Wise men only strengthen the faith

‘What is in this? A Christian comes, gives you a Bible and converts you into Christianity: a Mohamadan gives you a copy of the Quran and changes you into a
Mohamadan: a Hindu has his Gita for the same purpose.’
What a fund of wisdom.
‘Truth is one: all the scriptures expound this Truth though in different words.
What purpose can ever be served by these proselytisers?
They only change man’s
external cloak, a few of his habits.
Can they ever go near the Atman, the Eternal
Sakshi? Only dull-witted people engage themselves in such missions. Wise men
will only seek to strengthen the individual’s faith in his own religion.’

~ Inspired talks, Swami Sivananda
