In this talk, the case is made that Christianity, as taught by Jesus to his close disciples, is indeed a non-dual path to Realization. This is based on His assertion, “I and my Father are One,” and other affirmations of our oneness with Divine Presence.
Swami Vivekananda said, “The Omnipresent God of the universe cannot be seen until He is reflected by these giant lamps of the earth — the Prophets, the man-Gods, the Incarnations, the embodiments of God… Take one of these great Messengers of light, compare his character with the highest ideal of God that you ever formed, and you will find that your God falls short of the ideal, and that the character of the Prophet exceeds your conceptions.” — from Christ the Messenger, Los Angeles, California, 1900
