are simply ways of life... following of the enlightened masters of the various
era! Every religion stems from an enlightened master... never otherwise! Whenever
one gains enlightenment and preaches the wisdom to the masses... one develops
primarily helps us keep a balance in life as a physical manifested being. We do
not necessarily be religious in nature. We can simply follow the spiritual path.
It is the field of spirituality that ultimately guides the destiny of a human
being. What is right or wrong... must we given in or stand up and face the truth...
how we shape our physical realm of life is all governed by spirituality. And what
root of all religions is Dharma (righteousness)... not faith! When not one religion
existed on Mother Earth... the humanity still survived. How? Dharma is that inherent
ingredient in the cosmic system which forms the sap of living form! Devoid of
Dharma (righteousness) life simply could not exist on Mother Earth or in the Cosmos!
religion primarily is a following of an enlightened master. No enlightened human
being would ever teach or preach anything that is wrong. Having reached the level
of enlightenment... the soul atman within having gained its pure original pristine
form... any impurities within an enlightened being is absolutely ruled out. It
is only when the dross within removes completely... one gains enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana)... never before!
second path is lived by our physical manifest itself... the one prompted by our
ego. This is where religion comes into play. As we live life as a member of the
community... we need to follow certain rules framed by our religions masters.
If all the family members go to a temple, church or a mosque on a particular festive
occasion... it becomes imperative for us to follow!
is not religion... it is simply a matter of faith that some people believe in
the existence of God Almighty but not Jesus as the only son of God. Why? It is
for the simple reason that Jesus Christ truly is not the only son of God. Every
human being for that matter is a true son of God. Jesus Christ was born a normal
human being and gained enlightenment and finally salvation. His following was
religion is not only the oldest but the best religion amongst all. This is the
only religion that teaches human beings to gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha). Hinduism believes in the fact that every human
being has the right to the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). Following
Hindu religion... one can reach the kingdom of God with ease.
we try to understand we would realize that every religion develops after an enlightened
soul. The teachings of Jesus Christ culminated into Christianity and those of
Gautama Buddha into Buddhism. Every religion primarily teaches us to follow the
path of truthfulness, ethics and morality. There is never a religion of hate.
Every religion is a different path to the same goal.
stems from community living. As the society progressed and enlightened beings
manifested on Mother Earth... their teachings and followings were termed as religion.
Religions primarily focus on worshiping God as the Creator and maker of all...
with whose grace the whole Cosmos exists. In Buddhism the existence of God itself
is denied... yet, they all believe in a source of power... an energy source that
is the cause for all existence in the Cosmos!
is simply no connection between pursuit of knowledge and religious beliefs one
follows! Pursuit of knowledge becomes necessary to earn a living! To spend the
sojourn of 70 to 80 years on Mother Earth happily... it becomes imperative for
human beings to gain knowledge... develop a career in the chosen goal of life!
the religion I have... was that all really possible? One never chooses ones religion!
We are rather born into it. We get our religion by birth. The religion of our
parents becomes our religion. If I am born in a family of Jains, I become a Jain
when I grow up. None can alter this equation. The residual balance of karma of
our past demands so.
