THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND UNITY OF TRUTH
Spiritual practices are like bullock carts. While all may take us somewhere, they are hardly all on the same level or all equally recommended for travel.

For example, while the giving of charity can be good (it can also be evil if it is based upon an attempt to convert others), it cannot take us to the ultimate reality, which requires meditation. Charity and meditation example, the eating of meat is tamasic or dulling to the mind. That one's religion may sanction or encouragement-eating does not stop it from dulling the mind. 

To promote universality we should not feel impelled to give people the impression that discrimination in their actions is not required. Otherwise we are merely encouraging people to follow the religion that most caters to their prejudices, not the one which encourages real spiritual growth.
