AlochanaamR^itaMThe Danger of MoralityThe 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.
