Welcome To The Religion Network!

I'm Lisa Bowman, editor of The Religion Network, a multi-faith Web site. This site provides inspirational quotes through an
exploration of a new spiritual theme every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Religion network is offered with the
conviction that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and furthermore, that finding the commonalities
among the world's religions is more healing than pointing up their differences.

Religion as an institution is a precious gift, blessing individuals and uplifting communities. However you choose to
worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

Fix your mind inwardly between the eyebrows (as in meditation) on
the shoreless lake of peace. Watch the eternal circle of rippling peace
around you. The more you watch intently, the more you will feel the
wavelets of peace spreading from the eyebrows to the forehead,
from the forehead to the heart, and on to every cell in your body.
Now the waters of peace are overflowing the banks of your body and
inundating the vast territory of your mind. The flood of peace flows over
the boundaries of your mind and moves on in infinite directions.


Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
Leader and founder of Self-Realization Fellowship


___________

Almighty God, the Great Thumb

we cannot evade to tie any knot:

The Roaring Thunder that splits mighty

trees; the all-seeing Lord up on high who

sees even the footprints of an antelope

on a rock mass here on earth.

You are the one who does not hesitate to

respond to our call.

You are the cornerstone of peace.


African prayer


_________

You have come from God, you are a spark of His Glory; you are a
wave of that Ocean of Bliss; you will get peace only when you
again merge in Him.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba (born 1926)
Indian spiritual leader

To be controlled by moods is to be a part of matter.
If you keep your mind on the resolve never to lose
your peace, then you can attain godliness. Keep a
secret chamber of silence within yourself, where you
will not let moods, trials, battles or inharmony enter.
Keep out all hatred, revengefulness and desires.
In this chamber of peace God will visit you.


Paramahansa Yogananda






The Last Word:

Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law.

Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)
A German born in East Prussia and originally raised a Pietist,
(a Lutheran reform movement), Kant is regarded as the last
major philosopher of the Enlightenment.
