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 September 20, 2013
Susukhaṃ vata jīvāma,
Happy indeed we live,
friendly amidst the hostile.
Amidst hostile people
we dwell free from hatred.
