CHAPTER VIII

THE IDEAL OF KARMA-YOGA

Part-8.

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?
