|Without the knowledge of God the society cannot be controlled|
Mere social service without devotion – gives temporary heaven,
Veda and Gita say the same, - such social service is not eternal.
If you force rich to help poor, – they will act only, no reality.
If you convince the rich – by preaching spiritual knowledge,
They will really serve poor, - force will not work forever.
Even the poor people after – receiving donation from rich,
Do not get satisfied at any stage – without spiritual knowledge.
The result of your social service – gives them temporary happiness.
Hence, the fruit for your sacrifice – must be also temporary only.
A politician gets temporary post – and earns temporary wealth
For his social service, – his fame is also not eternal because
It does not follow the soul – after death to the upper world.
Preaching spiritualism should be – the main activity always
Like teaching subjects is main – in a residential college.
Boarding and lodging are also given, – but they are not main.
Similarly, while turning people – into devotees, you may help
The poor people involved in – such divine conversion here.
In such case the fruit is eternal, – because the poor people learn
To be contented with available benefits, – no end to materialism.
In the present socialism – the poor is never satisfied in life,
Donor weeps after donation – receiver is never satisfied.
This leads to cheating by donor – and revolt by receiver.
Both destroy the peace of society, – Pravrutti is disturbed.
Nivrutti cannot stand in society – with disturbed Pravrutti.
Nivrutti is the play of Lord – Pravrutti is the stage for His play.
Yajna is sacrifice for society – that gives temporary heaven.
By such Yajna, Dharma Raja – went to temporary heaven only.
The same sacrifice of Saktuprastha – to Lord in the guest form
Leads him to the eternal abode of God, - Nivrutti is highest.
If Nivrutti is preached – Pravrutti is also setup permanently.
If Pravrutti alone is preached – even Pravrutti is not settled.
Without the knowledge of God – society cannot be controlled.
Knowledge of God leads people – to permanent abode of God,
Simultaneously it will also setup – the balance of the society.
