“Buddhists, Muslims, Christians: We all climb the same mountain.
The further up we climb with genuine intent, the closer we all get to the peak.
At the bottom of the mountain, one might claim to see a rabbit, the other might see a snake, the next one a pigeon.
Some might end up arguing with each other over who sees the truth.
But this is not important. The essence lies in the mountain being the same.”
