Broadness of Hinduism

Swami Vivekananda says :

The goal of all Raja Yoga teachings is how to concentrate our minds, then, how to discover the innermost recesses of our minds, then, how to generalize their contents and form our own conclusions from them.
Raja Yoga, therefore, never asks the question what our religion is: whether we are theists or atheists, whether Christians, Jewish or Buddhists. We are human beings; that is sufficient. Every human being has the right and the power to seek for religion. Every human being has the right to ask the reason, and to have their question answered by themselves, if they only take the trouble.

From Swamiji's book "Raja Yoga," Chapter One, "Introductory." Complete Works, 1. 131.
