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 October 21, 2013
na kilisseyya paṇḍito.
One should first establish oneself
in what is proper and only then
try to instruct others. Doing this,
the wise one will not be criticized.
