The reality of truth
The truth and the reality is One; but the learned express it in different ways. The worldly sacred faiths may have separate words and languages but all the scriptures are replete with almost the same description of that Supreme Being and none can delineate that solitary, omnipresent and ultimate consciousness.

I had the chance to visit an old Church in Thessaloniki (Greece) which also remained a mosque for a long period during Muslim rule there.
The beatitude of the sanctorum is inexpressible. The vibrations of the sacred place create a pious feeling of clairvoyance.
True devotion is well responded by God and moments turn into eternity and eternity into flying seconds. I also had the chance to visit the biggest mosque of Asia in Bhopal in India.
The covered space and open field of the campus was filled with the vibrations of divine energy. The Invisible One here was more dominant than the seemingly empty surroundings of the premises.
At the Golden Temple in Amritsar, I found the truth behind Guru Nanak’s words,” Asankh granthah , mukhi ved path”, i.e. innumerable are the scriptures but Vedas top them all. The great sage had truly depicted God through his message to mankind.
I also had the chance to sit at the feet of the Buddha in Bangkok. The experience was ineffable and indescribable. One learns the purity of thought, action and speech here.
The visit to Jain Thirthankaras near Mount Abu was an astonishing experience which enriches one’s soul. The subtlety and the dexterity remind one of the perfection of the Creator.
And lastly, I joined the Hawan-Yajna at the 70-year- old seminary of Vedic preachers in Hisar, known as Dayanand Brahm Mahavidyalya, recently. The worship of god through fire, Agnihotra, proves the presence of the Controller of universe scientifically.
Every atom of cosmos is full of cosmic energy enveloped and filled by the divine consciousness which cannot be divided by the faiths of temporal thinking. Call Him by any nomenclature, but He is the same everywhere, ubiquitous.
