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 6, 2013
Netā vinetā anunetā,
Tādiso labhate yasaṃ.
Who is hospitable, and friendly,
Liberal and unselfish,
A guide, an instructor, a leader,
Such a one to honour may attain.
Dīgha Nikāya 3.273 Everyman's Ethics: Four Discourses by the Buddha (WH 14), translated by Narada Thera
