Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

The Hindu and Muslim priests both speak against each other's religion, but do you know what religion is? Religion is a cage and the people who follow it are all birds locked up inside. It is meaningless to leave one's religion to adopt another. It is like going from one cage to another. The wire binding the wings of the bird must be cut.

Each person must make individual efforts to sever his own leash; for example, by renunciation or being indifferent to food and drink. But above all, efforts should be made to cut the cord though love.

Love God; for when the Sadguru comes he snaps the cord and frees the bird.

I am the Christ and the world exists because of me!

For me there is no time, space, cause, effect, duality, or anything that exists besides me. There is only unity.
