Seeking The Essence

Clearing Life's Webs and Weeds….

Pathways To Bliss

Pathways to Bliss Joseph Campbell    

“When people get excited about the Orient and begin putting on turbans and saris, what they’ve gotten caught in is the folk aspect of the wisdom that they need.  You’ve got to find the wisdom, not the clothing of it. Through those trappings, the myths of other cultures, you can come to a wisdom that you’ve then got to translate into your own.” Joseph Campbell, from the introduction to Pathways to Bliss.

“Krishna Consciousness is not an artificial imposition on the mind….When one is factually on the plane of spiritual understanding, surpassing the stages of sense, mind and intelligence, one is situated on the transcendental plane. Srila Prabhupada, from the introduction to On Chanting Hare Krishna.
