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

etaṃ buddhāna sāsanaṃ.
To avoid all evil,
to cultivate good,
and to purify one's mind --
this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
