have seen with our own eyes the progressive improvement of livestock and the health of men
as a result of care and attention bestowed even in one generation. What we have seen in
the physical world applies to the minds and souls of men also. If the postulates of
Vedanta are accepted, the vedantic ethic is spiritual eugenics. The object of right living
to a Vedantin is twofold; ones own true happiness and ones contribution to a
better world irrespective of disconnection in memory when we are re born.
The appeal of Vedanta is based on a feeling of oneness with
the world and responsibility for its future. Social and civic cooperation permanently
benefits the town or village wherein one is a citizen; patriotism benefits the future
generations of the country to which one belongs; Vedanta seeks the welfare of the future
world of which we are the present builders.
