Religious Thought 235

- Bhagavad Gita 2:52-53

There are two kinds of happiness. There is that of the uncommitted life of sensual pleasures, and there is that of the committed life, one of going forth to a new consciousness. Of these, the happiness of going forth is greater.
- Anguttara Nikaya

Stop talking! What a shame you have no familiarity with inner silence! Polish your heart for a day or two: make that mirror your book of contemplation.
- Rumi
- Mathnawi [VI, 1286-1287]

“And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd. ”
