Religion as a humanising force
AS IS well-known, the Theosophical Society is committed to exploring
what may be called the Perennial Wisdom of the Ages, to which gamut of
insight and knowledge the greatest religions of the world have
contributed substantially and I feel privileged to be granted this
opening to contribute my mite on illuminating how Christianity in
particular is fertilising this terrain of timeless wisdom, which could
be truly considered the Truth.
Regi Siriwardena: returning to Ithaca of the heart
