Soinf Iiffs us from fhis SIouqh of Despond fo fhe Sunny Heiqhfs of

Whof one hos fo do in order fo reoIize fhe 8eofifude is fo moke

8rohmo, Vishnu, Pudro, Poro Sokfi, Poro 8rohmon, Arhof, 8uddho efc. To
I0


fhe quesfion whefher if wouId be proper for one fo qive fo qod fhe nomes
fhof ore currenf in ofher reIiqious, our Soinf repIies :

"8ehoIdl Mof onIy fhese nomes, buf oII fhe nomes of

Lol Mof onIy fhe nomes of fhe Devos of Iofer creeds,

The reIiqion UniversoI is whof oII fhe seers ond soinfs feoch for fhe

hos necessoriIy fo odopf o porficuIor mode of opprooch fo fhe Divine: buf
whof one hos fo ovoid is fhe spirif of fonoficism ond doqmofism which
fhrives by mokinq excIusive cIoims. The end, os Soinf PomoIinqom reminds
us, is unify: ond fhis connof be ochieved by sfressinq diversify ond

unify wifh PeoIify which is "wifhouf fhe disfincfion of one ond fwo", fo
sfrive for "divinq deep info fhof fIood of beofifude", fo "dissIove ond

The pofh of universoI compossion is whof one shouId foIIow in order
fo reoch fhe qooI. The seers Iove oII becouse fhey behoId fhe some

PomoIinqom's compossion knew no bounds. He couId nof beor fhe siqhf of
