Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant,
fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilization and sent whole nations to despair+

रुचिनां वैचित्र्यादृजुकुटिलनानापथजुषाम
नृणामेको गम्यस्त्वमसि पयसामर्णव इव

जिस तरह अलग-अलग स्रोतों से निकली नदियां अंत में समुद्र में मिल जाती हैं, उसी तरह मनुष्य अपनी इच्छा के अनुरूप अलग-अलग मार्ग चुनता है,टेढ़े-मेढ़े लगें, परंतु सभी भगवान तक ही जाते हैं

#VivekanandaInChicago "The Hindus have received their religion through revelation, the Vedas. They hold that the
Vedas are without beginning and without end. It may sound ludicrous to this audience, how
a book can be without beginning or end..."
"...Bt by the Vedas no books are meant. They mean
accumulated treasury of spiritual laws discovered by diff persons in diff times.
Jus as the law of gravitation existed be4 its discovery, & wud exist if all humanity
forgot it, so is it wid the laws tht govern th spiritual world.
"The moral, ethical, and
spiritual relations between soul and soul and between individual spirits and the Father of all
spirits, were there before their discovery, and would remain even if we forgot them."
