[Carl Jung on Christianity, Buddhism and Islam]

To Paul Maag

Dear Colleague, 20 June 1933

How subjective belief is you can see from the fact that I positively do not believe that Christianity is the only and the
highest manifestation of the truth.

There is at least as much truth in Buddhism, and in other religions too.

If for instance I had to choose between the Greek Orthodox Church and Islam, I would opt for Islam.

If you brag about your belief, others brag about theirs.

Thus all discussion is only a religious war, but any real discussion remains impossible.

With collegial regards,

Yours sincerely,
