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!
