Annie Besant Thoughts



The breadth of Hinduism must not be narrowed, nor its wide extent be lessened. All aspects of truth are necessary, and all the coloured rays combine to make the one white beam of truth; therefore each should try to learn from others those aspects of truth that his own vision does not easily distinguish, and thus enrich and widen his knowledge.

If truth is to rule the minds of men, differing in temperaments, differing in type, differing in the stage of evolution reached, it must be presented in different ways.

India and Hinduism are one…make no mistake. Without Hinduism India has no future. Hinduism is the soil into which India’s roots are struck, and torn out of that she will inevitably wither, as a tree torn out from its place.
