An Enlightened One

An enlightened person is neither interested 
in establishing a religion or sect,
nor in creating a horde of blind followers
who remain involved in performing different lifeless rites and rituals,
trapped in cults and dogmas,
ostentatious sectarian ceremonies and celebrations –
without actually getting the immense benefits
from applying the Dhamma in their lives.
S. N. Goenka
