"Thought is the most potent and creative power in the world. It initially takes shape in an individual mind. When shared with others, any benevolent thought starts growing as a vibrant process encompassing more and more people. It is such collective benevolent thoughts that build up great cultural values and treasure in the society."

Quotations

“A God-believing person is a believer in the concept of God. An atheist is also a believer, but in the concept of no-God. Both of them are believers. They believe in some concept of their mind. This prior belief stifles their enquiry. A seeker of ultimate Truth should start with no belief.” 

“Why do we look for a Creator of the world? Because, we find that everything in the world follows causality. The causality we see all around makes us think that there must be an ultimate ‘Cause’ (or Creator) behind the universe. That is, the concept of God is basically an “inference” from the causality we observe in the world.

“In fact, it is an invalid ‘extrapolation’ of material causality beyond its domain. Although everything we observe in the material world is related by causality, the Ultimate Truth, by definition, has to be beyond causality. It transcends duality.”
