Your neighbor is in front of you. You neglect him and where are you going to search for God?
God is in your heart.
God is the heart of the other person also.
So finding here through meditation and finding there through seva, that these two go together – this is the Gita teaching.Swami Ranganathananda
Ahmisa is the heart of all stages of life, the core of all sacred texts, and the sum (pinda) and substance (sara) of all vows and virtues.Dulichand Jain, Thus Spake Lord Mahavir
