Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, worship, psychic control or philosophy — by one, or more, or all of these — and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, dogmas, rituals, books, temples, and forms, are but secondary details. -- Swami Vivikenanda

Daily Words of the Buddha for June 13, 2013
oghaṃ tarati duttaraṃ.
In every virtue all-accomplished,
with wisdom full and mind composed,
looking within and ever mindful--
thus one crosses the raging flood.
