The world would be a much poorer thing if one creed absorbed the rest – Dr S Radhakrishnan



We cannot have religious unity and peace so long as we assert that we are in possession of the light and all others are groping in the darkness.

When two or three different systems claim that they contain the revelation of the very core and center of truth and the acceptance of it is the exclusive pathway to heaven, conflicts are inevitable. In such conflicts, one religion will not allow others to steal a march over it, and no one can gain ascendancy until the world is reduced to dust and ashes.

The Hindu solution to the problem is to seek the unity of religion not in a creed but in a common quest.

The world would be a much poorer thing if one creed absorbed the rest. God wills a rich harmony and not a colorless uniformity.

– Dr S Radhakrishnan
