Participation in public duties with goodwill

By Ko Tun Khin

“We can do no great things; only small things with great love,” said a Roman Catholic nun Mother Teresa. It means we should not do everything finding great things but should do small things with great love and a pure mind. Only then, can they be great things.

She dedicated her life to serving the poor

The winner of the Nobel Peace prize and other awards was born in the city of Macedonia in 1910. When she turned 18, she left her parental home, and cared for the war refugees, patients with leprosy and tuberculosis and abandoned children all around the world. Her heart is full of pure and peaceful love and she also dedicated her life to serving in altruism.

She is the embodiment of kindness and altruism in the world. Altruism means the willingness to do things that brings advantages to others. The “parahita” is just a willingness to do something for others regardless of living standards or social status without thinking of any distinction among others.

Being a government employee, he must be responsible for the ethics like allegiance to the State, the Constitution and existing laws and rules, interests of the State and people, free of party politics and respect to the people, and he must dutifully serve the duties without fail at any time and any circumstance.

It was noted that there are two kinds — “attahita” and “parahita”. The self-development for the welfare of oneself (attahita) and the welfare of others (parahita).

Benefits of good karma

“Whatever you do with goodwill, you will have good fortune. If you have good fortune, you will have good benefits in your life. If you do not have goodwill, your good fortune will not come to you. If you have a bad will, there might be bad luck. If your goodwill is noble, your fortune will be also noble as well as your life,” according to the Mountain Ranges Buddha Missionary Sayadaw.

Therefore, you should do everything with goodwill and so you will achieve the benefits of good karma. Although everybody needs to work for a living, they should do with goodwill in careers like teaching, medical services, cleaning, riding trishaw or cooking.

Work with goodwill

If you are a private company staff or government employee, you will get a proper salary and so you should do with goodwill. If you serve the duties without thinking of the upper hand between the employers and employees, there would be signs of progress in every operation.

The number of government staff is 1.4 per cent of the country’s population. The civil service personnel and public officials are the ones who get the salaries provided by the people and so they must have loyalty to the people. Full of goodwill, they should perform their duties in the public services sectors.

All the medical experts also must take the Hippocratic Oath in their convocation ceremony. They pledged like “We shall while caring for a patient, regard responsibility to the patient as a paramount duty. Therefore, medical professionals must provide medical services to the people as per their ethics regardless of any circumstance.

According to a teacher’s duties, “They must train their pupils and students in the best discipline, they see that they grasp their lessons well, they instruct them in the arts and sciences, they provide for their safety in every quarter and they introduce them to their friends and associates,” preached by Thingazar Sayadaw, the teachers must do these ethnics for their pupils and students. The teachers do not change their mind depending on a certain situation nor time. They train their pupils and students to be educated persons.

Target the government staff

Some of the people intentionally commit incitements and threats to stop the government mechanism targeting the government workers to fail in their duties.

The government employees fail to do their duties due to the moves that affect the individuals’ rights, freedom and integrity. Some have to join in such movements as they could not afford to deny the threats.

Therefore, the State Administration Council released a statement to take action against those who commit coercion and intimidation to join the CDM under the law. So, there is a chance to do the right things even if they do something wrong.

As the civil service personnel are educated and farsighted persons, they should keep doing public services with full of responsibilities in accord with the current trend and circumstance.
