The essence of all the religions is one and the same

The essence of all the religions is one and the same since the Universal God gives it. The religions are different from each other because the religious leaders who are the human beings create the material that surrounds the essence. The skeleton is one and the same and there is no difference in the skeletons of the human beings. The difference lies only in the external materials covering the skeletons, which are flesh, skin etc., in these external materials differences arose due to deficiencies. Suppose there are two students. One is weak in physics and the other is weak in chemistry.

Each student mocks the other for the deficiency. Therefore, the deficiency is the root of difference and quarrels in the religions. The reason for the deficiency is the human brain that developed the external body of the spiritual knowledge. Therefore, the spiritual knowledge is the skeleton and the religion is its body. The deficiency in a religion can be removed by taking the merits of the other religions. Every religion has deficiency and the rectification of that deficiency should be from other religion without any ego and jealousy. Do not think that you are without defects. Do not think that your parents have no defects. Do not think that your teachers and preachers do not have defects. Therefore, observe others and take the merits from anybody without prejudice.

The blind thinking that your nation, your state, your district, your town or village, your caste, your family, your parents, etc., is the best or highest should be eradicated from your brain. Always base your self on your analysis and commonsense that is observed from the examples in the world. Your elders might have polluted the scriptures but this world is the best scripture written by God. This world-scripture is Universal without any color of any religion. You can develop the entire spiritual knowledge by observing this world and the scientific knowledge existing in the various examples or items of the world. Any human being cannot pollute these. You must be scientific and analytical in your belief. The ignorant and clever religious elders always exploit blind belief.

The religions have always taught self-denial

but the soul which naturally rises to heaven does not need to practice renunciation.

One should not fear for the thorny path, which alone is true.

For good deeds soul will go to temporary heaven, for bad deeds soul will go to hell till it gets transformed. But a soul who is involved in the practical service of God in human form without any expectation will go with HIM to His permanent abode.

The truth will attract only very few gems. The fraud will attract many gravel stones. If I want only the majority of gravel stones, I need not preach this divine knowledge any more, because already sufficient fraud is established by the blind tradition. One should not fear for the thorny path, which alone is true. One should constantly try to travel in that true path.

If the soul is in constant trail, God will help the soul by sanctioning any number of future human births with congenial atmosphere and one day or other the soul will certainly reach the true goal. This is better than reaching the false goal through the false path in this very human birth itself. But, remember, the effort should be really sincere and not a cinema action.
