Pi is seeking only to love God to the best of his ability by practicing all three religions. All three of these religions involve devotion to a God (or gods) and love of the people and the Earth around them. However, I don’t believe that they are all the same because they focus on different aspects of that goal. Hinduism seems to focus on love of the Earth and all the souls on it in it’s worship of Brahman. Christianity is focused on the love of neighbors and the people around them in light of Christ’s love and sacrifice. Islam is focused more on the love of God, in the constant prayers and deep religious contracts that Pi took part in as a Muslim. Faith and belief are different in my mind because belief is based on logic and sight, while faith goes a bit further and is confidence in something beyond the senses.
