541. Life

In the animal life
Competition is indispensable.
Here the struggle for existence, itself,
Is a constant battle.

In the human life
Co-operation is indispensable.
Here collective peace and security
Give birth to progress and prosperity.

In the life divine
Self-dedication is indispensable.
Here universal oneness and love-revelation
Are God-manifestation.
