Will other and greater Prophets come? Certainly they will come in this world. But do not look forward to that. I should better like that each one of you became a Prophet of this real New Testament, which is made up of all the Old Testaments. Take all the old messages, supplement them with your own realizations, and become a Prophet unto others. Each one of these Teachers has been great; each has left something for us; they have been our Gods. We salute them, we are their servants; and, all the same, we salute ourselves; for if they have been Prophets and children of God, we also are the same. They reached their perfection, and we are going to attain ours now. Remember the words of Jesus : “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” This very moment let everyone of us make a staunch resolution: “I will become a Prophet, I will become a messenger of Light. I will become a child of God, nay, I will become a God!”
(p.134, Vol.4, Complete Works of Swami Vivekanada, Swamiji in his lecture ‘The Great Teachers of the World’ delivered at California on 3 Feb, 1900)
Follow the spiritual path in right earnest. When the mind becomes pure though sadhana you will understand all the truths of the spiritual world. Remember, there is no end to them; they are countless.
(p.177, Eternal Companion, Swami Brahmananda’s words on 3 Feb, 1921 in Varanasi.)
