Symbols of the world's religions

To penetrate into the essence of all being and significance, and to release the fragrance of that inner attainment for the guidance and benefit of others,

by expressing in the world of forms
truth, love, purity and beauty — this is the sole game which has any intrinsic and absolute worth.

All other happenings, incidents and attainments in themselves can have no lasting importance.

— Meher Baba
