Comment on Article

A man of spiritual repute came to the Master and said, "I cannot pray, I cannot understand the Scriptures, I cannot do the exercises that I prescribe to others.

"Then give it all up," said the Master cheerfully.

"But how can I? I am supposed to be a holy man and have a following in these parts."

Later the Master said with a sigh: "Holiness today is a name without a reality. It is only genuine when it is a reality without a name."
