Right Living
Living in common to all being.Right living is given to only a few. It is right living that becomes lightly fruitful. Refulgent living is wrong. Restrained living is right. Through of the wellness of other must dominate over the thought of self interest. Right living causes the least inference to the other and the minimum good to all. Make your life useful to the others and an instrument to eliminate mystery in these.
