There have been two kinds of religion in the world: the religions of meditation and the religions of prayer. And they have existed like enemies; they have divided the whole of humanity.
For example, Buddhism is a religion of meditation, Christianity is a religion of prayer, and up to now there has been no bridge between them. It has not only divided humanity, it has divided each human being into two parts – man’s wholeness needs to be fulfilled in its wholeness. He has both aspects to his being.
One aspect is fulfilled by meditation, another aspect is fulfilled by prayer and if one sticks to one against the other, then he remains only half. Hence in the past, the so-called holy men were not really holy because they were not whole. It is because of this schizophrenic division that religion has not been able to bring the revolution it is capable of.
My effort here is to create a bridge.
