The idea of a single truth supporting a variety of expressions is itself one of the core-characteristics of the deep view of reality that underlies the whole wide gamut of Indian traditions. One of the most often quoted aphorisms expressing this acknowledgment of divergent views in spite of a single underlying reality is probably: ekam sad viprā bahudhā vadanti (R.V. 1.164), which translates as, 'the truth is One, but the wise call it by different names'. An interesting aspect of this saying is that the differences are not described as errors: it is the wise who give different names to the one truth. Moreover, one would miss the point if one were to take this saying as no more than a polite exhortation for religious tolerance. It rests on a deep, psychological understanding of the human condition, which says that reality as it really is, will always remain beyond our limited mental capacity to grasp and our even more limited capacity to express. Each individual can perceive and express that reality only to the extent and in the manner that their individual capacity and inclination allow.
