If jesus could reach Chrsthood, if Siddhartha Gautama could reach Buddhahood, Vivekananda argued, each one can attain the higest if he or she so desires:

" If a thing happens once, it can happen again, we too can do so. If we cannot becom...e perfect here and now, we never can in any state or heaven or condition we may imagine. "

" What has it to do with you that Moses saw God in a burning bush ? The fact that Moses saw God in burning bush does not constitute your seeing him, does it ? If it does, then the fact that Moses ate is enough for you, you ought to stop eating. One is just a sensible as the other."

" It is not the study of external nature that makes [ one ] strong - But there is the internal nature of man - a million times more powerful than any volcanic eruption or any law of nature - which conquers nature, triumphs over all its laws, And that alone teaches man what he is."

- Swami Vivekananda
