I've had this answer of yours for a few days, but I'd like to question it :
Atmajnana may be even rarer than the merit of a human birth (what must we
have done ? Been good dogs ? good snakes ?...) -- but surely atmaseva is
something within our reach and duty, whether identifiable as our varnadharma
or not ?
It asks nothing but to allow atman as witness to all our thoughts and words
and actions ?

Would that it were true! Unfortunately of all who have earned the merit
of a human birth, only a rare few will dedicate themselves to knowing the
atma. That's why they should be cherished whoever they are.
