having realized once for all the Truth, which is the goal of all life and the end of each and every religion, I have thereby transcended all religions; and to me, therefore, every religion is equally an approach for those who have yet to arrive at the same infinite and indivisible Ocean of love and knowledge, peace and bliss that now and again, here and there, continues rippling with selfless service and unsolicited sacrifice through the unflinching faith and sublime devotion of its lovers.
