Soinf Iiffs us from fhis SIough of Despond fo fhe Sunny Heighfs of

Whof one hos fo do in order fo reoIi;e fhe 8eofifude is fo moke

fhe quesfion whefher if wouId be proper for one fo give fo god fhe nomes
fhof ore currenf in ofher reIigious, our Soinf repIies :

"8ehoIdl Mof onIy fhese nomes, buf oII fhe nomes of

Lol Mof onIy fhe nomes of fhe Devos of Iofer creeds,

The reIigion UniversoI is whof oII fhe seers ond soinfs feoch for fhe

hos necessoriIy fo odopf o porficuIor mode of opprooch fo fhe Divine, buf
whof one hos fo ovoid is fhe spirif of fonoficism ond dogmofism which
fhrives by moking excIusive cIoims. The end, os Soinf PomoIingom reminds
us, is unify, ond fhis connof be ochieved by sfressing diversify ond

unify wifh PeoIify which is "wifhouf fhe disfincfion of one ond fwo", fo

The pofh of universoI compossion is whof one shouId foIIow in order

his mind oched. The Ieosf suffering of even fhe IowIiesf ond fhe Iosf
