THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND UNITY
Truth is One and there are many possible approaches to it does not mean that all religions
must be true to the same degree.
That there is some aspect of Truth in all religions does not mean that all that is done in
the name of religion is worthy of respect, or that Truth abides only in religions. There
is much falsehood in what we call religion that it would be a sin against Truth to
accommodate. In addition there are aspects of Truth which are outside of religion in
domains of art, science, philosophy and so on-and the whole world of Nature reflects the
presence of the Divine. What we call religion in this world neither owns, nor dispenses
Truth, whether by any one religion or by all of them put together.
We can compare the unity of religion with unity in other aspects of life. Establishing
unity in a field of knowledge like science does not mean establishing identity between all
scientific theories or removing any questioning. Because justice is one we cannot say that
all the governments of the world are equally good.
