“It is in love that religion exists and not in ceremony, in the pure and sincere love in the heart.”

  • “This is the gist of all worship — to be pure and to do good to others.”
  • “All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.”

A disciple of the Indian mystic Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda was India’s first spiritual and cultural ambassador to the West. In the late 19th century he spread the ancient teachings of Hinduism, the oneness of all religions, and promoted the ideal of service to humanity as a way of worship.
