Quotes Dr S Radhakrishnan

Any form of worship which falls short of complete self-naughting will not take us to the unitive life. Faith, devotion, surrender are the means to it.

In a sense all life is from God, all prayer is made by the help of God’s grace, but the heights of contemplation which are scaled by few are attributed in a special degree to divine grace.Dr S Radhakrishnan(Source: From the introduction to The Principal Upanishads by Dr S Radhakrishnan)
