CHAPTER VIII

THE IDEAL OF KARMA-YOGA

Part-10.

We can only play at driving the ball from one place to another.

We take away pain from the physical plane, and it goes to the mental one.

It is like that picture in Dante's hell where the misers were given a mass of gold to roll up a hill.

Every time they rolled it up a little, it again rolled down.

All our talks about the millennium are very nice as school-boys' stories, but they are no better than that.

All nations that dream of the millennium also think that, of all peoples in the world, they will have the best of it then for themselves.

This is the wonderfully unselfish idea of the millennium!
