"What we need today is to know that there is a God, and
that we can see and feel Him here and now. We want
everything but God, because our ordinary desires are
fulfilled by the external world. So long as our needs
are confined within the limits of the physical universe,
it is only when we have had hard blows in our lives and
are disappointed with everything here that we feel the
need for something higher; then we seek God.
Religion can be relished. Are you ready? Do you want it?
You will get realization if you do, and then you will be
truly religious. Until you have attained realization,
there is no difference between you and atheists. The
atheists are sincere, but the man who says that he
believes in religion and never attempts to realize it is
Religion deals with the truths of the metaphysical
world, just as
chemistry and the other natural sciences deal with the
truths of the
physical world. Each soul is a star, and all stars are
set in that infinite azure, that eternal sky, the Lord.
There is the root, the reality, the real individuality
of each and all. Religion began with the search after
some of these stars that had passed beyond you horizon,
and ended in finding them in God, and ourselves in the
Take religion from human society and what will remain?
Nothing but a
forest of brutes. Sense-happiness is not the goal of
humanity; wisdom is the goal of all life.
Can religion really accomplish anything? It can. It
brings to man eternal life. It has made man what he is
and will make of this human animal, a God. That is what
religion can do. The ideal of all religions, all sects,
is the same-the attaining of liberty, thecessation of
Not a drop will be in the ocean, not a twig in the
deepest forest, not a crumb in the house of the god of
wealth, if the Lord is not merciful. Streams will be in
the desert and the beggar will have plenty if He wills
it. He seeth the sparrow's fall. Are these but words or
literal, actual life?
These prophets were not unique; they were men as you or
I. They were
great Yogis. They had gained this super-consciousness,
and you and I
can get the same. They very fact that one man ever
reached that state, proves that it is possible for every
man to do so. Not only is it possible, but every man
must, eventually, get to that state, and that is
Religions of the world have become lifeless mockeries.
What the world wants is character. The world is in need
for those whose life is one burning love, selfless. That
love will make every word tell like thunderbolt....
If there is ever to be a universal religion, it must be
one which will have no location in place or time; which
will be infinite like the God it will preach, and whose
sun will shine upon the followers of Krishna and of
Christ, on saints and sinners alike; which will not be
Brahminic or Buddhistic, Christian or Mohammedan, but
the sum total of all these, and still have infinite
space for development; which in its catholicity will
embrace in its infinite arms, and find a place for,
every human being, from the lowest groveling savage not
far removed from the brute, to the highest man towering
by virtues of his head and heart almost above humanity,
making society stand in awe of him and doubt his human
nature. It will be a religion which will have no place
for persecution or intolerance in its polity, which will
recognize divinity in every man and woman, and whose
whole scope, whose whole force, will be centered in
aiding humanity to realize its own true, divine nature.
What I want to propagate is a religion that will be
equally acceptable to all minds; it must be equally
philosophic, equally emotional, equally mystic, and
equally conducive to action. And this combination will
be the ideal of the nearest approach to a universal
religion. Would to God that all men were so constituted
that in their minds all these elements of philosophy,
mysticism, emotion, and of work were equally present in
full! That is the ideal, my ideal of a perfect man.
Everyone who has only one or two of these elements of
character, I consider "one-sided"; and this world is
almost full of such "one-sided" men, with knowledge of
that one road only in which they move; and anything else
is dangerous and horrible to them. To become
harmoniously balanced in all these four directions is my
ideal of religion....
Hindus accept every religion, praying in the mosque of
the Mohammedans, worshipping before the fire of the
kneeling before the cross of the Christians, knowing
that all the religions, from the lowest fetishism to the
highest absolutism, mean
so many attempts of the human soul to grasp and realize
the infinite, each determined by the conditions of its
birth and associations, and each of them marking a stage
of progress. We gather all these flowers and bind them
with the twine of love, making a wonderful bouquet of
Religion is realization; not talk, nor doctrine, nor
theories, however beautiful they may be. It is being and
becoming, not hearing or acknowledging; it is the whole
soul becoming changed into what it
This life is short, the vanities of the world are
transient, but they alone live who live for others, the
rest are more dead than alive.
Be you holy and, above all, sincere and do not for a
moment give up
your trust in the Lord and you will see the light.
Whatever is truth will remain for ever; whatever is not,
none can preserve. Whatever others think or do, lower
not your standard of purity, morality, and love of God.
No one who loves God need fear any jugglery. Holiness is
the highest and divinest power in earth and in heaven.
"Truth alone triumphs, not untruth. Through truth alone
is opened the way to God." Do not care for a moment who
joins hands with you or not, be sure that you touch the
hand of the Lord."
