Religion is a strange subject in today's world. At one time, it used to be the realm of close-minded priests and prophets. Now, it is openly debated, and that, if nothing else, is a sign of progress. Debate has lent an international vein to religion, showing scholars that despite its myriad forms, all religion is based on basic tenets which are the same. The religions differ in inessentials facets, and the essence is the same. All religions have the same kind of irrelevant dogmas, principles, rituals, ceremonies, techniques and procedures. However, they also have the same message. They teach the eternity of the soul, and the existence of something beyond the physical realm. Mankind has no beginning, and it has no end. The universe is governed by a superior entity, immutable, eternal and undying. All religions are based on the quest for this being, the one called God. They search for ways to return to his embrace, become one with him. Despite their forms, this is the essence of all religions, and in understanding this, mankind will find true peace and end all religious debate. Swami Vivekananda and other great thinkers believed this, and in this book, readers will understand how to find meaning in a world with many Gods who are essentially one.
