World and going beyond it - anand krishna
"do not mistake the raft for the shore. I do not say that rafts are not important. They are, but once you reach the shore, a raft is required no longer"
"Yet you must not cling to it. For shore is ur destiny, a raft takes u to ur destiny. Religions are like rafts. Rafts of different sizes, different colors, different shapes, perhaps differents speeds even, yet all of them serve one, only one and the same purpose - that of taking u across Samsara, the ocean of life and death"
"don’t waste ur time in arguing over whose raft is better. Ur arguments prove ur ignorance, U have not seen the other shore as yet; u have never been there. Once u get there, u will regret that u ever argued over such petty things"
