SOME KEY QUOTATIONS FROM  
THE SACRED BOOKS OF ANCIENT INDIA

THE VISION OF REINCARNATION:
JUDGMENT DAY IN ANCIENT INDIAN RELIGIOUS THOUGHT

Samsara, the transmigration of life, is directly related to the intentions of the mind.  Thus, it is important to keep the mind pure because a man will become what he thinks.  Maitra Upanishad

Those who believe that there is no life after death will fail again and again.  They will be born over and over again.  They shall fall over and over again into my jaws. (Statement of the King of Death from the Katha Upanishad.)

A DEFINITION OF THE CREATION

As a thousand sparks come forth from a fire, so too does an infinite number of souls come forth from the power of God.    Mundaka Upanishad   

THE ARCHITECTURE OF FEAR IN LIFE

 Through fear of Brahman, the sun shines and the wind blows.  Through fear of him, Indra, the god of rain and Agni, the god of rain and Yama, the god of death, perform their tasks.   Taittiriya Upanishad

THE IMPORTANCE OF CHARITY 

The wealth of a generous and compassionate man never wastes away, but the miser has none to console him.  He who possessed of food, hardens his heart against the weak man, hungry and suffering, who comes to him for help ... surely he finds none to console him. Rig Veda 10.117. 1-4

One should give even from a scanty store to him who asks.  Buddhism Dhammapada 224
