“You also seem to think that what I’m doing here is in some way new or unusual.”Unquote

It might have been started, I think, with good intentions by Paul Carus and D.T. Suzuki and others as I understand from the article:

But later D.T. Suzuki revisited his intention when he saw that it was not good for the world. This is if I have understood it correctly.

It would have been good if the scripture have been left as it had reached and it would have not been manipulated; no additions, subtractions and deductions have been made.

One could always write one’s viewpoint with one’s comments separately.

This has been done by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) – The End Times Reformer of all religions (The Promised Messiah, Imam Mahdi, End times Buddha etc).

This is my opinion; others could have different view point; I understand

Please don’t mind

Thanks and regards
