Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth. Life is an aspiration. Its mission is to strive after perfection, which is self‐realization. The ideal must not be lowered because of our weaknesses or imperfection.
Prayer does for the purification of the mind, what the bucket and the broom do for the cleaning up of our physical surroundings. No matter whether the prayer we recite is the Hindu prayer or the Muslim or the Parsee, its function is essentially the same, namely, purification of the heart.
Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
— Mahatma Gandhi
