“Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider.”—Sir Francis Bacon, 16th-century English philosopher.
Albert Einstein once said, “It seems to me that whoever doesn’t wonder about the truth in religion and in science might as well be dead.” Is there is an underlying truth to the world’s religions despite their enormous differences? These universal truths are not explained in any comparative religious books. This book provides the basics for seekers to understand how the “Einsteins” of religion – the saints, sages, directly live the Ultimate Reality – and how to find this truth within their own religions. This guide is for individuals to put their search in context, and provides the perspective necessary in such a multifaceted and potentially bewildering comparison.
Exploring the three psychological types of believers in all religions (exoteric, mesoteric, and esoteric), author Ralph Calabria delineates the major differences between these types. Not a “new age” book which claims all religions are the same, it delves deeply into the one golden universal thread which can link them. The Cosmic Religion illuminates the Ancient Truth discovered in the recorded teachings of Jesus Christ, Bhagavan Krishna, Gautama Buddha, Lao Tzu, Moses, Muhammad, Paramhansa Yogananda, and others.
For many decades Ralph Calabria’s determination to develop and share a complete vision of religious truth has motivated his research, writing, lecturing, meditating, and likewise his seeking guidance from saints and sages.
Now that my book is available on Amazon, I will be posting a blog at least once a month.
