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 November 05, 2013
Sabbe tasanti daṇḍassa.
Sabbesaṃ jīvitaṃ piyaṃ.
Attānaṃ upamaṃ katvā;
na haneyya na ghātaye.
All tremble at punishment.
Life is dear to all.
Put yourself in the place of others;
kill none nor have another killed.
Gemstones of the Good Dhamma, compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
