Our greatest gift to ourselves is the discovery of divinity within ourselves – Swami Bhaskarananda

A spiritually illumined soul lives in the world, yet is never contaminated by it.
Our greatest gift to ourselves is the discovery of divinity within ourselves.
The Self forms the very core of man's being. It is different from his physical body, vital energy, senses and mind.
Any religion can be compared to the attic of an old home. Unless the attic is regularly cleaned, it gathers dust and cobwebs and eventually becomes unusable. Similarly, if a religion cannot be updated or cleaned from time to time, it loses its usefulness and cannot relate anymore to changed times and people.
Man's ego is not this Self. The ego or I-ness is an idea only; it is purely created by the mind and it cannot be the Self.
Behind the psychophysical man is the Self, which is divine.
Swami Bhaskarananda of Ramakrishna Mission
