Swami Nishchalananda Saraswati Thoughts

In its grandest conception, the divine is beyond all distinctions.

Differences, whether they are rooted in race, class or gender is not divinely ordained.

Samanya Dharma, or common rules of conduct, apply to individuals in their relationship whether as daughters and sons, spouse or sibling – all of them are governed by rules that demand sheel and sneh, common courtesy and cleanness of conduct; seva bhav, sense of service; vinay politeness and sahanbhuti and karuna or empathy and compassion.
