Hinduism : Part-15.
Monotheism and Polytheism Reconciled
That experience is peace, that experience is unutterable bliss, that experience is silence—a depth of silence where no articulate words are possible.
For that experience this rare gift of the human status has been given.
That is what makes it the most supreme of all gifts in spite of all things that may seem to be the contrary of peace and bliss.
It is what makes the supreme gift of our human status unparalleled in value.
Knowing this to be so, may we apply ourselves with all earnestness, with total sincerity, with humility and determination.
May we apply ourselves to making the highest and best use of this status, and thus putting it to the highest use attain the highest joy.
May this be the quest, and may full success be granted.
May the quest cease to be, and may the experience absolute prevail in all its fullness at all times.
To be established ever in that great experience is the vision of the ancients of this country, where God-realisation was declared to be the highest of all goals of humanity.
