4.2 To spread spirituality, deemphasize the feeling of 'Other-ness'
To spread spirituality, we must accept all sectors of it. To do this, we must pay heed to Krishna who said in Bhagavad-gita 12.13 (in connection with describing the characteristics of a spiritual person) that such a person should have the attitude of: Adveshtaa sarva bhootaanaam ... [One who, towards all living beings, has given up the feeling that they are 'other' or 'different' or 'separate', i.e., they do not belong to one's religion, sect, Guru (or teacher)-lineage, race, ethnic group, family, and so on.].
