Ancient Sayings from Hindu Dharma

Scriptural compositions are endless. There is great deal to be known. The obstacles are many, but the time available is short. Therefore, the essence of all these must be discerned and pursued vigorously, like swans separating milk mixed with water.
The wise one should accept whatever is reasonable, told even by a child. Anything otherwise, even if stated by Brahma, the creator, is to be summarily rejected like a blade of grass.
Truth alone shall prevail, not falsehood.
Only one exists; sages call it by various names.
Let all meet and think as with one mind. Let all hearts unite in love. Let the goal be common. May all live in happiness with a common purpose.
