Question
unselfishness
unselfishness  
sir, can you explain me this message?

Answer
Hi,

Only enlightened people can be truly unselfish. They do not need to go to any temple nor read any religious books because they have already reached the destination.

If you truly introspect on this message, you will realise that you can not say 'Yes' to the question 'Are you unselfish?'. That means you should go to church/temple and read religious books.

In short, the message urges everyone to follow the spiritual path and attain enlightenment. btw the message does not seem to be by Swami Vivekananda. But that's ok. It does not matter who said this. Whoever said this, that person knows that the reader is selfish. That is the reason the second line starts with "IF YOU ARE....."

Thanks for asking this question.

Best wishes,
