What does the word “help” actually mean?

“Help” has two different meanings. One is superficial and the other has a certain depth to it. On the superficial plane, ‘help’ is nothing more than a transaction. It’s just a give and take process. Whether you feed the hungry, give clothes to a beggar, donate money to a temple, provide physical protection to someone, conduct a yagna, sacrifice animals, or educate someone, you are only making a transaction. You always desire to get something in the end. The only good quality of such a helpful man is that he is patient. You will find a lot of patience within him. He can wait for a day, week, month, year, or his entire lifetime to reap the reward. But his intentions are not noteworthy because deep down, he is waiting for his reward. He is like a child waiting for his mother to buy him a video-game if he comes first in his class. The only difference is that a grown-up man can hide his childish curiosity behind a mask. He spends his whole life building and repairing his mask because his reality will be revealed once the mask falls down. So the only credit that I will give to a grown-up man is that he is patient. Although, that patience has an extremely negative connotation.
