SADara praNAm,
All true seekers realize the same by sincerely treading the path of any
Sriramakrishna, bhagavan Ramana,swami Ramathirtha  and many others has
endorsed this view. But when it comes to the matter of established religion
the interpretation of the revelations of the Master who propounded the
by priests who become the later leaders of the religion gains priority over
sayings. In course of time the established religions gets degraded mainly
they are merely led by the aim of getting the religion established and
partly due to the
selfishness of the leaders. The view of Swami Vivekananda, "kick out the
clearly indicates this. Swamiji has commented on the
faults occurred to Mohammed
 in his yogic sadhana, ofcourse paying glorious tributes to Him.Swamiji
could do this
because the master of Swamiji was non other than Sriramakrishna who really
the path propounded by Mohammed and realized that it also lead to the same
as propounded by many other religions.
The interpretation of the Bible by Sri Paramahansa Yoganandaji,"The
second coming of Christ "
also takes one to this conclusion.To be brief "Christianity and
Churchianity" are entirely
different and Lord Jesus should not crucified for the fault of Churchianity.
Recently there is a trend in western world to tarnish Islam due to the
extremist attitude
of a few who claims to be Muslims.Indians being the Masters of
religions should not
fall into such traps.
