World Religions


The following are brief and humble descriptions of a few of the world's religions.

Preamble
By Swami Shivapadananda

Man sooner or later must realize that he is a thinking being endowed with discriminating faculties. This is the special blessing of God and Nature to man. Therefore it behoves man to willingly, freely and lovingly practise those disciplines that would make man manifest his Real Nature which is Divine. These excercises are found in all religions.

These disciplines are practical, genuine and well-tested by the votaries of the respective religions. The only criterion is that one would take it seriously and perform those exercises with sincerity, regularity and purity of motive. Be loyal to the ideal. This in turn will yield the highest result.

My prayer is that God gives you the strength and discrimination to realize the Truth. In conclusion, I appeal to you to join me in the following prayer:

Om sarveshaam mangalam bhavatu
Sarveshaam svatir bhavatu
Sarveshaam shantir bhavatu
Sarveshaam purnam bhavatu
Sarveshaam mangalam bhavatu

Om shantih! Shantih! Shantih!

May there be good to all
May there be auspiciousness to all
May there be peace to all
May there be fullness to all
