„I have always been guided by texts especially intimate to me and carrying an existential meaning. This is the root reaching especially deep which, however, lifts me higher – it is basically the fruit that has been nurturing the world for centuries. Looking at the two milleniums, we realize that people have little changed - that is why I consider the sacred texts very topical. From this point of view, there is no major difference between yesterday, today or tomorrow as there are always eternal verities.“
