Dear KRS ji,Srimathi Dr. Renuka Ji,
There is nothing to ‘admit’. I did not lie, nor to my knowledge hid something intentionally. I did not clearly present my thoughts and I clarified it.
By the way, I do not know any follower of any spiritual path who thinks that the teachings apply only to the respective group And not Universal.
If you still think, I should ‘admit it’, then Ido unconditionally and double down on it, offering my apologies in addition.
Also, I was going to respond to your earlier post. It is so impressive that you can pick up languages at will, learn and apply. God has blessEd you with unusual talents. I am barely proficient in Tamil and as you can see, I can not express myself clearly in English either!
Do you understand ‘Ilakkia’ Tamil? Do you read Tamil scriptures as well?
Going back to Islam, then, do you think then, Muslims understand and appreciate the ‘different ways’ of worship, in the creed and outside the creed? Just curious. Thanks.
Lying is too harsh a word.
You did not lie but you felt that you should just " modify" the actual fact a little bit to be polite to other sampradhayas.
Didnt we all see the Mahima of Bhagawan? That finally the actual message that His teachings are Universal was made evident by you.
Dont get me wrong.
I can see that you are sincere in your bhakti to Bhagawan.
When a bhakta is devoted to God or Guru, even a slightest personal thought for the greater good would not be allowed by God or Guru cos its at this stage that the Bhakta's " I am the doer" starts to get dissolved and one starts to lose one's free will.
Free will feels " I can modify Bhagawan's message and say its only for Bhagawan's disciples"
Divine Will deletes that thought from you cos that would generate Karma and Divine will makes you reveal the actual message.
I am glad to see that you are blessed yourself.
Coming to languages..I sat for both Sanskrit and Arabic languages exams.
I teach Sanskrit too and I also teach Grantham script.
I love languages..knowing 6 in total but I must admit that though I read Tamil, I do not read it too fast but after joining forum and reading some tamil post here my Tamil has improved a lot
But honestly to tell you the truth, knowledge of Sanskrit and Arabic is bookish knowledge.
True jnaana is transmited in the sound of silence and the brain " Google Translates" it to the default language of the person.
I understand why Lord Buddha preached in local language, cos the actual message is in any language a seeker speaks.
Coming to your question as " would any Muslim understand and appreciate different ways "
Yes..I have met many and also met many who are rigid and do not appreciate.
So I do not generalize and the actual question we all finally ask ourselves is
"Ko' ham"/Naan yaar"( Who am I) and not 'who is that person" or "who is this person"
So I usually focus on my journey and let others have their mode to approach God and do not really wonder who appreciates any worship or not.
