Modernism

“As on a gigantically raised stage we witness the struggle between two worlds, which may be interpreted, according to the standpoint of the spectator, either as a struggle between the past and the future, between backwardness and progress, belief and science, superstition and knowledge – or as the struggle between spiritual freedom and material power, between wisdom of the heart and knowledge of the brain, between the dignity of the human individual and the herd- instinct of the mass, between the faith in the higher destiny of man through inner development and the belief in material prosperity through an ever-increasing production of goods. “

-Lama Anagarika Govinda
