There is no fire like greed and no crime like hatred. There is no sorrow like being bound to this world; there is no happiness like freedom.
May my life merge in the Immortal When my body is reduced to ashes. O mind, meditate on the eternal Brahman. Remember the deeds of the past. Remember, O mind, remember.
- Isha Upanishad
The Cabala describes ten sefirothabstract attributes of divine energy underlying creation, each of which is associated with angels: Foundation, Splendor, Eternity, Beauty, Power, Grace, Knowledge, Wisdom, Understanding, and Crown.
