Karma-Yoga : Ch-5. Part-17.
WE HELP OURSELVES, NOT THE WORLD :
Our duty is to sympathise with the weak and to love even the wrongdoer.
The world is a grand moral gymnasium wherein we have all to take exercise so as to become stronger and stronger spiritually.
Fourthly, we ought not to be fanatics of any kind, because fanaticism is opposed to love.
You hear fanatics glibly saying, "I do not hate the sinner.
I hate the sin," but I am prepared to go any distance to see the face of that man who can really make a distinction between the sin and the sinner.
It is easy to say so.
If we can distinguish well between quality and substance, we may become perfect men.
It is not easy to do this.
And further, the calmer we are and the less disturbed our nerves, the more shall we love and the better will our work be.
