Only those who are pure and self-controlled can find ths world of Brahman. That world is theirs alone. In that world, in all worlds, they live in perfect freedom.

Election 2013: How the Pope is Decided

With the recent surprising resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, a whole new election process must take place to fill his shoes.
Benedict XVI’s reign has had many ups and downs. Considered a champion of traditional Christian values, he has stuck to his guns and faced many problems of the church head on like the child abuse scandal. Although, his past has had trouble escaping him. A mandatory member of Hitler’s Youth and later a german soldier during the end of the second world war, Benedict has had his fair share of hurdles in the lime light.
It has been almost 600 years since the last pope resigned. Whether it was for health reasons as stated or hidden inner-church drama doesn’t matter, the real concern should be in who will replace him. Will another strict traditional catholic replace him or are they considering a younger, more open-minded leader?

Religious Thought 156

Self-important, obstinate, swept away by the pride of wealth, they ostentatiously perform sacrifices without any regard for their purpose. Egotistical, violent, arrogant, lustful, angry, envious of everyone, they abuse my presence within their own bodies and in the bodies of others.
- Bhagavad Gita 16:1318

Living in forests far away from other people is not true seclusion. True seclusion is to be free from the power of likes and dislikes. It is also to be free from the mental attitude that one must be special because one is treading the path. Those who remove themselves to far forests often feel superior to others. They think that because they are solitary they are being guided in a special way and that those who live an ordinary life can never have that experience. But that is conceit and is not help to others. The true recluse is one who is available to others, helping them with affectionate speech and personal example.
- Prajnaparamita
