"Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha" - Sai Inspires

The Vedas lay down four goals before man;
Dharma (righteousness), Artha (wealth), Kama (Desire) and Moksha (Liberation). But they have to be pursued in pairs, Dharma and Artha together and Kama and Moksha combined. That is to say, Wealth has to be earned through Righteousness and our Desire should be for Liberation. 
But man takes these four separately and ends up losing everything. He puts them into separate compartments and adopts distinct plans to achieve them. He gives up Righteousness and Liberation  as beyond him and wastes his life pursuing only Wealth and Desire. This lead him to ruin.
