Truth (Daily Teaching for 2/11/14)

Ultimate truth cannot differ from culture to culture or it is no longer ultimate. For example, scientific truths are scientific truths. Water doesn’t freeze at one temperature in one culture and at another temperature somewhere else. The same is true of spiritual truth. Although we surround our understandings of spiritual truth with different cultural practices and traditions from region to region, the truths which are the foundations of those practices are essentially the same. This is the basis for building understanding between traditions.
