In dark night live those for whom The world without alone is real; in night Darker still, for whom the world within Alone is real. The first leads to a life Of action, the second to a life of meditation. But those who combine action with meditation Cross the sea of death through action And enter into immortality Through the practice of meditation. So have we heard from the wise.
– Isha Upanishad
When anything assumes the strength of a creed, it becomes self-sustained and derives the needed support from within.
– Mahatma Gandhi, 1928
