Selected Letters of Gandhi : Part-1


Chapter-13: The Principle of Action


I visualize from here the work you are doing. Whoever works according to her capacity has fulfilled her mission. But in your work you must cultivate that attitude of mind which is inculcated in the Gita. That is to do everything with a view to serve or as an offering to God, you will never have the feeling “I am doing this.” You will not then have ill-will for anybody and you will be generous to others. You should always ask yourselves whether your smallest action is guided by these principles.
