Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

One is liberated from ignorance and the ignorant belief that some actions are high and others low or menial; that some actions yield auspicious and others in-auspicious fruits.
So, if my heart is not open, even if God stood in front of me and taught me, I would not pay any attention.
I would ask a million questions and demand an identification card, "How do I know that you are God, and not an impostor?"
Unless I am receptive, nothing is of any use; and if I am receptive, everything is of use.
Isn't that sample!
It is only now that there are millions of people who call themselves Buddhists, millions of people who call themselves Christians, millions of people who call themselves Hindus.
But, how many people recognized that Buddha was enlightened, how many people recognized that Jesus was Jesus Christ, how many people recognizes that Krishna was an incarnation of God? Very few.
If there were half a dozen fanatic devotees, there were also a dozen fanatic critics.
During their own lifetimes they were not recognized as they are recognized now.
That is obvious.
