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 December 08, 2013
Anupubbena medhāvī, thokaṃ thokaṃ, khaṇe khaṇe,
One by one, little by little, moment by moment,
a wise one should remove one's own impurities,
as a smith removes dross from silver.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha's Path of Wisdom, translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
