The Essence of Dharma-2.


09/03/2017.

(Spoken on February 11th, 1973)


The duty of man depends upon the aim of life.

Whatever we are supposed to do in our life is directed by the purpose for which we are existing.

Aimless activity is unthinkable.

All our efforts, professions and works are somehow or other directed toward the achievement of an end, a goal or a purpose.

Unless we are conscious and clear about the aim of our life, it would be difficult for us to determine the nature of our duties in life.

In India especially, ethics are based on metaphysics.

The conduct of life is rooted in the concept of existence.
