You are the best social entrepreneur

The best yogi is one who regards every being like oneself and who can feel the pain and pleasures of others as ones own, O Arjuna. (Gita-6.32) Nothing is beyond the reach of those who have others interest in their mind. Selfless service to humanity is the true service to God and the highest form of worship.
