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

EVERYONE ENJOY A HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY!
Dhammapīti sukhaṃ seti
sadā ramati paṇḍito.
One who drinks deep the Dhamma
lives happily with a tranquil mind.
The wise one ever delights in the Dhamma
made known by the Noble One (the Buddha).
