Remember Dharma, Tao And Self-Transcending Awareness.

Rating: 5.0

Remember
that to achieve the unitive knowledge,
to realize this supreme identity,
is the final end and purpose
of human existence.

Remember
that there is a Law or Dharma,
which must be obeyed,
a Tao or way, which
must be followed,
if men are to achieve their final end.

Remember
that there is of I, me, mine,
that can make a man selfish,
and that consequently the Tao
is a Way of humility and
compassion, the Dharma a Law
of modification
and self-transcending awareness.

Remember all these.

Part 2 Gita again says, Karmanye va adhikaraste, Ma Phaleshu kadhachana. One has to do execute the duties assigned, The Karma. But should not have any wish or expectation about its result. You have been able to transcend the borders of religion, nations, cultures in this mighty poem. Congrats.

Hi Tony, Very poignant line of thinking. I have read about Tao, THE WAY-the path one has to select to achieve the holy end. Dharma, of course, as Bhagawat Gita defines, is the duty assigned to one by Almighty. As Gita says, one has to transcend beyond THE I, self, selfishness, to attain this. (Continued)
