Religious Thought 205

Sooner or later Fortune or misfortune May befall you. When you know this, You desire nothing, You grieve for nothing. Subduing the senses, You are happy.
- Ashtavakra Gita 11:3

Arouse your will, supreme and great, Practice love, give joy and protection; Let your giving be like space, Without discrimination or limitation. Do good things, not for your own sake But for all the beings in the universe; Save and make free everyone you encounter, Help them attain the wisdom of the way.
- Prajnaparamita

O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as narrated by Anas, as related by At-Tirmidhi

“One filled with joy preaches without preaching.”

- Mother Teresa

There is a single Jewish worldintertwined, interconnected.
- Ralph I. Goldman, Statement, May 1979
