The Many in the One
From Ellora Caves, India
“Tell me something,” I asked our guide at the end of the tour of the Ellora Caves. “How did three distinct faiths coexist here as one?”
He thought a while.
“The Ellora Caves are carved in along a gigantic crescent – just like the moon much past its fulness” he replied, poetically. “The moon reflects itself separately on several pots filled water. But there is only one moon, just as there is oneness in the cosmos…”
This was one of the most beautiful explanations I had ever heard, in any place!
