"Does your Mythology/Religion have 'A' message from God, or does your Mythology/Religion have 'The' message from God? If you deny God, Mythology, Religion, existance or validity, still feel free to post an opinion.

I was born in a Hindu bramhin family. Hinduism has ' a thousand' messages/truths from 'gods' and from 'goddesses' and from 'the god.'

Buddhism on the other hand offers a message from an enlightened being(note: not from a 'god') which is not 'the' message.

Likewise for Zen.

My belief system is best characterized as pantheist, which doesn't have a specific message from God. Or, maybe one could say that it's about each person finding their own message.
