Spiritual Sages have been saying these long before Buddha.Buddha said it 500 years before Christ.lt is being said today.
Truth is not a book,what you hear or read.Truth is not second hand explaination.You are truth.You have to EXPERIENCE it FIRSTHAND.
Q,THE REASON IT IS RESONATING ON FACEBOOK IS SIMPLE.Qoutes like this bypass the mind.lt t
"talks" to Soul directly.lt touches the heart.You know it is so deep inside you.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.

I don't like this one Kwame :roll:
:lol: :lol: You depend on others like your master and Mahanta,Harold Klemp for your Salvation and liberation from this physical realm yet you are suggesting others not to do the same.Hmmm---Eckankar double standards baffles me. :roll:

Good point raised.l'm surprised salvation is used in the quote.A better word will be liberation.
l'll check this and get back.
l say this because salvation and liberation are not the same.
Below is a quote by Harold Klemp on Salvation.l hope this throws some light here.

"We don't talk about salvation in ECKANKAR,because Soul is never lost.There is no such thing as eternal damnation.That concept is a ploy used by the priestcraft to trap Soul into thinking that salvation can only come through doing whatever they decide is necessary.
Unless you do penance,they claim,you remain guilty of some kind of sin; and even if you haven't done anything wrong lately,there's always the original sin.So one way or another,Soul is stuck,and the most you can do is try to get through this life as sinlessly as possible,hoping to repent before you die and are trapped in some hell"


Liberation,Spiritual Freedom is what is talked about in the ECK teaching.You walk the path to enlightenment yourself.You do not depend on no one.The Master is a way shower.You walk the path.He shows the way.Whether you take it or not is entirely up to you.
The Master is not a way pusher or way dragger.He simply shows the way.
With the little knowledge l have about Buddha,l think his quote above is saying enlightenment will come to you by your own effort and not by depending on another.
Buddha was a Hindu the same way Jesus was a Jew.He "modernised" hinduism,giving it a universal appeal thus creating Buddhism.lt can be argued that 500 years after this,Jesus did the same to Judaism.
l believe these factors should be taken into consideration when looking at Buddha's quotes or sayings.He was pointing out whats wrong with the old religion and how to embrace a fresh or renewed consciousness.
l think the point you raised is a genuine one.But l think the word salvation is problematic here.lt be down to translation and the poor nature of the english language when it comes to precision.Buddha spoke Pali,or sanskrit.Karma is a sanskrit word.Do u know there is hardly a word that stands for karma in the english language?You have to use a collection of words to explain karma.
Lastly,what anyone decides to spent his lifetime doing is that person's business ;to put it kindly.l have enough on my plate to concern myself with in this lifetime.
lm not a Buddhist.lm an ECKist.
