Sages are familiar with all kinds of conduct-extemal and internal,
practical and spiritual, and also of worldly conduct
the ideal conduct enjoined by scriptures,
for without such comprehensive knowledge
they cannot frame laws to regulate social life
behaviour and a decorous order.
Bestowing material benefits on society is not a question of truth ( Dharm )
because physical problems are here today and gone tomorrow.
Sages do operate as LAW-GIVERS
they have rightly exerted themselves for the eradication of social evils.
The undertaking of worship of the Supreme Spirit in a spirit of discernment
renunciation may not be possible
if these evils are not eliminated.
