Selection from Mahatma Gandhi Ji's Book ‘Pathway to God': Chapters 4 - 6, Part 2 of 2

Chapter Five continued LOVE(AHIMSA). The Law of Love, call it attraction, affinity, cohesion if you like, governs the world. A mission that becomes him, it is that of Ahimsa (nonviolence). Chapter Six SELF-RESTRAINT. Restraint Should be voluntary. One should eat not in order to please the palate but just to keep the body going. The conquest of lust is the highest endeavour of man or woman’s existence. All power comes from the observation and sublimation of the vitality that is responsible for the creation of life. Restraint vs. Suppression.

Chapter Four TRUTH (1)What is Truth? Different people think of different and contrary truths? (2)Truth is the Source of Character. Character is based on virtuous action, and virtuous action is grounded on Truth. (3) How to Realize It? Which may be likened to the Philosopher’s Stone or the Cow of Plenty? (4) Need of Fearless Vigilance. There is so much superstition and hypocrisy around, even Truth will have to be suppressed. (5) Its Supreme Value. God as Truth has been for me a treasure beyond price. Chapter Five LOVE (AHIMSA) (1)Truth and Love (2)Love Unites (3)Love Is Life.

The Essenes' Live Food Vegan Lifestyle as Part of Their Way to God: Interview with Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, Part 2 of 2

The Essenes' Live Food Vegan Lifestyle as Part of Their Way to God: Interview with Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, Part 2 of 2

The ultimate purpose of life is to know God. We call it deveikut in Hebrew. It means “God merging,” and “oneness.” That’s the ultimate purpose of life. That’s why we’re put here on the planet. From a spiritual point of view, from the Torah point of view, that’s our ultimate purpose, and the Torah is the guide to that. That’s the key idea. The movement in that direction is really one step at a time, and it’s according to the person. Now, the movement of kundalini (spiritual energy), or in Hebrew, the Ruach HaKodesh, it supports that.

The Essenes' Live Food Vegan Lifestyle as Part of Their Way to God: Interview with Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, Part 1 of 2

The Essenes, which maybe began about 500 BC, around the time of Pythagoras... Apparently, they trained Pythagoras on Mount Carmel, he came down as a live food vegan. The word Essene means “doers of the Torah.” So the Essenes were intense doers of the Torah. Their inner circle were live food vegans, the inner teachings. Because as doers of the Torah, they were following the Torah. They were following Genesis 1:29.

A Master's Only Obligation is to Liberate People: Questions and Answers, Part 4 of 4 #22, Dec.2, 1988

A Master's Only Obligation is to Liberate People: Questions and Answers, Part 4 of 4 #22, Dec.2, 1988

The realm of the Avatamsaka, the realm of the Amitabha Buddha, can still be described. Some other realms are indescribable. This is the true Dharma eye. Just don’t be attached to it. We don’t have to change our situation, we just need to change from within.“Blessing power” is when an enlightened spiritual practitioner has unlimited merit, then when He looks at anyone, that person will receive unlimited blessings. Whoever He touches is guaranteed to be liberated. Whoever is initiated by Him is sure to become enlightened.

A Master's Only Obligation is to Liberate People: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 4 #22, Dec.2, 1988

For us Quan Yin practitioners, at the moment of initiation, all the bad karma (retribution) created life after life is completely erased. It is because the past bad karma (retribution) is completely erased that we can have Buddha's Light and enlightenment experience, that we can listen to our true Self, that we can hear the inner (Heavenly) Sound, the voiceless Sound, which is a very beautiful, inconceivable inner Music that we have never heard before. After hearing it, our body becomes very relaxed, we feel that our bad karma (retribution) is gone, and we are truly very blissful.

We don’t compromise our choice for one or two friends and use that as an excuse. I’m telling you, when you die, no friend can come to help you. At that time, no one will come to speak for you, “Oh, the King of Hell, please have mercy on my friend. He drank wine and ate meat for my sake. Punish me instead and keep me in hell if you need to. Please let him go.” Will anyone say that for you? No. Therefore, we should not make excuse. Find reasons for spiritual cultivation, don’t make excuses for not doing it.

Since ancient times, all enlightened Masters have promised us this. They came down here for this purpose only: to help people get immediate enlightenment and be liberated in one lifetime. They have no other mission. These are the true Masters. The one who has attained the Truth can transmit this enlightenment to other people, we call him a true Master. We, who have taken monastic vows, only have one mission in life: that is spiritual cultivation. If we are Pure Land master, we should recite, “Namo Amitabha Buddha.” If we are Tibetan masters, we should recite “Om Mani Padme Hum”

From Theosophy's Sacred Teachings: “The Voice of the Silence,” Fragment I, Part 2 of 2

Watch how they hover over the stormy sea of human life, and how exhausted, bleeding, broken-winged, they drop one after other on the swelling waves. If through the Hall of Wisdom, thou would reach the Vale of Bliss, Disciple, close fast thy senses against the great dire heresy of separateness that weans thee from the rest. Then from the heart that Power shall rise into the sixth, the middle region, the place between thine eyes, when it becomes the breath of the One-Soul, the voice which fills all, thy Master’s voice. Tis only then thou can become a “Walker of the SKY” who treads the winds above the waves, whose step touches not the waters. Before thou set thy foot upon the ladder’s upper rung, the ladder of the mystic sounds, thou hast to hear the voice of thy inner God (the Higher Self) in seven manners.

