Starting Kshetre Kshetre Dharmam kuru, he said anything we do for only the deha (body), is not Dharma. When we do it for the Society it is Dharma. Vyasthi Jeeva, Samashthi Ishwara, we need to proceed from Deha Buddhi through Dharma Buddhi to Daiva Buddhi. Important 4 points to remember Nirmama, Nirahankara, Niswartha, Nissanga(detachment).... These will lead us to a dharmic life. He also said our life should be with Nishtha, to be a Nishthavan we have to have Niyam (discipline).
