Document Summary

Wealth, fame and power are exclusive, as they do not multiply when shared, they cannot be distributed without diminishing one"s own portion. The drive for success is impossible to satisfy, which leads to greed, as people can never get enough of what they do not really want. Worldly success is identical with hedonism, as it centers meaning in the self, which proves to be too small for perpetual enthusiasm: everyone wants more from life than wealth, fame and power. Hinduism draws distinction between chronological and psychological age; two may have the same chronological age but one person may have a psychological age of a nine year old (wanting pleasure) while the other one is an adult. This produces the religion of duty after pleasure and success. This transforms the will-to-get into the will-to-give and the will-to- win into the will-to-serve.
