If there is ever to be a universal religion, it must be one that will have no location in place or time, one that will be infinite, like the God it will preach; one whose sun will sine upon followers of Krishna or Christ, on saints and sinners alike; on that will not be Hindu or Buddhist, Christian or Mohammedan, but the sum total of all of these, with infinite space for development; and one that with its catholicity will embrace in its infinite arms every human being, from the lowest to the highest man. It will be a religion that will have not place for persecution or intolerance in its polity, that will recognize divinity in every man and woman, and whose whole scope, whose whole force, will be centered in aiding humanity to realize its own true, divine nature.

-Swami Vivekananda
