Dr S Radhakrishnan Thoughts on Hindu Religion

Hinduism is more a way of life than a form of thought. While it gives absolute liberty in the world of thought, it enjoins a strict code of practice. It insists not on religious conformity but on a spiritual and ethical outlook on life. On the principle that the very best is not the enemy of the good, Hinduism accepts all forms of belief and lifts them up to a higher level. Belief and conduct, rites and ceremonies, dogmas and authorities are subordinate to the art of conscious self-delivery and contact with the Divine. The men of experience feel the presence of God and do not argue about it. The shoals and shallows of existence are submerged in a flood-tide of Joy. Dr S Radhakrishnan
