We find that followers of all religions are after happiness. The natural religion of man is but the one Religion of Bliss.
It is due to rank ignorance that we break our heads on the score of the existence of unreal castes and creeds which are misunderstood to be real owing to our long standing and deep rooted belief in them, accustomed as we are to them from our very cradle? Is it right to attribute name and form or caste and creed, or community and race to that indescribable Supreme Power of Bliss, which is radiant always in all beings.
It is only when the evils of religion are removed, one gets a chance to enjoy the happiness of freedom, released from the bondage of misery. If not, there is no chance at all at any time be relieved of the misery born of mutual dissension and quarrels on the score of diverse castes and creeds.
