He assumes different forms and reveals Himself in different ways for the sake of His devotees.
The same God is worshiped in different countries and ages under different names and forms.
He may be worshiped in various ways according to different conceptions – some loving to call Him as father and others as mother, some as friend and others as beloved, some again as their sweet little child – but it is always one and the same God that is worshiped in all these diverse relations. . .
Many are the names of God and infinite forms through which He may be approached.
In whatever name and form you worship Him, through that you will realize Him.
Different creeds are but different paths to reach the one God . . .
The religious teachers of all lands and of all ages are but so many lamps through which the light of the Spirit streams constantly from the one almighty source.
– Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
