What I Have Learned From Religions
During the last 18 months, I have traveled almost all the parts of this country. The message I have received from my extensive travels throughout the country is that most Indians - experienced and old, energetic and middle-aged, young and innocent - all look to religion for solace and safety. The religions are like exquisite gardens, places full of surpassing beauty and tranquility, like sacred groves filled with beautiful birds and their melodious songs. I truly think that religions are beautiful gardens. But they are islands. They are enchanting islets, veritable oases for the soul and the spirit. But they are islands nevertheless. However, if we can connect all these islands with love and compassion, in a 'garland project' for the new millennium, we will have a prosperous India in front of us.
