Question: How can we as individuals encourage a worldwide recognition of the basic unity of all major religions?
Sri Chinmoy: There is only one way we can encourage a worldwide recognition of the basic unity of all major religions. First we have to become perfect ourselves as individuals. If we become real God-lovers and all the time serve God in humanity, then our perfection will encourage and inspire others to become perfect. When we become perfect, automatically our perfection will permeate the votaries of other religions. No matter which religion we belong to, if we can become perfect then our perfection will spread the fragrance of the divinity-flower that is meant for everyone to appreciate and to grow into. Once everyone grows into his own divinity-flower, then everyone will see and feel the basic unity of all religions, which lies in their worship of the ultimate Truth in life.
