- (i) The Maker of mankind will graciously accept
their gratitude whether the offering be laid in the temple or on the turf, whether in the enthusiasm of the heart, before a beautiful image expressing love or benignity or without iny visible object, in the bleak and desert air. -Walter Savege Laador | (ii) It is true, the Hindus worship idols. But in the Bhagavad Gita the supreme spirit is introduced as look. ing with pity on all these helpless childishcustoms not as condemning the worshippers of idol to death and destruction, but as saying with the sublimest and almost superdivine unselfishness. “Even those who worship idols worship me.” ls not this the same thought which St Paul expressed so powerfully at Athens :-Whon therefore ye ignorantly wor- ship, him declare I unto you, and is not this the spirit in which missionaries might and ought to approach every religion? Religions have always been much maligned and misrepresented, and here and elsewhere the golden rule applies :-Never to judge before we know-Max Muller. (iii) 0 India, is not this thy sacred misণion to be among the nations of the earth a people of the spirit, to give to all mankind an example, a lesson of true spirituality Thou has been in past ages the light of the world. Become so again But in order to become so, make no claim to be so. -Paul Bichard.
