Chapter6 - The Individual and the Society in Hinduism

According to Hinduism, spiritual freedom or Moksha is the ultimate goal of life. But desires and  passions which obstruct this do exist in man, ever struggling to find an outlet. It is not very easy to get rid of them overnight. Realising this, the great Hindu sages have  provided us with right avenues for directing and guiding them. 

Looked at from this angle the conception of the four Purusharthas (ends to be striven for, by man) viz, Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha is a unique contribution made by Hinduism. Acquisition and enjoyment of material wealth (Artha) and satisfaction of desires (Kama) should always be within the limits allowed by Dharma or righteousness.
