A Quote by Katha Upanishad on spirituality, upanishad, soul, life, peace, and hinduism

Know the self to be sitting in the chariot, the body to be the chariot, the intellect the charioteer, and the mind the reins. The senses they call the horses, the objects of the senses their roads. When he (the Highest Self) is in union with the body, the senses, and the mind, then wise people call him the Enjoyer.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on religion, gandhi, mahatma, true, hinduism, and error

After long study and experience, I have come to the conclusion that
(1) all religions are true; (2) all religions have some error in
them; (3) all religions are almost as dear to me as my own Hinduism,
in as much as all human beings should be as dear to one as one's own
close relatives.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by Anon on mahabharata, hinduism, and golden rule

Do not to others what ye do not wish
Done to yourself; and wish for others too
What ye desire and long for, for yourself.
This is the whole of righteousness, heed it well.

We're all afloat in a boundless sea, and the way we cope is by massing together in groups and pretending in unison that the situation is other than it is.  We reinforce the illusion for each other.  That's what a society really is, a little band of humanity huddled together against the specter of a pitch black sea.  Everyone is treading water to keep their heads above the surface even though they have no reason to believe that the life they're preserving is better than the alternative they're avoiding.  It's just that one is known and one is not.  Fear of the unknown is what keeps everyone busily treading water.  All fear is fear of the unknown.  If someone in such a group of water-treaders betrays the group lie by speaking the truth of their situation, that person is called a heretic, and society reserves its most awful punishments for heretics.  If someone decides to stop struggling and just sink or float away, every possible effort is made to stop him, not for the benefit of the individual, but for the benefit of the group.  To deny at all costs the truth of the situation.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on hinduism, buddhism, non-duality, reality, and spirituality

Content with getting what arrives of itself. Passed beyond the pairs, free from envy, not attached to success or failure. Even acting, he is not bound. He is recognized as eternally free, who neither loathes nor craves; For he that is freed from the pairs, is easily freed from conflict.
