Postulate: By whichever name you call this phenomenon - karma, Newtons 3rd law or Vishnu, or anything else, the world works on trust. Corollary: Whichever way you contribute - either by keeping or breaking trust, you bear the consequences - hence, always choose wisely. -Atul Nene

असतो मा सद्गमय
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय
मृत्योर्मा अमृतंगमय

Lead us away from illusion (of this world) towards truth
Lead us away from darkness (of ignorance) towards light (of knowledge)
Lead us away from the fear of death to the state of immortality.

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconcious, grow up through the common -- this is my symphony. -William Henry Channing, clergyman, reformer (1810-1884)
