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 21, 2013
ekacariyaṃ daḷhaṃ kayirā;
natthi bāle sahāyatā.
Should a seeker not find
a companion who is better or equal,
let one resolutely pursue a solitary course;
there is no fellowship with the fool.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha's Path of Wisdom, translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
