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 August 28, 2013
Pathavisamo no virujjhati,
indakhilupamo tādi subbato,
saṃsārā na bhavanti tādino.
There is no more worldly existence for the wise one who,
like the earth, resents nothing,
who is firm as a high pillar
and as pure as a deep pool free from mud.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha's Path of Wisdom, translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
