It is a matter that comes to the careful observer's attention that in groups or societies, in ashrams or institutions, where what is practised corresponds to the Short Path--however roughly and imperfectly--the results are very mixed and often saddening to the leaders. Where no attempt is made to bring in the Long Path's corrective work, where there is no striving for self-improvement, the end is a confused one--some satisfactions but more disappointments.
