The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self

In the second century B.C, the great Indian sage Patanjali wrote, “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

“Albert Einstein seemed to agree. He said, “The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self.”
