Thoughts – Religion is not the destination but just a path

All religions, including Hinduism, are mere roadways for making spiritual progress; they are not the destination. We mistake the roadways for the destination and create confusion. If the roadways are viewed as the destination, automatically we elevate them to an absolute status. Then by default our roadway, or our religion, becomes the one and only way. Even though we may not say so, through this error, we undermine all other religions.
