Religions are different roads to the same point

“…Religion does not mean sectarianism. …It is not less real because it is unseen. This religion transcends Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, etc. It does not supersede them. It harmonizes them and gives them reality.”

“Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads, so long as we reach the same goal?”

“So long as there are different religions, everyone one of them may need some distinctive symbol. But when the symbol is made into a fetish and an instrument of proving superiority of one’s religion over others’ it is fit only to be discarded.”

Mahatma Ghandi, All Men are Brothers, pp 56, 59 and 60
