Return to the Universal Religion
Humanity must give up its attachment to exclusive
creeds and once more seek the original and true universal religion
that comprehends all cosmic principles. In this regard Veda Dharma,
which understands not only the role of the Creator, but also the
Absolute and the laws of karma and rebirth, can be a great aid. Veda
Dharma sets forth all yogic paths in great detail to accommodate all
the different levels and types of individuals.
It is a good vehicle to aid in the development of
a universal spiritual science and a good point of synthesis for both
the religious and scientific seeking of truth. Veda
Dharma does not demand an exclusive belief or set up a standard of
faith that no one is allowed to challenge or to question. It directs
us to freedom as a state of consciousness, not to any lesser goals
of time, place or person. It is not an organized and stereotyped
belief but a set of spiritual resources that everyone can draw upon.
This extolling of Vedic Dharma,
however, I realize is my personal opinion and I hold to it strongly.
However, I don't think that it should be imposed upon anyone by
force, propaganda, or any type of threats or rewards, however
subtle. Human beings must come
to truth of their own accord, in one form or another, in one life or
another, and will do it by stages, sometimes fitfully. Vedic Dharma
upholds the freedom of each soul to find truth, using reason,
experience and communication and following methods of ritual, mantra
and meditation - and, above all, starting from a foundation of
respect for all life.
