The following things have been declared and ascertained by all the Sacred Scriptures of the world to be the greatest good to mankind;

First – To delight in the Self which to is to love God and be one with Him

Second- To be without attachments to anything else in the universe.

Religion is not for the purpose of securing a place in Heaven. It is an inquiry into Truth, and its ideal is the knowledge and the realization of the Truth. This True Love and non-attachment can be developed gradually by these means:

-By inquiry into the Truth with complete faith and reverence.

-By devotion to spiritual practices.

-By rendering of services to the great souls who have realized The Truth.

-By taking delight in the company of the exalted ones

-By avoiding association of the worldly-minded.

-By learning to love solitude.

-By injuring no creature by truthfulness.

-By studying the Scriptures (Knowledge of The Self)

-By control of the senses through Pranayama.(Deep breathing )

-By overcoming passions through right knowledge and discrimination.

-By respecting all other religions and not speaking against them

-By singing the praises and the Glory of Divinity.

-By patiently bearing the opposites in life, such as pain and pleasure , success and failure.

Thus will arise Love for The divine and non-attachment to the world.

- The Srimad Bhagavatam
( The sacred scripture of Hinduism full of Vedic wisdom, considered to be The Hindu Bible)
