AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM The Danger of Morality The man who remains bound by personal or social ideas of duty, necessary as they are for the ignorant to tame their clamorous desires, will be indeed a "good" man, but he will never attain to the fulfilment of this yoga [taught in the Gita]. He will only replace the desire for one kind of fruit by the desire for another kind; he will strive, even more passionately perhaps, for these higher results and be more bitterly grieved by not attaining them.

There is no passion so terrible as the passion of the altruist, no egoism so hard to shake as the fixed egoism of virtue, precisely because it is justified in its own eyes and justified in the sight of men and cannot see the necessity for yielding to a higher law. Even if there is no grieving over the results, there will be the labour and strife of the rajasic kartA¢, struggling nd fighting, getting eager and getting exhausted, not trigunA¢tI®ta, always under bondage to the gunas.

It was under the domination of these ideas of personal virtue and social duty that Arjuna refused to fight.

- Sri Aurobindo (Yoga and its Objects)
