God can be realized through all paths. All religions are true. The important thing is to reach the roof. You can reach it by stone stairs or by wooden stairs or by bamboo steps or by a rope. You can also climb up by a bamboo pole.
Ramakrishna

This is the unique blessing of modern world that we have an opportunity to acquaint ourselves with variety of paths and we could choose to follow any one of them depending on our inclinations and inherent tendencies both of which constitute what Gita calls Swadharma.

One man’s food is another man's poison. We may not find other paths agreeable but must refrain from criticism for they distract, create bad karma (negativity) and are a waste of time. Let us instead rejoice at the unique opportunity and make a point to see the positives too
