"but is not every life, every work fine?"

King James Bible - Romans 8.28"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose."

A similar thought was echoed by Mahatma Gandhi, "No joy can compare with the joy of doing one's duty quietly."

The theory of karma also espouses the fact that performing one’s assigned duties with mindfulness is the primary goal of a human being's life. Dharma or duty is one's personal obligations, calling and duties and living life in accordance with dharma helps the individual to proceed quickly towards salvation.
