IF THERE IS ONE GOD - THEN WHY ARE SO MANY RELIGIOUS SECTS QUARRELLING WITH EACH OTHER ???
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
An explanation of the above Question by Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa:
''Once Keshab Chandra Sen, the leader of the Brahmo Samaj, asked our Master, "Since there is only one God, how is it that there are so many sects quarreling with one another?"
The Master replied: "You see, people always quarrel over their lands, properties, and other things of the world, saying, 'This land is mine, and that is thine.'
In this way they divide this earth in various ways by drawing lines of demarcation to distinguish their respective properties; but no one ever quarrels about the open space that is above the earth, for that belongs to none, as there can be drawn no lines on it to distinguish one's property from that of another;
Similarly, when the mind rises above all worldly concerns he can have no occasion to quarrel, for then he reaches a certain point which is the common goal of all."
