Wisdom from the Major World Relgions

On the theme of: HEALING


The power of the Holy Spirit healeth both physical and spiritual ailments.


The Buddha, the Truly Enlightened One, the unexcelled master physician...having developed and perfected the medicines of the Teaching over countless eons, having cultivated and learned all skills in application of means, and fully consummated the power of illuminating spells, is able to quell all sentient beings' afflictions.
Garland Sutra 37


Why is it thought incredible by any of you that God raises the dead?
Christianity. Bible, Acts 26.8


The union of seed and power produces all things; the escape of the soul brings about change. Through this we come to know the conditions of outgoing and returning spirits.
I Ching, Great Commentary 1.4.2


Whatver defect I have of eye, of heart, of mind,
or whatever excess there is,
may Brishaspati remedy it.
Gracious to us be the Lord of the world.
Yajur Veda 36.2


And among His signs is this: you see the earth barren and desolate, but when We send down rain to it, it is stirred to life and yields increase. Truly, He Who gives life to the dead earth can surely give life to men who are dead. For He has power over all things.
Qur'an 41.39


One who identifies himself with his soul regards bodily transmigration of his soul at death fearlessly, like changing one cloth for another.
Pujyapada, Samadhishataka 77


Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
then shall the lame man leap like a hart,
and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy.
For waters shall break forth in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert.
Bible, Isaiah 35.5-6

The Circle has healing power. In the Circle, we are all equal. When in the Circle, no one is in front of you. No one is behind you. No one is above you. No one is below you. The Sacred Circle is designed to create unity. The Hoop of Life is also a circle. On this hoop there is a place for every species, every race, every tree and every plant. It is this completeness of Life that must be respected in order to bring about health on this planet.
Dave Chief, Oglala Lakota

New Thought

Spiritual matter, or fine interpenetrating substance, directly responsive to thought and subconsciously embodying in the flesh the fears, beliefs, hopes, errors, and joys of the mind.
Phineas P. Quimby

Disease is due to false reasoning in regard to sensations, which man unwittingly develops by impressing wrong thoughts and mental pictures upon the subconscious spiritual matter.
Phineas P. Quimby

As disease is due to false reasoning, so health is due to knowledge of the truth. To remove disease permanently, it is necessary to know the cause, the error which led to it. "The explanation is the cure."
Phineas P. Quimby

To know the truth about life is therefore the sovereign remedy for all ills.
Horatio W. Dresser

The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.
William James


Under the shelter of the Supreme Being, not a whiff of hot air touches us--
All around us is drawn the mystic circle of divine protection,
Keeping away suffering.
We have met the holy Preceptor, perfection incarnate,
Who has established this state.
He has administered medicine of the divine Name,
And attached our devotion to the Sole Lord.
The divine Preserver has preserved us, and all maladies removed.
Says Nanak, In His grace has the Lord come to succor us.
Adi Granth, Bilaval, M.5, p. 819


Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.
Lao Tzu

The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.
Lao Tzu


"Suffer no anxiety, for he who is a sufferer of anxiety becomes regardless of enjoyment of the world and the spirit, and contraction happens to his body and soul."
