When I asked about religion to one of my friend, he said that religion is something that keeps him motivated and helps him distinguish between what is right and what is wrong. He said it can be a motivation in a positive way but can also be used for terrorism, depending upon how it is interpreted. Terrorist’s ‘godfathers’ make use of deformed religious teachings to disillusion the mind of innocent people.
Generally people interpret religions as different sets of rules and regulations that bound the person to follow as per their both in a particular caste.
All the religions are the same. There is nothing superior or inferior. It is the community that tries to demonstrate and explain the superiority of a particular religion and thus try to convert others into theirs.
True religion teaches simplicity and takes you closer to Nature. What is not required is never advocated in religion.
It can guide to the positive ways but can also mislead you. What matters finally is your mindset.
No religion is superior to another. All contain the same teachings. Spiritual leader in the past studied texts from all the religions under guidance of axle teachers. Hence there is no need of fighting over it.
Therefore, religion is your true nature and by knowing your true nature you will be able to correct the decisions of life. And this RELIGION.
