The Mystical Core of the Major Religious Traditions

4:00pm PDT | 7:00pm EDT |
10:00pm GMT

Is there a truth shared by all religions? Is it compatible with modern science? Can we verify this truth for ourselves? Although the world's great religious traditions provide a wonderful display of outer diversity, they also share an inner truth testified by their mystics. Moreover, this mystical truth is not a doctrine merely to be believed but can be directly realized in our own experience. In addition, it is possible to view this truth realized by the mystics and the truths of modern science as compatible ways of understanding the same underlying Reality.
