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 11, 2013
attano ca parassa ca;
paraṃ saṅkupitaṃ ñatvā,
yo sato upasammati.
Knowing that the other person is angry,
one who remains mindful and calm
acts for one's own best interest
and for the other's interest, too.
Saṃyutta Nikāya 1.188
