“...if I do not take my intellectual vocation seriously, putting it before everything else even at the risk of appearing inhuman, then I am also incapable of helping people in more concrete and proximate ways. Conversely, if I am not alert and ready to save people from a conflagration, that is to say, if I do not take my spiritual calling in all earnestness, sacrificing to it all else, even my own life, then I shall be unable to help in rescuing the manuscript. If I do not involve myself in the concrete issues of my time, and if I do not open my house to all the winds of the world, then anything I produce from an ivory tower will be barren and cursed. Yet if I do not shut doors and windows in order to concentrate on this work, then I will not be able to offer anything of value to my neighbors.”
Raimon Panikkar, The Vedic Experience: Mantrama~njari: An Anthology of the Vedas for Modern Man and Contemporary Celebration

“The concepts of physics-energy, force, mass, number-are as mysterious as the word God. But in physics, even though in many ways we do not know what physical reality is, we nevertheless devise or affirm parameters that permit us to measure regularity or to formulate possible laws in regard to the functioning of physical reality. Such an operation is not possible in regard to God. There are no adequate parameters that would permit us to speak of the "functioning" of that reality we call God.”
Raimon Panikkar, The Experience of God: Icons of the Mystery

“Discourse about God is radically different from every l other discourse on every other subject because God is not an object. Were God to be spoken of as object, God would become nothing more than an idol.”
