Different Rivers


trayī sāṅkhyaṁ yogaḥ paśupatimataṁ vaiṣṇavamiti

Different paths to realisation are found in the three Vedas, by the philosophy of Sankhya, Yoga, Shiva worshippers, Vaishnava Shastras. People follow many different paths, straight or crooked, according to their individual temperament, depending on that which they consider best, or most appropriate–and reach you alone just as rivers enter the ocean.

This is the reason that Hinduism should be (and mostly is) more tolerant than many other faiths. It is not my way or hell for you, there is a recognition that we are all on the path to God. I’ve included the Sanskrit transliteration here as I feel it is one to memorize.

Wishing you well,

Ram Ram.
