All worship offered with a pure heart is valid – Swami Dayananda Saraswati

Living begins when one contributes something that will bring about more happiness, more wisdom and more freedom. Until then, one merely drags one’s life.

If I were to choose one aspect of Hinduism, it would be the teaching that God is the only reality, which can be invoked through any name or form. All worship offered with a pure heart is valid. There can be million forms of worship, offered to any name or form that you choose. This is the universal outlook of Hinduism. Hinduism is a very profound religion, not based in simple beliefs. God is to be understood, not just believed in.

The Veda says that you are the whole and that you are already free and you have to know that. Your being away from the whole is by wrong thinking.

Swami Dayananda Saraswati (1930-2015), founder of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, teacher of Vedanta
