Karma-Yoga : Ch-8. Part-8.
THE IDEAL OF KARMA-YOGA
Now comes the next question : -
What is this work?
What is this doing good to the world?
Can we do good to the world?
In an absolute sense, no; in a relative sense, yes.
No permanent or everlasting good can be done to the world;
if it could be done, the world would not be this world.
We may satisfy the hunger of a man for five minutes, but he will be hungry again.
Every pleasure with which we supply a man may be seen to be momentary.
No one can permanently cure this ever-recurring fever of pleasure and pain.
Can any permanent happiness be given to the world?
