Comparative Religion


"As all rivers have the same source - the water underground –
And as the follow different courses, Through different lands,
So all religions lead to God. If you worship me in your own way
With flower, with incense, or pouring out of water –
Each act – When done with purity and prayer –
Will reach my throne
"
- Bhagavat Gita


 

 

"As men approach me, so I receive them. All paths lead to me."

"There can be no doubt that whatever the peoples of the world, of whatever race or religion, they derive their inspiration from one heavenly Source and are the subjects of one God."
-Gleanings from the writing of Baha'ullah 111 (Bahaii)

 


 


"Let it be known that as all water has the same source,
And all flows to the Sea regardless of the river it takes,
So too does all life come from Me
And return to Me
No matter what path one chooses to walk they will find Me,
For all paths lead to Me
I was with you in the beginning
And I am what is attained at the end.
All faiths are faith in Me
All altars are mine
And all offerings made on them reach Me
All prayers are heard regardless of their tongue
So walk the path you choose
And worship Me as you will
I will love all with the same love,
For you are all My children"
