Carlin on idolatry. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/540924605216346424/ Comparative religion is a figment! It follows from the foregoing premises that there is no such thing as comparative religion as taught in the seminaries. One might as well talk of comparative God, or comparative Bible or Heaven. There is comparative superstition and fanaticism and comparative idolatry and systems of philosophy, but it is a solecism to talk about comparative religion.
To see and appreciate the Soul of others is a higher state of awareness. To see only their outer characteristics provides a limited and incomplete perspective. Their current personality, just like their current physical body, is a temporary manifestation. They have had many bodies and many personalities but only one enduring Soul, only one continuous spiritual essence. See this essence and you will see the real person.
Knowledge is dependent on the knower for its existence. The knower does not require any tests for knowing his own existence. The knower therefore is the only reality behind knowledge and objects. That which is self-evident without the necessity to be proved, is alone real; not so other things. ~ Tripura Rahasya ~
