The Vedas lay down four goals before man : Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. But they have to be pursued in pairs, Dharma and Artha together and Kama and Moksha together. That is to say, wealth (artha) has to be earned through righteous (dharma) means, and desire (kama) has to be surrendered for liberation (moksha). But man takes these four separately and loses all. He puts them into separate compartments and adopts distinct plans to achieve them. He gives up dharma and moksha as beyond him and wastes his life pursuing only artha and kama. They lead him to ruin.
