The fulfilment of the outer beauty

And all the stars in the sky

Are for religion's sake."


- Walt Whitman

To illumine the life

Of humanity."

85.

Every day

I am blossoming and growing

In the faith-blossoming garden

86.

My religion

For its glorious

Life-history.


87.

God asks

My religion

Only for its soulful

Life-song.


88.

God has abundantly blessed me

And

My religion

To be always on the road

Of His very special Will.


89.

Not only my religion,

But all the true religions

Have come to the same conclusion:

Forgiveness-Fountain.

Of God's Will.


92.

When I observe

Happily and proudly

All my religion-duties,

God welcomes me to enjoy

The fellowship of the angels

And archangels.


93.

When my religion

And I together

Bend our heads to Mother Earth,

God says to us:

"Come, come, My Heart-Home

Is expecting you."


94.

The haughtiness of my head

Fails,

But the humility of

Is a God-moment.

The transcendental God-realisation

And

The universal God-manifestation.


99.

My religion

Lovingly and cheerfully

Bows to all the other religions,

For each religion

Is a direct God-representative

Here on earth.


100.

From all great religions

I have learnt something

Unique.


101.

Hinduism

Has taught me the art

Of tolerance, silence, poise and peace.


102.

"Know thyself" —

This is the very breath

Of Hinduism.


103.

Hinduism has told me

There is only one way to enjoy life,

And that is through renunciation.


104.

"Lead me from untruth to Truth,

Lead me from darkness to Light,

Lead me from death to Immortality" -

This Hindu prayer has given me

My mind's illumination-height,

My heart's satisfaction-depth

And

My life's liberation-length.


105.

The Vedic seers of Hinduism

Saw the universal beauty of life

And became

The transcendental fragrance

Of its breath.


106.

"Infinity is that, Infinity is this.

From Infinity, Infinity came

Into existence.

From Infinity, when Infinity

Is taken away,

Infinity remains the same" —

This is, indeed, the pinnacle-height

That Hinduism has reached

To awaken, love and serve humanity.


107.

Hinduism says,

"O my brothers and sisters

Of the world,

As I feel safe in you,

So do I hope

That you will feel safe in me."


108.

Buddhism

Has taught me how to be

Inseparably one

With infinite Compassion

And

Shed sleepless tears

For the suffering humanity.


109.

Buddhism says

Mortification is not the right way

To achieve enlightenment.


110.

Buddhism says:

"Extremity serves no real purpose;

Follow the middle path.

There is no difference between

Man and man.

Cruelty against animals

Is the height of ignorance-life.

For liberation, forsake all allurements.

Desire-life is synonymous

With bondage-night."


111.

Buddhism

Blesses me with the message

Of the ever-transcending Height

And

Ever-deepening Depth.


112.

Christianity

Has taught me how to acquire

The art of God-surrender

And world-forgiveness.


113.

Christianity

Is a missionary religion

Par excellence.


114.

Simplicity, kindness

And forgiveness -

These three are

The most powerful branches

Of the life-tree of Christianity.


115.

"The Kingdom of Heaven

Is within you" —

This supreme discovery of Christianity

Is both birthless and deathless.


116.

Jesus Christ's Sermon on the Mount

Is Eternity's

Unparalleled source of inspiration

For the aspiring humanity.

Mother Earth cried through his heart.

Father Heaven smiled through his eyes.


117.

Humanity is humanity's admiration-mind

For Jesus of Nazareth.

Humanity is humanity's worship-heart

For the Son of God.


118.

Islam

Has taught me how to acquire

The art of God-reliance

And God-sacrifice

In sleepless eagerness.


119.

Islam

Is the driving force nonpareil

In propagating

Equality-democracy-wisdom-light

All the world over.

This is the Islamic contribution

To mankind.


120.

The supreme message of Islam

Is:

"There is no God but Allah."


121.

Islam's great prayer:

"All praise be to God,

The Lord of all the worlds,

The Merciful, the Compassionate,

The Master of the Day of Judgement.

It is He who is wise,

He who is powerful.

Guide Thou us

On the Path of Righteousness,

The Path of those who rejoice in Thee,

Not on that of those who ignore Thee

And work injustice."


122.

Judaism

Has taught me

That the art of constant

God-remembrance

And

Earthly prosperity

Are veritable Blessings from God.


123.

"Thou shalt love thy neighbour

As thyself" —

Conscious, constant and sleepless

Heart-expansion

Judaism offers to mankind.


124.

Christianity and Islam came into being

From the very breath of Judaism

To shake

The ignorance-somnolence-life-tree

Of humanity.


125.

Love of God, service to God

And manifestation of God

Judaism was, is and forever shall be

In an unprecedented way.


126.

Jainism

Has taught me how to acquire

The art of breathless self-discipline

In the purest sense of the term

And

Concern not only for human beings

But for each and every being,

Even at the lowest status

Of the soul's evolution.


127.

Jainism tells me,

"No asceticism, no salvation!

Intense self-discipline

Is of paramount importance.

Not earthly gratification,

But Heavenly satisfaction!"


128.

Sufism

Has taught me

That the outer dance

Enraptures the Sufi seekers

And

The inner dance unifies,

Reveals and manifests

The Divinity of the lover

And the Beloved all at once.


129.

Islam is the flower-beauty

And

Sufism is the fruit-sweetness thereof.


130.

The message of Sufism is

Love, love, love.

Everything has love

And everyone is love.

Sufism embodies love unfathomable,

Ecstasy immeasurable.

Nectar-delight Sufism spreads all-where.


131.

Sufism plies its boat

Between sweetness-shore

And

Soulfulness-shore.


132.

My ever-blossoming gratitude-heart

I offer

To each and every religion,

While remaining a soulful singer

Of the synthesis of all religions.


133.

To my greatest sorrow,

The 20th Century has suffered

From unimaginable and unforgettable

Religion-bankruptcy.


134.

To my great joy and relief,

In the 21st Century,

The Mother Goddess of Peace

Will visit each and every earth-family

To whisper and inspire

The supreme necessity

Of a oneness-world-family.

Her persuasion of her children

Will be founded upon

Her all-disarming Smiles.

God-receptivity-beauty

And

God-gratitude-fragrance

Will cover the entire

Length and breadth of the world.

Tomorrow's humanity

And

Tomorrow's Divinity

Will not only have infinitely more faith

In each other,

But also work together

For humanity to arrive at the Heart-Door

Of the Absolute Supreme

And

For Divinity to ring its Victory-Bell

In the readiness, willingness

And

Eagerness-home

Of humanity.
