The Ideology of Swami Dayanand (May 2004)
There is lot of good literature available on the net on Swami Dayananda Saraswati and his teachings. However, one site, http://www.tankara.com/, stands apart. Please take your time to visit this site.
To speak of, write about, and believe in a thing as it is constitutes Truth.
The human soul possesses the capacity for ascertaining truth.
Differences among the learned create bad blood among the ignorant masses.
Finding solace in the belief that in the end truth must prevail and not error and
that it is the path of rectitude alone that men of learning and piety have always trodden,
true teachers never become indifferent to the promotion of public good
and never give up the promulgation of truth.
Every thing calculated to the advancement of Knowledge and Righteousness
is like poison to begin with, but like Nectar in the end.
Though we were born in Aryavarta ( India ) and still live in it,
yet just as we do not defend the evil doctrines and practices of the religions
prevailing in our own country-rather expose them fully-in like manner
we deal with alien religions. We treat the foreigners in the same as we
treat our own countrymen in recognition of our common Humanity.
He alone can fitly be called a man who being strong, protects
the weak. He that injures others in order to gain his selfish
ends, can be only be called a veritable animal.
We consider it the first and the foremost duty of every man
to publish and propagate Truth without fear or favor.
