Knowledge of oneness is virtue – Swami Vivekananda

Doing good to others is virtue (Dharma); injuring others is sin.

Strength and manliness are virtue; weakness and cowardice are sin.

Independence is virtue; dependence is sin.

Loving others is virtue; hating others is sin.

Faith in God and in one’s own Self is virtue; doubt is sin.

Knowledge of oneness is virtue; seeing diversity is sin.

The different scriptures only show the means of attaining virtue.

— Swami Vivekananda, Complete Works, 5:419
