Both Einstein and Devkota defy the adherence to individual gods and idol worship. A sense of atheism may surface in their assertion. However, in the heart of their ideas lies the call for glorifying the concept of godhood and religion as greater and more inclusive than what is generally believed and practiced in everyday life. In a broader sense, neither Devkota nor Einstein is an atheist. The cosmic sense — the emphasis on the convergence of individualities into one encompassing principle, the concerns for universal brotherhood and harmony — makes both these thinkers true preachers of humanity.
