Mr. Blaise Scavullo: What is the difference between following your path and practising the Hindu religion?Sri Chinmoy: Mine is a path and Hinduism is a religion. Anybody can walk along a path irrespective of his religious background or religious belief. I was born of a Hindu family. But by practising Yoga I transcended my family religion. Then, through self-discovery, I have far transcended not only the Hindu religion but all religions. At the same time, through the practice of Yoga and self-discovery, I have acquired in myself the quintessence of all religions: love of God, love of Truth.
