Deus non alligatur. God is not bound. Nibbanam paramam sukham. Unbinding is the Highest Happiness. The Heart is Divinity. God is the primal radiance of Divinity. Nature is the primal manifestation of Divinity. The Buddha is the primal realization of Divinity. La ilaha il Allah. Allah is Complete Wholeness.

Differences and Non-differences

There are both differences and non-differences between Yeshu of Nazareth and Siddhartha Gautama; between Muhammad and Guru Nanak; between Sri Krishna and Abraham; between Vardhamana and Kongfutzu; between Zarathustra and Ramana Maharshi. Each is different, because each has limitations as well as advantages; each is non-different, because each can act as the ishta-guru, or 'chosen guru', the spiritual friend. The charge of 'relativism' does not apply, since differences are acknowledged. The charge of 'exclusivism' does not apply, since non-differences are acknowledged. And if none of the above seem worthy of being a spiritual friend, then an infinite number of other events awaits your attention.

:-) Yes. Great post..

There is no real difference, only on the surface, between all those Great Beings. Only One Great Being with different faces.
