Truth and Religion

Sincere people want to approach religion to learn how to love, ot learn how to be good to others. All great religions, scriptures and true saints of the world end up at one subject matter not being a muslim, Christian, Hindu, Jew, or a Buddhist but knowledge or truth. Truth cannot be different in different place in different times. Truth is a universal principle. What we learn in colleges today are relative truths, which are helpful in our practical everyday lives;how to be a good engineer or computer technologist, or manager or businessman. But what is the underlying truth? Where I am coming from? What is the goal of human life? Who am I? What is consciousness?

To understand the nature of consciousness within you is truth. Every part of your body is changing; even your mind is changing to some extent. But there is something constant throughout the changes and that is our consciousness. Therefore, when we talk about religion we are not taking about beliefs, blind faith or a particular set of rituals. We are talking about that science which gives us an understanding and an experience of truth the underlying truth within us and within all living beings. That truth harmonizes humanity and all living beings. Without that truth all so-called harmony is superficial and is doomed to failure.
