Life For Service

“To take Sanyas (renunciation) is not to abandon life. The real spirit is to make the country your family work together instead of working only for your own. The step beyond is to serve humanity and the next step is to serve God.”

Bal Gangadhar Tilak

Rephrase :

“To offer Oneself for service (renunciation) is not to abandon life. The real spirit is to make the universe One’s family, work together instead of working only for oneself. The step beyond is to serve humanity – all living beings and the next step is to serve God – the universal energy – the almighty.”

Rephrase :

“To Love is not to abandon life. The real spirit is to make the whole universe One’s Love, Love everyone instead of Loving only for oneself. The step beyond is to Love humanity – all living beings and the next step is to Love God – the universal energy – the almighty.”
