Religious Thought 137

It is a fool who blames the sun for his own blindness.The scriptures even proclaim aloud: There is in truth no creation and no destruction; no one is bound, no one is seeking Liberation, no one is on the way to Deliverance. There are none Liberated. This is the absolute truth. My dear disciple, this, the sum and substance of all the Upanishads, the secret of secrets, is my instruction to you.
- Shankaracharya

The mind is like the wick of a lamp illumined only through its own radiance.
- Milarepa, "Drinking the Mountain Stream"

Knowledge has two wings. Conjecture is one wing. Conjecture alone is lacking and cuts short the flight. The one-winged bird continues to struggle, hoping to reach the nest somehow with one wing. And then wisdom shows his shining face. Delivered from conjecture, the bird now spreads both wings (and soars once again).
- Rumi

Forgiveness creates an obligation for which there are no exceptions allowed.
- Giovanni Papini, "The Life of Christ"

Every glory and wonder, every deep mystery and all beautiful wisdom are hidden in the Torah, sealed up in her treasures.
- Nahmanides, Commentary on Pentateuch
