    The essence of the all is the godhead of the true

    Hi,

    What does it mean?

    These initiates can recognize
    each other not by the individuality of their garb but by an exchange of
    avowals. On meeting, the first must intone, "The essence of the all is
    the godhead of the true." The proper response to this is, "The vision
    of visions heals the blindness of sight." Thus is the spiritual handshake
    effected.
    It come from a book.

    Re: The essence of the all is the godhead of the true

    Without context, I would have to say it is a description of the way new arrivals at a Buddhist monastery greet one another by showing their devotion to their scriptures. The content of the quotation would not be easy to explain, except perhaps as a simplification: the order of the universe is goodness in and of itself, and we do not seek to find God in an individual being, but in that Order.
