Can a man not lead a good without aspiring for anything beyond this life ?
On the off chance that you lead a prudent life and pass on, you will pass on as a decent man, not as a holy person. You won’t achieve Moksha (freedom).
You have several great men. In any case, what number of holy people have you got ? Indeed, even genuine wannabes are uncommon on the planet now. Indeed, even in you classification of “good men”, there are evaluations. What number of good men have you got of Gandhiji’s sort ?
What benefit your men do ? They may be honest and honorable; they may be beneficent and devout. Yet, even they will be childish at the center. They will store riches and take care they could call their own wife and kids. Will they feel that all youngsters are theirs ? When they bring sweetmeats from the bazaar, will they provide for other individuals’ kids first ? No, no. Since they have no learning of reality that the One Self abides in all creatures. Unless this comprehension of the Truth occurs to them, unless they reflect upon this Supreme Reality and endeavor to acknowledge It, in what manner would they be able to create renunciation and the genuine soul of magnanimous administration ?
To be a decent man is most likely a superior perfect than to be only a human creature, brimming with awful qualities. Be that as it may, it is just a necessary chore; it is just a stage closer the objective, not the end or the objective itself. The objective is Self-acknowledgment or Moksha. Keeping in mind the end goal to accomplish that, you must be great and do great; and you must accomplish more – you must develop segregation, dispassion and a right state of mind to life; you must reflect, do Japa (recognition of the Lord’s name) and Kirtan (singing reverential tunes), study sacred writings. At that point, by the finesse of God, you will achieve the objective!
