Celibacy/Abstinence/Take up Islam
Sir i think you haven't studied religion combined with history. Islam is the final revelation of dharma in practical and social world.. Quran is the final book of revelation.. you should study islam by studying quran with its context then you will be guided if god wills..you say the final sentence "The Supreme being is the absolute truth" .Practising Islam means following it in all aspects of life.. you cant do idol worship and worship the creation by saying that gos is in it.. creator differs from creation and he is at exalted station..I also advise you to research on the status of ram,krishna etc.. they are considerd as myths by westerners but their action may resemble as the prophets of god not themselves as god.. even though idolatry is abolished and comndemned in vedas,baghavadgita why do people commit it.. people with tremendous knowledge like you should create awareness among people on idolatry and worship of creation and try to guide them to worship creator as shown in islam..? God preferred Abraham over other people so his traditions are taking lead in the world and islam is the fastest growing in the world.. So I humbly request you to study islam by original sources of quran and sahih hadith((sahih bukhari and muslim) which may be available in english) with prejudice and May Allah guide you
HE decides who takes, which path, to reach HIM. One accepts HIS decision and follows. There are as many paths to reach HIM, as there are people. All paths lead to HIM alone, just as all rivers empty into the mighty ocean. Follow the path which HE has shown you, whichever it may be and reach HIM first. You may then decide which path is better, if that matter still remains.
ॐ तत् सत्
(That Supreme being is the absolute truth)
