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 April 21, 2014
iti vidvā samañcare.
Were there a mountain all made of gold,
doubled that would not be enough
to satisfy a single person:
know this and live accordingly.
