What is religion? Religion is a lesson, a lesson which teaches the manner of
living aright and reaching the object for which we are born. This religion has
come time after time through those who have brought the Message of God to the
world. Those who have come with this Message of religion have given it in
different forms in accordance with the evolution of the people at that
particular time, but the religion was one and the same. There never has been any
other religion than one, for God is One, truth is One, and so religion is One.
If there is any difference it is the difference of the form, not of the soul. It
is the same water, the pure water, filled in several pitchers. One pitcher made
in India, the other in China, an other in Arabia, and an other perhaps in the
Western world. It is like a stream which comes through the fountain and falls in
various streams, but it is one and the same stream.
