Humanity

Much advance publicity was made for the address the Master would deliver on “The Destruction of the World” and a large crowd gathered at the monastery grounds to hear him.

The address was over in less than a minute. All he said was:

“These things
will destroy the human race:
politics without principle,
progress without compassion,
wealth without work,
learning without silence,
religion without fearlessness
and worship without awareness.”

Anthony de Mello, SJ

MORSEL:
He who knows the precepts by heart,
but fails to practice them,
Is like unto one who lights a lamp
and then shuts his eyes.

–Nagarjuna
