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 23, 2014
Sambādhe vāpi vindanti,
ye satiṃ paccalatthaṃsu
sammā te susamāhitā.
Even when obstacles crowd in,
the path to Nibbana can be won
by those who establish mindfulness
and bring to perfection equipoise.
Saṃyutta Nikāya 1.88
