Truth is one, sages call it by various names - Rig Veda

Vedanta, as revealed to the saints of Ancient India, teaches that man's real nature is divine, that the true object of human life is to unfold and manifest this divinity and that truth is universal. Vedanta believes in one God who has both 'transcendental' and 'immanent' aspects. God-vision can be obtained by controlling nature, internal and external, and through paths (yogas) of knowledge (Jnana-yoga), selfless work (Karma-yoga), devotion (Bhakti-yoga) and psychic control (Raja-yoga).

Vedanta accepts all the religions of the world and reveres the great prophets, teachers, and sons of God, because it recognises the same divine inspiration in all. The Ramakrishna Order is founded on the ideals of Vedanta as propounded by and exemplified in the lives and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna, the great saint of Modern India and Swami Vivekananda, his chief disciple and himself a great spiritual luminary.
