“What is the best religion?” asked a truth seeker.
“Self-realization,” Master Yogananda replied, “Self-Realization is in fact the only religion. For it is the true purpose of religion, no matter how people define their beliefs. A person may be Christian or Jewish, Buddhist or Hindu, Muslim or Zoroastrian; he or she may proclaim that Jesus Christ is the only way, or Buddha, or Mohammed—as indeed, millions of believers do. He or she may insist that this ritual, or that place of worship, bestows salvation. But it all comes down to what he or she is within.”
