Badrinath says here what self-interest, truth, and happiness are, is to be known not by any theory but by the innate rhythms of life. Here, he picks the example of the Mahabharata where it is shown how self-interest can exist only in paradox: one serves one’s self-interest on the measure in which one serves the interest of the other.

Keywords:   Mahabharata, self-interest, truth, happiness
