Christians and Muslims are actually cousins

  • Christians and Muslims are actually cousins
    In fact, Christians and Muslims are actually cousins because both are the two branches of same ancestor Abraham.  One branch was headed by Ishmael, which became Islam. The other branch headed by Isaac became Christians.  Muslims recognize Jesus also as the precedent prophet to Mohammad.  Mohammad was very much pained at the crucifixion of Jesus and hence resisted the concept of human incarnation, which can never be relished by the co-human beings due to ego and jealousy. This is not difference of policy but it is due to the heart felt pain by Mohammad about Jesus.

     Hindus were always co-operative with every religion and you can find the peaceful co-existence of Christianity and Islam in India with out any violence.  In fact, Hinduism itself is a mini model of Universality of Religions. There are several sub-religions in Hinduism like Shaivism, Vaishnavism, Shaktayism etc., which co-existed based on unity in diversity.  In fact, Shankara co-related all the sub-religions and brought the unity based on single God called Brahman appearing in different forms like Shiva, Vishnu, Shakti etc. 

    The same process of unity of religions in one region was carried on by Mohammad, who established the concept of single God called as Allah.  Of course, Shankara brought such unity by powerful logic and debate, where as Mohammad brought the same unity through powerful sword.  The powerful knowledge is represented by sharp sword as said in Gita [Chchittvaa jnaanaasinaa….].  According to the circumstances and the mental level of the then existing people, knowledge or sword was used. In the time of Shankara, the quarrel was between scholars of various religions through arguments. In the time of Mohammad, the quarrel was between the heads of various religions through swords. The final result was one and the same.

  • Christians and Muslims are forever arguing about the one major difference in the religion--the parenthood of Jesus. While Muslims say that God doesn't beget sons, Christians say that Jesus is the only begotten son of God. Interesting!! They also differ with regard to Abraham's sons. Muslims argue that Ishmael is the chosen one and Christians argue that Isaac is the chosen one.

    Those arguments are foolishness.

    There is only one GOd. He comes in human form in every generation by entering the most deserving devotee known as 'Son of God' existing on the earth at that time. Thus the resulting Human incarnation, is a mixture of Son of God and God in the same human body. GOd is impartial and He comes down in human form by entering such 'Son of God' existing on the earth when He want to incarnate.

    Thus Krishna, Rama, Jesus, Mohammad, Bhudha, Shri Rama Krishna Parama Hamsa, Shirdi Sai etc etc are the same God came as human form.


    Even Mohammad was Human incarnation.

    When God enters the human being, the soul becomes His slave and serves God. The main specific purpose is to clarify the doubts of devotees directly. The prophet or messenger brings the message of God and delivers it to the people without any change in it. Such messenger is the best. Some messengers change the message as per their liking. Therefore, the best is that God delivers the message directly to the people through the mouth of human incarnation.

    Fortunately, Mohammad is the human incarnation and not simply the messenger and therefore the message, Q’ran, was not at all polluted. Similar is the case with Bible. There need not be any doubt about Gita since Krishna Himself declared as God. Even Buddha was a human incarnation and kept silent about the concept of human incarnation. In His time most of the people were atheists (Purvameemamsakas), who were even denying the existence of God and were involved in performing the sacrifices (Yajnas) to go to heaven for fulfilling their excess desires.

    The atmosphere was not congenial even for introduction of concept of the existence of God. Therefore, Buddha kept silent about God and His silence was meaningful because the absolute unimaginable God cannot be explained by words. He concentrated on the eradication of desires, which will help in getting the grace of God through selfless service. This suppression of the fact in view of the prevailing atmosphere was mistaken by the followers, who thought that Buddha was an atheist. All the followers of Buddha became atheists, but they were developing some discipline over the controller of desire. A defect is allowed for some time in view of growing some merit. Even though atheism was allowed, the control of desire was achieved. A strong defect should not be contradicted in the beginning and it is better to concentrate on some other easier concept to be introduced.
