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.
At Thy Lotus Feet His Holiness Sri Dattaswami
