"We must make an effort to not be reborn. No birth, no samsara. Such a beautiful idea: Freedom! No punar-janma (rebirth). No disgraceful aging, no graceless aging, no graceful aging. No problem at all. Complete freedom. This is what our scriptures lead us to - complete spiritual enlightenment."
– Swami Tejomayananda
