First time I read this it was attributed to a Buddhist holy man; second time it was presented as something a Judaeo-Christian angel said in a vision to a guy who happened to be a Hindu- so it transcends cultures.
When something like this transcends cultures I think it's likely to be true.
I forget when or where I read it first but it was recently. And it made an impression. Second time was this morning and I thought, "I'm clearly meant to take notice of this- so I'll write it down."
