Nature’s children / Religious disputes – Hijos de la Naturaleza / Disputas entre las religiones

I am one of Nature’s children…. And wherever I see her, emotions of pleasure roll in my breast, and swell and burst like waves on the shores of the ocean, in prayer and praise to Him who has placed me in her hand. It is thought great to be born in palaces, surrounded with wealth but to be born in Nature’s wide domain is greater still!

– Kahgegagahbowh


It is a great wonder that to teach such a simple truth a number of religions should be necessary, and so many disputes should go on between them as to which is the God-ordained teaching. What a pity! Just be the Self, that is all.

Sri Ramana Maharshi



Soy uno de los hijos de la Naturaleza… y cuando la veo, emociones de placer hinchan mi pecho, y crecen y explotan como olas en las orillas del océano en oración y loa a Aquel que me ha depositado en su mano. Es considerado algo grande nacer en palacios y rodeado de riqueza, pero nacer en el vasto dominio de la Naturaleza es aún más grande.



Es extraordinario que para enseñar una  verdad tan simple tal número de religones fuera necesario, y que tantas disputas sobre cual es la enseñanza ordenada por Dios hubieran de ocurrir entre ellas. !Qué lástima! Sé solamente el Sí; eso es todo.

-Ramana Maharshi
