DAAY-TO-DAY WITH GANDHI-I
22

     "Only that day dawns to which we are awake"

Thoreau 

   

      " There is no other choice left for a number of people except to resort to ascetic seclusion in a country which has been reduced to the helplessness of a widow, has been squeezed of all its valour and manliness has been bled white and made a skeleton, has been robbed of its pristine glory and has, therefore, sunk into gloom and despair."

"Away with works,
Philosophy too;
All I want
Is bhakti1 for you.
Vanish knowledge,
Discretion too;
All I want
Is bhakti for you."

Tukaram ( a Maharashtrian Saint)

    

     "Like most human things, discipleship has its good and its evil, its strong and its poor and dangerous side; but it really has a good and strong side;— its manly and reasonable humility, the enthusiasm of having and recognising a great master, and doing what he wanted done."

—Dean Church
