DASOPADESAM/THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

  1. One of our duties as human beings is to avail ourselves of every opportunity to do good to others.

duties devolving upon man in his attempt to maintain a harmonious relation

between his own higher interests and ideals on the one hand and the stern

realities of life…
