We must help others while we can. As we age, it becomes difficult to even to take care of ourselves. So, instead of postponing good deeds, we should act when we have the strength. The usual argument we use to refuse help to others is life is difficult as it is, and we find it tough to manage our own lives. That being the case, helping others is an impossibility. But when we are on the deathbed, we think back over our past, and feel sorry that we helped none. Selfless service is what is required. There are examples of such service, said Goda Venkateswara Sastrigal, in a discourse.

Demons had a great advantage over the celestial beings for their guru Sukracharya knew a mantra which could resurrect those who were dead and restore their youth to them. The celestial beings, therefore, wanted to augment their strength, and Lord Narayana suggested that they churn the ocean to get nectar which would confer immortality on them. But to do this, they had to take the help of the demons. The demons knew that after the lifetime of Sukracharya, they would not have an edge over the celestial beings. So they decided to go along with the plan.

Using the Mandara mountain, the two groups churned the ocean, but the mountain tilted, and Lord Narayana had to appear as a tortoise (Kurma) to support the mountain. The Lord is always bearing the burden of the Earth. Does anyone do such selfless service for the good of others?

Like Narayana, His bhakta Dhruva too was selfless.

When Dhruva did penance, Narayana appeared and told him that at the end of his earthly sojourn, he would reach His feet. When Dhruvaís life ended and he was on his way to Vaikunta, he expressed his willingness to go to Vaikunta only if his mother, who had told him about Narayana, was also granted the same blessing. Then he noticed that his mother too was making her way to Vaikunta, and he was pleased. Thus Dhruva thought of his mother, even when he was granted a great boon. He was asked to be the Pole Star and guide all celestial bodies until the end of Kali Yuga. Thus Dhruva selflessly shows the path to all celestial bodies.