The 19th-century Russian esotericist Helena Petrovna von Hahn, more popularly known As Madame Blavatsky or H.P.B., came from a noble family in Ukraine. As a child, Madame Blavatsky would often have visions and displayed clairvoyance as well as other metaphysical phenomena. Years later, she traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East studying under various teachers and Sufi saints. While in London, United Kingdom, she met one special teacher, an Indian yogi named Master Morya, who later directed her to go to New York in the United States. Once there, she founded the Theosophical Soceity in 1875 with other like-minded individuals.

From Sikhism's Holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib: Guru Nanak, Pages 14-16, Part 2 of 2

Those who are pleasing to Him are good. What else is there to be said? Wisdom, honor and wealth are in the laps of those whose hearts remain permeated with the Lord. What praise can be offered to them? What other adornments can be bestowed upon them? O Nanak, those who lack the Lord’s Glance of Grace cherish neither charity nor the Lord’s Name. The Great Giver has given the intoxicating drug of falsehood. The people are intoxicated; they have forgotten death, and they have fun for a few days. Those who do not use intoxicants are true; they dwell in the Court of the Lord. O Nanak, know the True Lord as True. Serving Him, peace is obtained; you shall go to His Court with honor. The sweetness of Truth is not fermented from molasses.

"The True Lord, the Formless One, is Himself in His Own Place. I have heard, over and over again, and so I tell the tale; as it pleases You, Lord, pleases instill within me the yearning for You." You are the One True Lord and Master of all the other beings, of so many worlds. Nanak seeks the company of the lowest of the low class, the very lowest of the low. In that place where the lowly are cared for- there, the Blessings of Your Glance of Grace rain down. O my Creator! O Baba, speak only that which will bring you honor. Those words are acceptable, which, when spoken, bring honor. Harsh words bring only grief.

Mission of Compassion: An Interview with Zen Buddhist Head Priest Souken Danjo, Part 2 of 2

Of course, in a large sense, a vibration or a sound means a lot, I think. But, here is a word called “a spiritual sound.” It is not music, and not to enjoy a sound. It is a spiritual sound. When I intend to cherish a spiritual sound, I think it is profoundly meaningful. I think there are lots of sounds which relax your mind, or make you peaceful, or make you approach being a so-called compassionate person. There are sounds which give you the opposite reactions, too. But if the music makes us or our minds peaceful as much as possible, I think such music gives a tremendous power.

Mission of Compassion: An Interview with Zen Buddhist Head Priest Souken Danjo, Part 1 of 2

Reverend Souken Danjo was born in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture in 1956. After graduating from a university in Japan, he studied in America, specializing in agro-economics. Upon his return, he stayed in a mountain in Hino County, Tottori Prefecture for more than a year in order to make a retreat, meditating, putting natural agriculture into practice, and beginning to study healthy food. Before entering into priesthood, he had also traveled to India, where he learned a philosophy of yoga at an ashram in Rishikesh. One day, he had a chance encounter of meeting His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. The story began when he was picking up some medicine at a Tibetan hospital in Delhi.

Selection from the Holy Kitab-I-Aqdas of the Baha'i Faith: Paragraphs 112-150, Part 2 of 2

Let none, in this Day, hold fast to anything save that which hath been manifested in this Revelation. Such is the admonition of the Lord, before and hereafter—an admonition. Naught shall avail you in this Day but God, nor is there any refuge to flee to save Him. Wish not for others what ye wish not for yourselves. “Lay not upon your souls that which will weary them and weigh them down, but rather what will lighten and uplift them, so that they may soar on the wings on the Divine verses towards the Dawning-place of His manifest signs; this will draw you nearer to God, did ye but comprehend.”

Say: Blessed is he who, at the hour of dawn, centering his thoughts on God, occupied with His remembrance, and supplicating His forgiveness, directeth his steps to the Mashriqu’l-Adhkár, and entering therein, seateth himself silence to listen to the verses of God, the Sovereign, the Mighty, the All-Praised. These verses draw hearts that are pure unto those spiritual worlds that can neither be expressed in words nor intimated by allusion. The liberty that profiteth you is to be found nowhere except in complete servitude unto God, the Eternal Truth.

From the Book of Chuang Tzu: Chapter 18, Perfect Happiness, Part 2 of 2

Play the Hsien Ch'ih (Music of the Yellow Emperor) or the Chiu Shao in the wilds of Tung-t'ing, and birds will fly away, beasts will take themselves off, and fishes will dive down below. But men will collect to hear. "Water, which is life to fishes, is death to man. Being differently constituted, their likes and dislikes are different. Therefore the Sages of the past favored not uniformity of skill or of occupation. Reputation was commensurate with reality; means were adapted to end. This was called a due relationship with others coupled with advantage to oneself."

From the Book of Chuang Tzu: Chapter 18, Perfect Happiness, Part 1 of 2

I make true pleasure to consist in inaction, which the world regards as great pain. Thus it has been said, “Perfect happiness is the absence of happiness; perfect renown is the absence of renown.” Now in this sublunary world of ours it is impossible to assign positive and negative absolutely. Nevertheless, in inaction they can be so assigned. Perfect happiness and preservation of life are to be sought for only in inaction. Let us consider. Heaven does nothing; yet it is clear. Earth does nothing; yet it enjoys repose. From the inaction of these two proceed all the modifications of things. How vast, how infinite is inaction, yet without source! How infinite, how vast, yet without form! The endless varieties of things around us all spring from inaction.
