"NON-ATTACHMENT IS COMPLETE SELF-ABNEGATION"


Part : 5.



The second point to consider is, what is the end of work?

We find the vast majority of people in every country believing that there will be a time when this world  will become perfect, when there will be no disease, nor death, nor unhappiness, nor wickedness.

That is a very good idea, a very good motive power to inspire and uplift the ignorant; but if we think for a moment, we shall find on the very face of it that it cannot be so.

How can it be, seeing that good and evil are the obverse and reverse of the same coin?

How can you have good without evil at the same time?

What is meant by perfection?

A perfect life is a contradiction in terms.
