Abstract

This article undertakes an impartial survey of the three great religions now active in India. Hinduism, with all the advantages of a long cultural history, but with the disadvantages of castes and popular superstitions, is being stimulated to a renaissance; Mohammedanism, once the religion of Indian rulers, is now stagnant, though its monotheism and its democratic organization present possibilities of a genuine contribution; Christianity, with its message of education and philanthropy, has been a notable factor in elevating life. Its moral ideals, however, are capable of being adopted or imitated by other religions.
