Dr S Radhakrishnan – Thought Provoking Words

The detachment from the cares of existence, and the absence of tyrannous practical interest, stimulated the higher life of India, with the result that we find from the beginnings of history and impatience of spirit, a love of wisdom and a patience for the saner pursuits of the mind.
The Hindu attitude to the Vedas is one of trust tempered by criticism trust because the beliefs and forms which helped our fathers are likely to be of use to us also; criticism, because however valuable the testimony of the past ages may be it cannot deprive the present age of its right to inquire and sift the evidence.
Precious as are the echoes of God’s voice in the souls of men of long ago; our regard for them must be tempered by the recognition of the truth that God has never finished the revelation of His wisdom and love.
The Hindu never doubted the reality of the one supreme spirit, however much the descriptions of it may fall short of its nature.
