Dharma will compel integration of thought, word and deed. It will cleanse the mind and rid it of greed and hate. Every faith is but an endeavour to cleanse the impulses and emotions, as part of the process of discovering the truth of the world, seen and unseen. No one who has trodden that path and engaged himself in that process has escaped calumny and cruelty. Mohammed, who sought to establish the primacy of the One Formless Absolute, had a large share of persecution, defamation and privation. Jesus attempted to rebuild mankind on the basis of love and was crucified by little men who feared that their tiny towers of hate and greed will be toppled by his teaching. Harischandra, who had resolved never to waver from truth, was subjected to ordeal after ordeal, each more terrifying than the previous one. Those who seek to know God must steel themselves to bear insult, injury and torture with a smile.
