      It is not only saints but everything
      in nature--trees, birds, animals--they
      all live for the sake of others. Why
      does a candle burn and melt away? To
      give light. Why does an incense stick
      burn to ash? To give fragrance. Why
      does a tree grow? To give fruit and
      flowers. Is there anything, sentient
      or insentient, in this world that lives
      for its own sake? No. When the entire
      nature sacrifices, why should we human
      beings alone lead selfish lives? We are
      here to give and give and give. What is
      due to us will come without our worrying
      about it.
