Upadesha Sahasri II.17.4
wise and discriminating people of all lands have sought a Truth
which is Universal and Eternal. Yet this has been the main quest
not only of philosophers and mystics but of all of us in life's
more profound moments. Deep inside ourselves we all long for an
Absolute Truth through which we can transcend suffering and
death and gain bliss and immortality. Many great thinkers,
looking beyond the names and forms of the various religions and
philosophies which have existed through history, have looked for
tradition of knowledge which reflects the Universal Truth and
allows people of every generation to connect with It.
