Chapter 1: Knowledge and Understanding

Man is a journey, a journey to the infinite. Nietzsche has said, “Man’s greatness is this: he is the bridge, not the destination.” I say the same thing.

When I look into myself do you know what I realize? I realize that salvation is nearer to me than the ground under my feet.

The physical body is a sacred temple. Instead of fighting with it, go inside; the path to God lies through it. The body is a place of holy pilgrimage; God has chosen it as his abode. The true seeker after spiritual perfection acknowledges his body, cooperates with it in gratitude and directs all its energies towards the ultimate merger with the universal soul.
