It is one faith that follows monotheistic beliefs, having denounced superstition & unreasonable rituals & encouraged the values of oneness & love at a time when the land was being torn apart by sectarianism, religious factions, and fanaticism of the sorts, encouraging a life of spirituality & service challenging the existing systems of social inequalities.
