Still greater he, in whom the Self Divine has slain the very knowledg

How can we use the knowledge that we have learned in the past life in this life? Well, the present time is more important than the past. If in the present life, we are enlightened, by a Master, the future is no more problem. And the past is also disconnected. Otherwise, we’d have so many lives on Earth, and so many past records, we can’t correct them all. What is Tao? “Tao” is like you say, the Ki

He knows our fondness for the petty, and so he never told us, ‘You can attain Buddhahood.’ Instead he explained to us how we could become free of outflows, carry out the Lesser Vehicle and be voice-hearer disciples. Then the Buddha commanded us to preach the Supreme Way and explain that those who practice this will be able to attain Buddhahood. We received the Buddha

All this is rather in the province of something which we may call the Animate. Now this Animate might be merely the body as having life: it might be the Union of Soul and body: it might be

Though their teachings appear to contradict, their meaning is one. Separation exists in their outward form only; in inner purpose they all agree. The great saints have seen for themselves, not by proof and rote, but face to face and unveiled, that all pe
