A Collection of Quotes on Vedanta

"Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy: by one, or more, or all of these -- and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details."
--Swami Vivekananda

Mahatma Gandhi on Hinduism E-mail

I had practiced Hinduism from early childhood. My nurse had taught me to invoke Rama when I feared evil spirits. Later on I had came in contact with Christians, Muslims and others, and after making a fair study of other religions, had stuck to Hinduism. I am as firm in my faith today as in my early childhood.

Swami Vivekananda On Hinduism – Part I E-mail

The Hindu believes that he is a spirit. Him the sword cannot pierce; him the fire cannot burn; him the water cannot melt; him the air cannot dry. The Hindu believes that every soul is a circle whose circumference is nowhere, but whose center is located in the body, and that death means the change of this center from body to body.

Vedanta's Message E-mail

by Swami Vivekananda

All these secret societies and humbugs make men and women impure, weak and narrow; and the weak have no will and can never work. Therefore have nothing to do with them. All this false love of mystery should be knocked on the head the first time it comes into your mind.
