עמוד 151 - While you are not able to serve men, how can you serve their spirits ? ' The disciple added, ' I venture to ask about death/ and he was answered, 'While you do not know life, how can you know about death...
עמוד 10 - Of old, in the beginning," he began,--"Of old in the beginning, there was the great chaos without form, and dark. The five elements had not begun to revolve nor the sun and moon to shine. In the midst thereof there presented itself neither form nor sound. Thou, O spiritual Sovereign! earnest forth in thy presidency, and first didst divide the grosser parts from the purer. Thou madest heaven: Thou madest earth: Thou madest man.
עמוד 56 - Of old, Heaven and Earth were not yet separated, and the In and Yo [or Yin and Yang, female and male principles] not yet divided. They formed a chaotic mass, like an egg, which was of obscurely defined limits and contained germs. The purer and clearer part was thinly drawn out and formed Heaven, while the heavier and grosser element settled down and became Earth.
עמוד 148 - The great ones of the empire had not received his teachings. No wife nor child was by to do the kindly offices of affection for him. Nor were the expectations of another life present with him as he passed through the dark valley. He uttered no prayer, and he betrayed no apprehensions. Deep-treasured in his own heart may have been the thought that he had endeavoured to serve his generation by the will of God, but he gave no sign.
עמוד 248 - God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.
עמוד 188 - What then is Nirvana, which means simply going out, extinction; it being quite clear, from what has gone before, that this cannot be the extinction of a soul ? // is the extinction of that sinful, grasping condition of mind and heart, which would otherwise, according to the great mystery of Karma, be the cause of renewed individual existence.
עמוד 54 - The shocking obscenity of word and act to which the Records bear witness is another ugly feature which must not quite be passed over in silence. It is true that decency, as we understand it, is a very modern product, and is not to be looked for in any society in the barbarous stage. At the same time, the whole range of literature might perhaps be ransacked in vain for a parallel to the naive filthiness of the passage forming Sect.
עמוד 261 - God is a spirit, and that they who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth...
עמוד 89 - For several days they died not, but wept and wailed day and night. At last they died and rotted. Dogs and crows gathered and ate them. " The Emperor, hearing the sound of their weeping and wailing, was grieved in heart, and commanded his high officers, saying : — "It is a very painful thin^ to force those who one has loved in life to follow him in death.
עמוד 262 - Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
