Truth, purity, and unselfishness the real strength of an individual – Swami Vivekananda

Truth, purity, and unselfishness. Wherever these are present, there is no power below or above the sun to crush the possessor thereof. Equipped with these, one individual is able to face the whole universe in opposition.
Be thankful that you are allowed to exercise your power of benevolence and mercy in the world. And thus, become pure and perfect. Be grateful to the man you help, think of him as God. Is it not a great privilege to be allowed to worship God by helping our fellowmen?
This is the gist of all worship - To be pure and to do good to others. He who sees Siva (God) in the poor, in the weak, and in the diseased, really worships Siva, and if He sees Siva only in the image, his worship is but preliminary. He who has served and helped one poor man seeing Siva in him, without thinking of his caste, creed or race, or anything, with him, Siva is more pleased than with the man who sees Him only in church or temples. Swami Vivekananda
