Human Activity must be judged on the merits of its Intention and Consequence

Human nature has to be chastened, controlled and guided along certain channels; otherwise, like the flooded Ganga, it will bring disaster to millions who rest in security, believing it to be harmless.  The eagerness to secure an immediate advantage has to be curbed, the slower advantage may be more lasting and more healthy.  Benefits to the individual have to be given up in favour of benefits to the group, the village, the community, the country or the whole of mankind.  Ideas, principles, laws, customs, codes, habits, actions - all are to be judged on the twin bases of intention and consequence.  Is the intention pure, is it born out of prema, is it based on truth?  Does it result in santhi?  If yes, dharma is enshrined in that action or law, custom or conduct.

- Baba -


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
