11. Translate the following into English :

प्रयत्न करना है तो फिर प्रार्थना क्यों ? प्रयत्न करना है, इसीलिए तो प्रार्थना चाहिए, मैं प्रयत्न करने वाला हूँ । पर फल मेरी मुट्ठी में थोड़े ही है । फल तो ईश्वर की इच्छा पर अवलम्बित है । मैं प्रयत्न करके भी कितना करूंगा ? मेरी शक्ति कितनी अल्प है ? ईश्वर की सहायता के बिना मैं अकेला क्या कर सकता हूँ ? मैं सत्य की ओर अपना कदम बढ़ाता रहूँ तो भी ईश्वर की कृपा के बिना मैं मंजिल पर नहीं पहुँच सकता । मैं रास्ता काटने का प्रयत्न तो करता हूँ, पर अन्त में मैं रास्ता काटुंगा कि बीच में मेरे पैर कट जाने वाले हैं, यह कौन कह सकता है । इसलिए अपने ही बलबूते मैं मंजिल पर पहुँच जाऊँगा, यह घमण्ड फिजूल है ।

Answer – Why pray if it is to try ? It is to try therefore prayer is needed. I am about to try but the result is not in my hand. The result depends on the wish of God. How much will I do with my attempt ? How short is my power ? What can only I do without the help of God ? I proceed towards the truth even then I cannot reach my target without grace of God. I try to cover the path but at last I will cover the path or I will lose my feet, who can say it ? So I shall get my aim by myself, this proud is false.
