Religious Thought 247

One who has attained complete discrimination between the subtlest level of mind and the Self has no higher knowledge to acquire. This is dharma megha samadhi--the state of the Unclouded Truth.
- The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 4:29

Body impermanent like spring mist; mind insubstantial like empty sky; thoughts unestablished like breezes in space. Think about these three points over and over.
- Adept Godrakpa, "Hermit of Go Cliffs"

Knowledge is light; avarice ice. Knowledge is water; this world dirt. A trickle of wisdom appears from beyond to check the vices of this world. Should the trickle become abundant, none would endure, be it virtue or vice.
- Rumi

“Some people pray just to pray and some people pray to know God. ”

- Andrew Murray

While Judaism in its entirety is for the Jew, its creed and its ethics are for mankind.
- Morris Joseph, "Judaism as Creed and Life"
