Religion is from society, society is not from Religion…

     In the beginning of human being how could religion have its existence ?How firstly, someone prayed or worshipped anywhere ? To any stone, in the cave by observing rocks, to the gap of tree trunk?. By what transparent thing on every surface where humans had used to pray to it and things worked for them?. How the way things have been working for human beings from the ages… !!?  Those times even though the centres of worship were small but it worked..  I think believing in an ultimate is working more than anything. Today, many cults have made hundreds of big centres for the Worship, but the belief of people has been reduced towards nature. They feel proud of their own capabilities of creating centres or big monuments..

        Things are changed now.. Those times, saints or monks used to stay at some devotees’ homes and now many devotees stay at saints’ or monks’ places when they go away. Change is always a part of time but the things are really changed with partiality. I heard about a matter that happened with one of our family friends. They went to a place  which was popular for devotees. They reached there and asked for the room. The guy in the office gave keys without having a look into them.  The room was not really clean but they could adjust there with some less facilities. After a few times they went to worship where they met monks and talked sometime. Eventually monks came to know that they recommended to stay there by one of the main trusties and the room changed with more facilities suddenly.. !!?. Many rooms were available there and it was surprising to see that attitude towards them.. !!  They also  came to know that my friend was from outside India and he could contribute more in trust to develop that place. Our family friend felt that how the way things changed for them when they found a wealthy family by one cult ? ! Though families who are staying there have some responsibilities during the stay but it should not divide by the wealth of devotees.   Maybe not all cults or places have the same attitude but I heard that many religious places have this kind of theories to handle the guests. For the find of wealth they forget a way of religion. Religion has nothing with these types of transactions. It is miles away from there.

      What is Religion is a big question from decades. I think Religion is still there from the ages. It has never changed its place. It has no discrimination, partiality, transactions, business or any other thing like that.

      If we can understand the way of one element of nature, then the true definition of Religion will be known.        

Thank You So Much..
