This Manifest is to spell out my faith in Hinduism. I am not a fanatic nor am I against any other religion. They may keep their faith and allow me to have my faith. But it is found that Hinduism is subjected to vicious criticism by them. I refute such criticism. My conviction in my faith is above logic and in the spiritual plane. I respect all religions and consider them all as different paths to God. But the best path to God, no doubt, is Hinduism in its present form.
