Course in Atmic Realization #282
Swami Vivekananda’s choice of the lion to symbolize the strong and forthgoing spiritual aspirant is apropos to this time. He used to site weakness as the greatest sin. On this wisdom chart are to be found several of his quotes utilizing the lion in this context, blended in with a short list of the main qualities that he favored to bring the soul out of darkness and into the Light of the Atman. The entire flavor and atmosphere here smacks of the noble Vedanta he championed, and the Vedantic aspirant will benefit by seeing this dharma teaching again and again.
