Well has it been said that man is the only animal that naturally looks upwards; every other animal naturally looks down. That looking upward and going upward and seeking perfection are what is called salvation; and the sooner a man begins to go higher, the sooner he raises himself towards this idea of truth as salvation.Swami Vivekananda, in The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda/Volume 3/Lectures and Discourses/Unity, the Goal of Religion .
I might be ready to kneel before the cross of Good Friday, to stand beside the sepulcher on Easter Day. In order to facilitate the realization of those last sacred days of God incarnate on earth, working out man’s salvation, I resolved to write a brief history of that week, compiled from Four Gospels, meaning them to try and realize each day the occurrences that had happened on the corresponding day in AD 33, and so to follow those “blessed feet” step by step, till they were nailed for our advantage to the bitter cross.Annie Besant, in “Annie Besant: An Autobiography”, p. 59. .
Purity of character and salvation depend on purity of heart. We should, by living the life according to our lights share the best with one another, thus adding to the sum total of human effort to reach God.Mahatma Gandhi, in A Critique of Gandhi on Christianity .
After this I saw, and look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes; and there were palm branches in their hands. And they keep shouting with a loud voice, saying: “Salvation we owe to our God, who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb.”John the Evangelist, Revelation 7:9, New World Translation .
Faith, faith, faith in ourselves, faith, faith in God, this is the secret of greatness. If you have faith in all the three hundred and thirty millions of your mythological Gods, and in all the Gods which foreigners have now and again introduced into your midst, and still have no faith in yourselves, there is no salvation for you.Swami Vivekananda, in From Colombo to Almora: Being a Record of Swami Vivekanandas Return to India After His Mission .
