Imitation of Life

‘Do not even try to imitate Buddha or Christ; follow their teaching, understand the essence, the depth and reach of it, and create your own way in relation to your own life. …Your life is unique and your karma is your own… The very attitude of wanting to be free is a mistake…’

‘[Since you are eternal being]..You can live for eternity in this life, starting now, not only after you die.’
