“There has been more bloodshed in the name of God than for any other cause. And it is all because people never attempt to reach the fountain-head. They are content only to comply with the customs of their forefathers and instructions on some books, and want others to do the same.

I didn’t have any perception of time or space. All that there was, was an all- pervading eternity – a state of non-dualism.”
