IDEALS-AUSTERITIES-FOOD

 

[Adhyaya XVII-Slokas 3,5-10, 14-16, 20-22]

EVERY man is born with a particular nature, the result of his Karma. According to this is shaped his faith. Yet the faith that we consciously nurse also reacts on us. We should, therefore, set for ourselves good ideals. The action and reaction between natural tendency and chosen ideals are brought cut in the following sloka. Hope for progress lies in this interaction. 

Everyone's faith is fashioned according to one's essential nature. Man is made up of his faith; that in which a man places faith, he too is that.
