THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND UNITY OF TRUTH
Some Hindus think that it is against Hinduism to criticize other religions and that all the great modern teachers of Hinduism taught a complete equality of all religions. Let them read such teachers as Aurobindo and Vivekananda more carefully, who were quite critical of Christianity and Islam. They both tried to resurrect the ancient Truth of Hinduism and to project it is a modern way. They were not content for their Western disciples to merely continue the religious practices they were already following but inspired them to take on practices that their own religions considered heretical.

Let them note the example of such great sages as Ramana Maharshi, who never visited any churches or mosques, though they existed in the very town wherein he lived, though he did live and do his practices in the local temple for some years. Ramana Maharshi stated that religion in the ordinary sense is only necessary to take us  to a path of Self-realization, after which it can be set aside. This draws into question religions that do not direct us to Self-realization or recognize it as their goal. These teachers saw a unity of truth in the Self of all, but they did not bow down to all the religious institutions and dogmas in the world. Gandhi also frequently criticized Christian missionary activity in India and the Christian dogmas behind it.
