Swami Ranganathananda – Words to Ponder

Belief with most people is simply another name for mental laziness. They cannot understand the meaning of that earnestness that proceeds from an inner spiritual hunger. No dogma, creed, or frenzied acts can satisfy this hunger of a religious heart. Its only bread is spiritual realization. Religion is a matter of inner experience, a getting in touch with spiritual facts of the super sensory levels of experience. Faith in ancient India did not mean a cosy belief in which to find comfort, but a torch by which to set the soul on fire with a longing for spiritual realization. In the absence of this longing and struggle, the belief of the faithful does not differ from the unbelief of the faithless. Swami Ranganathananda
