Between theory and practice...

- Taking what chance may bring,

surmounting all dualities,

knowing no envy,

the same in success and failure.

Yet wise men know...

- Do the allotted task...

When he casts off

attachment to his deeds

a man embarks on his work

ever content, on none dependent.

THE VOW:

Whoever gives up a deed

because it causes pain,

or because he shrinks

from bodily pain,

follows the way of darkness,

knowing nothing of self-surrender.

Whoever gives up a deed

because it causes pain...

But if work is done

because it should be done

and is enjoined by Scripture,

but if work is done

because it should be done

and is enjoined by Scripture

and without thought

for great benefits,

then that is

surrender in goodness...

You sustain the gods

and the gods sustain you in return.

You sustain the gods

and the gods sustain you.

The gods sustain you in return,

attaining the highest good.

You sustain the gods

and the gods sustain you.

With this you sustain the gods

and the gods sustain you in return.

Sustain one another,

you shall attain the highest good.

You sustain the gods...

With this you sustain the gods...

Prom food

do all contingent beings derive

and food derives from rain.

Prom food

do all contingent beings derive...

Rain derives from sacrifice

and sacrifice from work...

With doubt cut away,

suffused with goodness,

the self-surrendered man

hates neither uncongenial work

nor looks only for pleasant work...

So was the wheel set in motion,

and who here

fails to match his turning,

living an evil life...

He who only indulges

in sensual pleasure

lives his life in vain...

CONPRONTATION AND REUCUE

""This I have gained today...""

""This whim I"II satisfy...""

""This wealth is mine...""

""And much more too
