To Live to Benefit Mankind(CD)
What does it mean to "to live to benefit mankind"? Ed Abdill suggests that it is not in our work or occupation but in our inner attitude that the unselfish life is to be found. Much of the discussion centers on the statement made in Letter 88 of The Mahatma Letters to A. P. Sinnett that, "the origin of every evil whether small or great is in human action, in man whose intelligence makes him the one free agent in Nature." Selfishness is identified as the root cause of much of the world’s evil, and the speaker explores some of the more subtle ways in which selfishness may manifest itself in our daily actions. 1986. 30 minutes.
