“I believe in the religion of God” – Ibn Arabi

Why do the ‘One Garden’ inter-faith as inter spiritual living’ groups have the name ‘One Garden’?   This verse from Ibn-Arabi, exquisitely chanted, is reason enough;

My heart has come to harbor every form:

A pasture for gazelles – hermitage for monks

Pagoda for idols – Kaaba for pilgrims

Tablets for Torah – codex for Koran.

I follow Love’s religion, wherever

its camels turn.  Love is my faith and creed!
