THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND UNITY OF TRUTH
The Religion of Truth

The true spirit of universality is the spirit of Truth and Truth does not bow down to personalities, vested interests or names and forms. The true spirit of tolerance is to promote the Truth, not to compromise with falsehood. According to the Upanishads there are two forces in the universe-the knowledge and the ignorance-and these forces move in opposite directions: to the extent that one is pursued, the other is lost. To sanction religious beliefs based on ignorance as valid ways to Truth is a betrayal of Truth.

This does not mean that we should self-righteously condemn the religious practices of others, or that we should say that Truth is limited to our point of view. We must give ourselves and other people the freedom to discover the Truth. But we must see things as they are, and in our communication tell what we perceive as the Truth. Hence if someone asks us what we consider to be the best way to discover Truth we may be doing them a disservice if we direct them back to the religion they are following, if its practices do not lead to Truth or only do so in a very hesitant manner.
