That is the last I see ofthese two yellow-robed wanderers. * This is the pilgrim season. During the four months of su mmer the Himalayan trails and mountain paths can be safely negotiated, but afterwards they are buried in snow four, five and six feet deep, and travelling becomes a dangerous and often impossible task. So the pil grims make their appearance only during the summer. Most of them are holy men, fakirs and monks. I admire the determination, the bravery and the religious devotion of these peopie who come from the plains of India, from regions of fiercely-burning steamy heat to an austere region of precipices, ice and snow.
If we a re nothing more tharl physical bodies, then the objection is perfectly fair. If we are merely flies fluttering across this planet for our brief day and gone, then the West is right. If, however, we are souls revisiting this world again and again, then the request to settle up in one earth-life the sins we have committeed in another possesses a certain rough j ustice about it. Then, the destiny which puts its imprint on our lives becomes no blind arbitrary force. I believe, nay, I know, that man's destiny is with God, and not with the worms.
What is unreasonable is the lamentable and listless hopelessness into which the Indian peop le often fall, a ided and abetted by the relaxing enervating effect of tropical climate. The futility of a merely physical view of thi ngs becomes more apparent when this question oflife's j ustice or i nj ustice is reflected on. We ignore the mental side of life as being of lesser importance when all the time, in N atllre's eyes, it is the causati<,t side. Nature certainly seems "red in tooth and claw", as the materi alists say.
