I went to my home town and was sitting with my cousins. They were demeaning people from other religions. The way they were talking about them I felt like they feel they are some superior breed and rest are not. How judgemental. Then I was sitting with few well educated people and even they ahve similar attitude. They were not deameaning others but still they were trying to prove they are better. we are such a slave to ego that we need everything in this world to satisfy ego and we cant even accept that. We have made religion also a way of satisfying ego. If I go into depth of any religion, they all teach same thing. They all teach love and they all teach that there is one God which is inside us. If every religion is same then which one is superior and which follower becomes superior? I definitely wonder. Then I asked someone, ok tell me what does Islam say, a hindu did not have answer. What does Hinduism say, for that also a Hindu did not have answer. We have been following whatever is being told to us and then we add our own interpretation and then we fight. Now we dont know what the other person knows, our ego wants to prove that it knows best and it knows all even if it means that we dont know what the other one says. So to prove own knowledge better and having incomplete knowledge about the other person or religion, we try to prove that our religion is better.
So there are few things, a person who is fighting over religion does not know religion. Second thing, we do not fight over religion, we fight over ego. Now ask yourself, is it a good thing or bad thing? Now lets understand the purpose of religion to understand this mystery further. A religion is a set of guidelines designed to guide our soul to reach final destination called as God. Now the destination is one but the paths to reach there could be many. All paths converge into one destination. So where does it matter, who is following which path when ultimately everyone has to reach to same point and everyone would become one or may be already is one. There are 5 ways atleast to reach to my place from different directions and so amny times I take different routes just for fun. Does it matter which route I am taking and should my brother fight over the fact that why did you take this route not the other one? Now do you understand what we have been doing? Our final abode is same, that is to reach to God and all the paths lead to that abode. Where does it matter which route or religion we have been following. So accept everythinga nd be open to all.
