Difference Religion Spirituality


Religion 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!

With the advent of Jesus Christ on the scene... the following that developed based on the teachings of Jesus Christ was termed as Christianity. Similarly the following of Gautama Buddha was termed as Buddhism. Both these religions primarily focus on the teachings of their preceptor namely Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha. Religions primarily focus on the ritual part of life. We adore god... we pray to God to seek his blessings.

On the contrary the travelers of the spiritual path... the seekers of spirituality desire becoming enlightened! They want to know and meet God in this very life. They are willing to travel the extra mile that is so much essential for every serious seeker of spirituality. Spirituality is knowing the true essence of spirit within... our soul within! Spirituality is becoming one with God... realizing our true essence... the I within!

Spirituality is gaining the Wisdom of Bhagavad Gita... the knower of which finally gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha). The followers of religion remain confined to the ritual part and never indulge in knowing God in its entirety. They never truly believe in the fact that the common man across the road can gain enlightenment and finally salvation. They believe more in gaining a seat in heaven than the kingdom of God!

The kingdom of heaven is not something desirable for human beings. Heaven exists in the core of sun where temperatures exceed millions of degrees centigrade. It is in such high temperatures our soul atman feels comfortable. Hell exists in the periphery of sun where temperatures are comparatively less and here the soul suffers for eternity! Bodily access to the kingdom of heaven is not permitted.

Whenever matching parents are not available on Mother Earth... the soul hibernates either in heaven or hell. In heaven if the residual balance of karma is positive and hell if negative! The moment matching parents become available on Mother Earth... the hibernating soul atman immediately manifests a body to work out its karma. Every soul atman on its cosmic journey desires gaining liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever at the earliest!

The travelers of the spiritual path... the serious seekers of spirituality never pursue religious documents as the goal of life. The essence of life... the absolute truth of life lies embedded in the pearls of wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata. This one single scripture is sufficient for human beings to gain enlightenment and finally salvation. Bhagavad Gita is the end of all!

On the contrary the definition of Dharma is, "Your right to do what is just and right and not what was destined". Dharma is the root elixir of all that exists in the cosmic system. It is Dharma that is inherently imbibed in every living being since birth. No religion or spirituality... every living being including human beings would survive but not without Dharma! Dharma is following the path destined by God!

When Lord Krishna had not yet come, Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed had not yet been born... how did mankind exist? Everything survived based on Dharma... the inherent guide and preceptor of all living beings! If we go through the definition of Dharma through the link given at the bottom... the definition of Dharma in its entirety becomes absolutely clear.
