Do all Religions ultimately point to the same God?

Answer by Niraj Bidawatka

Yes. God is one and all religions point to the same God. Just as water is the same for all religions and for all castes, creeds and nationalities. Its called water in English, “neer” in sanskrit, “wasser” in German and “paani” in Hindi. But ultimately the substance is the same.

Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead

Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead

Similarly, the Christians call Him “God”, Muslims call Him “Allah”, the Jews call Him “Jehovah” and the Hindus call Him “Bhagavan”. But ultimately He is the same person. From the Bhagavad Gita we can understand that the name of God is Krishna.

The wasser of the Germans is not different from the water of the Englishmen. Similarly the Allah of the Muslims is not different from the Bhagavan of the Hindus. The term Allah means “Greatest”. Bhagavan means “one who possesses all opulences”. So the terms Allah, God, Bhagavan, Paramatma, etc. define the attributes and designations of God. But God has a name also. His chief names are Krishna and Govinda.

The Vedas state – Ekam brahma dvitiyam nasti: God is ONE – There cannot be two Gods. Thus all religions point to the same God, i.e. Krishna.
