of Karma-Yoga to know what duty is.

If I have to do something I must first know that it is my duty, and then I can do it.

The idea of duty again is different in different nations.

The Mohammedan says what is written in his book, the Koran, is his duty;

the Hindu says what is in the Vedas is his duty;

and the Christian says what is in the Bible is his duty.

We find that there are varied ideas of duty, differing according to different states in life, different historical periods and different nations.
