THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND UNITY OF TRUTH
When I told him that it was my belief that what Christ originally taught was the same as Hinduism, he said that he didn't believe it and interprets the Bible differently. While I attempted to argue some Biblical verses or statements that suggest mysticism in Christianity, he could easily refute them to his own satisfaction. He ultimately said that if the Christianity I accept is the same as Hinduism then it is not the same Christianity that he or other Christians believe in, so why should I call it Christianity at all? This taught me a lesson and showed me the confusion caused by too simplistically equating different religions. 

I have to admit that Christianity as it has developed, and as the great majority of Christians believe, is not something that I, accepting the spiritual teachings of the Hindu tradition, can believe in. I don't think that it is necessary to go to Christian church or to follow common Christian prayers. I can't accept Jesus as my personal savior; in fact I don't see the need of such a savior at all. I certainly don't think that it is necessary to promote conversion of people to Christianity; in fact I think it is usually harmful. I can't look upon Christian leaders like the Pope or Billy Grahman as the ideal religious or spiritual leader or equate them with the great yogis of India.
