For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

(St. Matthew, XI. 30)

Allah would make the burden light for you, for man was created weak.


(Quran, IV. 28)

Religion is no sullen Stoicism, no sour Pharisaism; it does not consist in a few melancholy passions, in some dejected looks or depressions of mind: but it consists in freedom, love, life and power; the more it comes to be digested into our lives, the more sweet and lovely we shall find it to be. Those spots and wrinkles which corrupt minds think they see in the face of religion, are indeed nowhere else but in their own deformed and misshapen apprehensions. It is no wonder when a defiled fancy comes to be the glass, if you have an unlovely reflection.

(John Smith the Platonist)

'If a man is so occupied with recollecting Me that he forgets to pray to Me, I grant him a nobler gift than that which I accord to those who petition Me.'

(Hadith Qudsi)

Religion is a matter of experience. Merely by becoming a member of a church, creed or sect, a person cannot be entitled to this experience. By reading many amount of scriptures and sacred books he cannot obtain this experience. By the observance of rites, ceremonies, or worship a man cannot come by this experience. Spiritual realization is a question of individual effort and struggle...The man of true religion when he is on the path, is mainly concerned with his own internal struggle for liberation and peace.

(Swami Ramdas)

At the ultimate point, beyond which you can go no further,
You get to where there are no rules, no standards,
To where thought can accept Impartiality,
To where effect of action ceases,
Doubt is washed away, belief has no obstacle.

(Seng-ts'an)

How long should a devotee perform daily devotions such as sandhya? As long as his hair does not stand on end and his eyes do not shed tears at the name of God.
(Sri Ramakrishna)
