“All Souls are alike and potentially divine. None is Superior or Inferior.”



“Have compassion towards all living beings. Hatred leads to destruction.”



“A man is seated on top of a tree in the midst of a burning forest. He sees all living beings perish. But he doesn’t realize that the same fate is soon to overtake him also. That man is a fool.”
