God and Religion
Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center
To speak metaphorically, God is in the center of a circle, the circumference of which is the universe. The various radii from the circumference to the center are the various religions. The points on the radii near the circumference are distinctly and widely apart from each other; but as they approach the center, they come increasingly close to each other. In the same way, the more a person becomes spiritually minded, or advances towards God, the more tolerant he becomes and the less differentiation he sees.
– “Sparks of the Truth”, p91
“The various religions are like patent medicines. Just as it is necessary to approach a specialist for a speedy and radical cure, so it is imperative to approach a spiritual Master in order to become spiritually perfect.”
(“Sparks of the Truth”, p91)
