Swami Vivekananda on Vedanta

It is a most glorious dispensation of the Lord that there are so many religions in the world; and would to God that these would increase every day, until every man had a religion unto himself! Vedanta understands that and therefore preaches the one principle and admits various methods. It has nothing to say against anyone – whether you are a Christian, or a Buddhist, or a Jew, or a Hindu, whether mythology you believe, whether you owe allegiance to the prophet of Nazareth, or of Mecca, or of India, or of anywhere else, whether you yourself are a prophet – it has nothing to say. It only preaches the principle which is the background of every religion and of which all the prophets and saints and seers are but illustrations and manifestations.
