Article XXXIII: Unity of Religion

Although leaders in other religions do not often claim that all religions can lead to the same Truth, it is believed by Hindus that there are infinitely many paths to the same ultimate Truth. In the Vedas proper, the Samhitas, it is often stated that, "Truth is one. Sages call It by various names... These various names manifest the different aspects and attributes of the same and one Reality." Sri Ramakrishna, who was Swami Vivekananda's guru, is believed to have experienced ultimate Truth in many ways. In Ramakrishna's own words, "So many religions, so many paths to reach the same goal. I have practiced Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, and in Hinduism again, the ways of the different sects. I have found that it is the same God towards whom all are directing their steps, though along different paths."
