Quote removed[edit]

The following quote is removed:

The text in the original source goes like:

Then comes the question in the mind of every human being: "What is the form of God?" Rajaji quotes from the Hindu Scriptures that God is unseeable and also has a least seen form. He is the infinite material Universe itself. His form is nothing like anything else known to man or unknown. Modern scientists can only contemplate God in terms of hypothesis, but God cannot be the subject of mere hypothesis...

There is no real quote here mentioned by Rajaji, just an description of his response. -- Mdd (talk) 17:57, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

It is the same story with the following quote:
  • The aim of all men is not mere material prosperity or enjoyment born of sensual pleasures. After all is said and done, Man, being the monarch of all creation, should aim at something nobler than sheer animal existence summed up in living without any objective and dying without any achievement worth the name.
This is just a description at page 94 by the author Ashu Pasricha. -- Mdd (talk) 18:03, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
