And So He Said

"It would be a mere presumption on my part to try to elucidate even a fraction of the marvelous contents of the Sacred Scriptures of the Vedas. If one could transform into paper all the trees and plants of the universe and turn into ink all the waters of the oceans, it would still not be sufficient to write in respect of the Eternal glories, marvels and grandeur of the All Mighty Creator and his Creation. Just as a deep mine of the purest gold cannot be found at the surface level, its rich veins will only reward those who have the patience to carry the lamp of faith for many years, even during times of darkness. If one should maintain firmly that flame of access to the Absolute Truth, until somehow or somewhere, by the Grace of a Great Master or Guru, our inner flame will guide us forward and upward into the presence of the Creator himself, and we find that which is revealed to some and not to others."
-Swami Guru Devanand Saraswati Ji Maharaj
