“Give way to your natural human urges; the urge to give, the urge to share, the urge to make sacrifices for others; the urge to knowledge and the natural urge to peace.”
Swami Veda shows how this urge has successfully manifested itself throughout the history of all religions and nations and still continues to do so. What appears to be wrong with the world can be easily righted by applying more widely the principles manifesting themselves in what is already right with the world.
The centers and disputants will learn the art of merger of diverse faces of truth, each one learning to stand where the opponent stood and shall espouse the other’s cause against one’s own will.
It is my hope that after reading this book we will have a greater understanding not only of what is right with the world, but how the beauty of that right is ready to be applied to beautify what has taken on an ugly appearance.
—Swami Veda Bharati
